Jason Gonzales has worked as a musician and an English teacher, but frontend engineering is his passion. He is a self-taught engineer and an obsessive learner and researcher. He's been working on frontends for over seven years, but also does full-stack work and lots of fretting over making sites that have awesome user experiences. This keeps him learning pretty much on a daily basis, which is how he likes it.
