Hi, I'm Taylor Sturtz
javascript junky ~ go is cool too! / soccer hooligan / daddy shark

I'm a self-taught software engineer from Irvine, CA with a background in design. I write empathetic code and build full-stack applications that people connect with directly. Regardless of the platform, solving difficult problems and building smooth user experiences is my jam.

I currently work full-time as a Software Developer pioneering front-end web projects at Ytel, a telecommunications API platform in Foothill Ranch, California.
