Web Developer, Instructor

I'm Matt Jones and I'm a front end web developer and an avid learner. I've been in the web design and development industry for almost 12 years and I'm passionate about quality work done quickly and efficiently. I create tools to improve workflow and help companies and developers learn emerging technologies to stay ahead of the curve.

I specialize in front end development technologies including HTML5, CSS, Javascript, LESS, SASS, jQuery, Bootstrap, Grunt, AngularJS, and more.

As a web developer I've worked with organizations of all sizes from small agencies to international nonprofits. Currently I work for an ad agency in Phoenix, Arizona called RIESTER.
