First things first, I'm Charles and I’m a front-end developer at Zipwhip. At Zipwhip, I work on developing tools for businesses to lower the barrier of entry to connect with their clients. Formerly I was at Onvia, I worked with an amazing team on building a new platform for businesses to connect with governments.

I focus on building things for the web: client-side applications, modular front-end systems and rapid prototyping. There isn't an end to the amount of hours I could spend talking about typography, how we write code, and trying to get to the bottom of things. Above any new thing I run into, I believe users need to remain the reason we build things and that the web can provide the most ubiquitous platform for delivering their experience.

Right now I'm giving most of whatever attention I have to two projects I'm working on called Downwrite and Mercury, while learning more about Node.js. Other than that, you can usually find me losing it on Twitter or starring too many things on GitHub. My partner and I live in Tacoma, WA, where we're usually spending all our money on books.
