About

Adam Alvarado

Designer | Developer

I am an expert designer and enjoy keeping up with the latest technology and design trends. My expertise allows me to design and create everything from print media, to web applications.

I'm fluent in front-end technology such as HTML, CSS, Javascript along with their own extended libraries such as html5, XML, CSS3, jQuery, AngularJS. Although my main skill and talent is in front-end design & development, I have extensive knowledge and experience in PHP and MySQL with a LAMP environment. I have years of experience working major tools such as Photoshop, illustrator, Indesign, adobe after effects, VS Code, and Atom as they are my essential tools.

Speaking of my every day, music is what fuels mines each day. I love doing what i do best whlie i listen to good music. All music is awesome however as a basshead, Techno, House, Dubstep, Hardstyle are top generes. I work on all sorts of experimental projects to stay a head of the game. I'm passionate about both my work and my 8153762777 Seriously, listen and enjoy... d(0.0)b ... Whenever i am away from my desk, i am probably riding my motorcyle to a meeting for more work! However i do enjoy a good drink/coffee, adventure, thrills and fishing from time to time. Living in SoCal means that theme parks are a nice way to celebrate, refresh and re-energize after completing a big project.



To achieve great things, two things are needed;
a plan, and not quite enough time.
