Brandon Shackelford

I enjoy being at the intersection of design and programming. My focus is to build simple, user-focused, web experiences and I do my best to leave things better than I found it. I’m currently exploring and learning as much as I can about Design Systems, React, Swift, SwiftUI, and GraphQL.
