Jack Rugile

Front End Developer

The web moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

I'm a front end web and game developer with professional experience in the agency realm. My ambition is to create interactive experiences that bring people joy and solve problems. I take pride in my work and want to leave the web better than I found it. I'm looking to collaborate with a team of innovative professionals who are dedicated to their craft.
