Jeff cut his teeth in the ANSI art scene of the BBS heyday before the popularity of the internet. He fondly recalls the sound of modems handshaking. He first got involved with programming in the BBS modification scene of the late nineties. Later he would go on to study software development in college, where he developed a love of beautiful software and intuitive interfaces. During college, Jeff worked in the dental software industry, supporting UNIX serial networks. In 2006 he became a systems architect working primarily with internal, home-grown web apps for workforce management. In this role, Jeff developed a love for JavaScript and CSS, quickly becoming the go-to architect for other developers looking to improve their front-end designs and simplify user interactions.
