About

Hi!

My name is Jake. I’m a software developer based out of Kearney, Nebraska. I work part time at a local web development agency and, for the past two years, I’ve been working on building up my own web development business, Modinfinity.

I’m a developer who designs

I’ve been working as a software developer for most of a decade now. While going to college, I got a job as mobile app developer (Android) at the company I work at now. Before getting the job, I was only focused on code and the thought of design or user experience had never crossed my mind.

That quickly changed.

I found that building apps required more than good code and best practices, but also good design and user experience. Since we were a small company, some of that responsibility fell on me and I found a big part of me being fulfilled.

Now, I primarily work in web development, but I still find the same fulfillment. Building and designing websites and web applications has become a passion of mine. I hope I can continue down this path as long as possible.

I love to spend time outdoors

Camping and hiking has been my favorite thing to discover in my twenties. I try to get a few long weekends in every year and disconnect from everything. Some of my favorite places have been the Black Hills, Nebraska National Forest (ya, we have one in Nebraska), and Indian Cave State Park.

I love animals

Since I was a kid, I’ve loved animals. One of my favorite jobs was in college when I worked at a vet clinic as a caretaker.

My girlfriend has a dog, Stella. We recently adopted a cat together, named Albus:
