Hi, I'm Alex Carpenter, a self-taught developer from Grand Rapids, Michigan. I love the intersection between design and code along with creating performant front-end code.

I have been working as a front-end developer dabbling in design and UX for the past 4 years. Previous to becoming a developer I graduated college with a Associates Degree in photography, spent a year in culinary school and created my own video production company. All of these jobs and skills had a strong hand in getting me to where I am today at Mighty in the Midwest.
