Who I am

Welcome to my website! My name is Tyler and I build stuff on the internet.

Besides being a full stack web developer and nerd, I ride bikes, fix bikes, surf, look at adorable dog pictures, and watch football and basketball. This little hub highlights all the different parts of my life in a clean and concise fashion.

I built this website as lightweight as possible with minimal design with as little js and css as possible. I tried to remove as much bloat as possible, however, I do use jQuery (and React/Redux for my demo projects).

The Internet is already filled with over the top websites with flashy banners and overdone javascript packages and it sure doesn't need another bandwidth sucking site. Your router thanks you for visiting this website.

I designed this site to be as minimalistic as possible, I decided to keep a simple and black and white theme. If you haven't noticed, I have added a light and dark mode button to the footer and the main landing page! This is to improve readability and focus. I have added a short lived cookie on this site that let's you persist the dark theme across the whole site.

This website is a fully static website built on Jekyll and hosted on Github Pages. While I occassionally use api's from other websites, everything else was built by me from scratch.

Thanks for your time!
