I'm Tanner Thelin, and I'm currently working through the Digital Media Web Design & Development program at UVU. I started my education at BYU (studying computer science), and after moving to New York for my first entry-level job at Greenhouse, I'm back in Utah and continuing my studies at UVU. I'm passionate about creating delightful experiences that feel natural.
Currently, my educational goals are to gain a more comprehensive grasp on the different frameworks & fundamentals behind web development. My goal is to be a designer who can actually build the things I design. Specifically, I'm currently focusing on learning to build simple web tools in React.
I'm currently looking for a position where I can help to evolve software products and learn from more experienced designers & creative directors. I want to gain a better understanding of all parts of the development cycle. I also want to see how someone with my mix of design & light development skillsets can fit within a product development team.
Longer-term, I want to make my mark at a larger company, on products that are used by millions of people. I hope to become a world-class designer & developer, and someday spend my free time building my own products & web tools on the side.
