Hi, I'm Tucker. I'm a Web Engineer @ StockX living in Boston, MA and a graduate of Union College (NY). I'm incredibly passionate about web applications & UI/UX design - I design with intent and code with precision. I maintain a technical blog and write articles each month covering React.js development topics that I find particularly interesting alongside my own implementation examples, be sure to check out my latest post here

While I am a proud developer at heart, I have a strong enthusiasm for drawing up visually memorable and elegant user experiences on the web. Front end development is my passion and I am particularly avid about pure css interactions and animations. Check out my work on Codepen or Dribbble.
Under the hood of any great front end interface are thoroughly built backend functionalities. Database schemas, API development and routing, middeware, and unit tests are the backbone of a successful website or application. As a strong Python advocate Flask is my go-to framework for creating web APIs.
Mobile applications are further becoming an integral part of our daily lives. Creating iOS and Android applications (shoutout to React Native) is another passion of mine. Checkout my latest work in helping develop Neutrogena Skin360
At the end of the day, creating and developing software is more than just a hobby for me. I have an insatiable desire to develop quality code that promotes usability and efficiency while being visually exciting. Make sure to check back in soon for updated projects of mine!
I enjoy writing about various React.js related topics in my free time. Be sure to check out my main blog page here
