Sipping coffee in Schaffhausen, Dec. 2019

Hello. I'm Velardo.

I am a Front-End Developer UX Engineer working for Hooray Agency in sunny Irvine, California. Indeed, my title is Sr Front-End Developer, although the term has morphed over the years and I feel compelled to take a side—which reminds me: I need new business cards. My recent projects are mainly in the hospitality industry, but my work experience began in entertainment at and then House of Blues in Hollywood (2001 - 2006).

When I'm not code-monkeying around you can find me strumming my guitar, hunting fresh powder on my snowboard, or planning my next trip. I have a Master's Degree in Philosophy and I hope to, one day, publish a book that will change the way we see religion for the better.
