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.
Coinigy hired me as their lead frontend developer dedicated to improving the user experience of the cryptocurrency portfolio management platform.
FSG Energy hired me as a contractor to lead the frontend development of their Enterprise IoT management and diagnostic 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.
