To be honest, I kind of fell into this whole building websites thing by accident...
When I was in college, I hastily agreed to build a website for a local business. Only having a rudimentary knowledge of HTML & CSS, this proved to be quite the learning experience over the coming months. Somehow, I managed to successfully deliver the website (while getting paid!) and from there on out I was hooked.
Soon after that I created flyers and went door-to-door at every business in town. I managed to pick up a few clients and quit my minimum wage job at the laundromat.
By the time I graduated college, I had a handful of websites that I was able to show prospective employers, and landed a job before graduating.
Throughout the first few years of my career I worked at a few agencies, started posting work on Dribbble, and took on a healthy bit of side work.
By 2016 the side work had grown into more than I could realistically keep up with. At that point my wife suggested I go all in and give freelancing a try.
Soon after starting freelancing, I realized there was a lot of work out there. I slowly started to get more work and brought on a contractor. Then another, and then 5 all at once. From there it's felt like a rocketship at UX Cabin and we haven't looked back!
