Aloha no, I’m Taylor Ho.

Born and raised in Hawaii (and now living in San Francisco), I am a firm believer that you cannot succeed without aloha.

Back home, it’s the law*. This shines in my front-end work — whether it’s making sure I write code with its future maintainers in mind, or structuring my user-facing architecture with accessibility at the forefront.

I am highly adaptable and driven by learning. If there is a problem, I seek ways to fix it. Whether it takes reading a book or picking up a lesson in a framework I don’t know, I’ve grown to resent embrace the challenges that development can bring.

If you are looking for a designer & user interface developer for contract, feel free to reach out.
