Hey there! I’m Ken.

I build websites and web applications using cool things like React, Netlify, GraphQL, and AWS Lambda.

Here's what I'm up to.

Current Project

Right now I’ve got two main things that I’m working on.

  1. I’m really getting into serverless architecture and combining that with static site generators to see what kind of cool stuff I can make.

    This site is my first exploration into that, and you can see my first experiments on my serverless experiments page. I’m really interested in seeing how far I can go with the static/serverless combo and building both sites and full-fledged applications using things like Gatsby, Netlify, and AWS Lambda.

  2. I’m also in the process of redesigning my website. As you can see, it does not look good. I come from a development background, and design has always been a weak point of mine.

    I’m looking to change that and am redesigning my site by following along with Laura Elizabeth’s Design Fundamentals, which is amazing and highly recommended.

Writing

After every new project/experiment I complete, I write up a little about how I did it and what I learned from it. I also write guides for web developers, and occasionally write about things completely unrelated to design or development that I find interesting.

You can see what I’ve written on my writing page, or subscribe to get an email whenever I write something new by entering your email here or via RSS.
