About me

Hello, I'm John Nguyen, a designer and developer of the interwebs and an occasional chef. Currently I work as a Front-end Developer at Active Ingredients beautifully located just north of San Francisco, CA.

I strive to create engaging experiences through simple, honest design.

Beyond my passion for coding, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful wife exploring her profession of dance, gaining knowledge with my green thumb, or whipping up umami recipes in our kitchen for our first cookbook.

I’m available to collaborate on great products starting January 2015.
