As you may, or may not, have gathered my name is Justin Coleman. I'm a front-end developer based out of Austin, Texas.
My passion is in bridging the gap between designers and developers. My grasp of design methodologies, coupled with my experience writing front-end code lets me understand both sides and bring the two closer together creating a smoother workflow.
I thoroughly enjoy building mobile-first, responsive websites and applications. I have applied my skills in numerous fields including e-commerce, non-profit, big data and agency work.
