THE ONLINE PORTFOLIO OF

NECTALI CASTELLANOS

A FRONT END DEVELOPER & DESIGNER FROM CALIFORNIA


I am a front end web developer born in Los Angeles, California working at Saba Agency in Bakersfield, California. I work as the lead in-house Front-End developer where my priorities are to maintain and update existing websites for our clients. I use both CMS and regular old HTML, CSS, Javascript, etc. to edit these sites. I love to learn and master new technologies. Nothing excites me more than seeing a new effect or technique and studying it until I can mimic and improve it.

I studied Computer Science & Egineering at the University of California, Merced and have always had a passion for art and design growing up. Presenting information in an aesthetically pleasing form will not only benefit the user's experience but will also help retain your message, and that is what I strive for when creating a site. I have a fond enjoyment for minimalistic design but can adapt and execute more vibrant work when the situation calls for it. A strong programing background goes hand in hand with an eye for design, and I use these skills to keep on track with state-of-the-art trends and technologies.

In my free time I'm either spending time with friends, family, playing video games, or walking my dog, R2.
