Hi, I'm Nikhil

I’m a developer with a passion for good design and UX.

I love making things that are a pleasure to use while solving interesting business problems.

My Work

Here is a selection of my recent work and projects.

Quick Summary

I love solving business problems using code. I love it so much that I decided to walk away from an 8+ year career in digital marketing to become a web developer.

In the past year, I've dedicated all my spare time to obsessively learning new skills and I don't plan on stopping.

Technologies I've been focusing on:

CSS 3

CSS Flexbox

CSS Grid

JavaScript (ES6)

SASS

React

Git

Gulp

Webpack
