I am a 12,645 day old graphic artist and front-end developer.
Ahoy! I’m Jason Skinner and this is one of my many online playgrounds.
Being creative while concentrating on the big picture of new technologies, concepts and user interaction is so rewarding. I’ve been crafting web creations since the late ’90s, with my roots planted in both graphic design and web development. So I see both sides of the online spectrum.
I attended Ouachita Baptist University with every attention of being a cardiovascular surgeon, yet after a year and a half of taking chemistry, anatomy, biology and lab classes, I switched my majors to graphic design, mass communication and speech communication. I wanted to be a graphic designer because they get all the ladies. Right?
In August of 2013, I moved back to St. Louis for a typical ad agency. That atmosphere wasn’t for me so in March of 2014 I accepted a job working for Integrity as a Lead Developer/Designer. I took an opportunity to move back to Arkansas in late 2015 as a Director of Operations. As of right now, I am looking for a job. I do some freelance projects, but be warned that I turn down most.
When I’m not perfecting pixels or crunching code, you can usually find me playing guitar, looking at watches, hunting, hitting golf balls, playing video games or building guitar pedals and amps.
Here are a couple more facts:
Unlike everyone else I know, I don’t drink coffee or anything with caffeine. Recently, I have started drinking decaf coffee and hot tea.
- Playing guitar calms and focuses me.
- I only eat with plastic silverware.
- Do you think cyborgs are cool? Well, I am one. I have a pacemaker.
