Let's Build Something Awesome Together

My name is Jared. Born in New Jersey; raised in Philadelphia, Tallahassee, and Mississippi; and educated in Louisiana, California, and Texas. Learned web development at The Iron Yard Academy and am currently helping build web apps in Baton Rouge as well as some proprietary freelance work.

My site is a work in progress, so feel free to poke around. I’d love to hear from you if you’re looking for some help building an app or website, or if your team wants someone who loves working with people as much as writing code, and who excels at useless trivia and 30 Rock or Office Space quotes (please note that said quotes do NOT fall under the heading of “useless trivia”). You can email me, read some more words I wrote or just go back to the wonderful carnival of awesomeness that is whatever you were looking at before you came here (but I hope you email me).

Software Developer (Full-Time Independent Contractor)

As one of two software developers at United Networks of America (UNA), I get to work on both front-end and back-end projects. Most of my work is proprietary but I do anything from converting server-side rendering to JQuery calls on our LowerDrugs app, creating local API structures for iFrames, updating pharmaceutical database information, researching/implementing Google's new AMP project into several of our websites, and any projects in between.
