hi, i'm joah. i'm a frontend developer based out of southeast texas. i build webapps, brands, and communities. i'm husband to haley, and dad to a beautiful daughter.
FSG Smart Buildings hired me as a consultant to lead the frontend development of their Enterprise IoT management and diagnostic platform.
Coinigy hired me as their lead frontend developer dedicated to improving the user experience of the cryptocurrency portfolio management platform.
After leaving Capital One, I teamed up with Aaron Davis to start a design & development agency as an umbrella for our collective freelance/consulting work. I have gotten business administration / development experience, as well as have had the opportunity to work directly with a variety of small businesses.
I joined RookieUp as a mentor, helping out with their frontend development bootcamp program.
I co-founded the first coworking space in Beaumont, Texas. I got some unique experiences running a local business, and I really enjoyed building a community. (blog post coming soon. I promise.)

Over the summer of 2017, I worked as the developer on a team creating a scheduling platform for league-based teams. I built out the backend -- database structure, data management/user authentication system, REST API, scheduling algorithm, as well as the frontend -- UI/UX, React app to consume the backend API, custom-created input methods for the specific use case, as well as a lot more. I was the only dev working on the project.
After I left Capital One, I continued working with them as a consultant on frontend development, best practices, and client implementation.
I worked in Capital One's Small Business department, joining the team as a part of the acquisition of AmeriCommerce. I continued my duties from AmeriCommerce, as well as assisted in building out the Spark Business banking web interface. I decided to leave after reconsidering my priorities.
While working at AmeriCommerce, I worked primarily on client site implementation, building out designs for clients of the Ecommerce platform, along with building out internal marketing pages.
I joined the first team of forum moderators on Codecademy's platform. I helped students learn the basics of web development, as well as created courses on the platform.
