Hi, my name is Alex Gohorel. I'm a Philadelphia based web developer and designer.

I love making things.

Some of my earliest memories are of doodling in MacPaint on my dad's black and white Macintosh 128k. In the years since I've been involved in all kinds of creative and technical practices - from web development to animation to sound design, art installations to desktop applications. These days I primarily work in front end web development and graphic design, but I bring with me the accumulated experience of a lifetime of making things.

I Build Stuff With: I'm Learning:
Node.js Redux
React React Hooks
Electron Graphql
Gatsby MongoDB
