About Me

Hi there 👋 my name is Joe (he/him).

I’m a staff frontend engineer. I’ve built experiences for companies including Disney, Apple, Zillow, Affirm, Adobe, Eventbrite, Johnson & Johnson, Abbott, and Gametime using a broad range of technologies, most notably TypeScript, JavaScript, React, GraphQL, Redux, CSS, and APIs.

Check out a list of my projects, or send me a message using the contact form.

With the web industry constantly evolving, I am passionate about curating new technologies and frameworks to make it easier for developers to decide what best fits their needs. I kicked off my speaking career at SXSW in 2017 and have given talks at React meetups in the San Francisco bay area. I will also be speaking at Reactathon 2018 in San Francisco.

I run a front-end meetup group focused on short talks aimed at helping developers from all experience levels get involved in sharing and learning from one another. We’re called Front End Small Talk. The talks are 7 slides, 7 minutes, with 15 minute Q&A sessions after each talk.

On this blog I write about the lessons I learn in my daily life, mostly having to do with JavaScript, React, CSS, tooling, and anything else front-end web development related.

I have a BS in Information Systems and an MBA from Pepperdine University. I’m also passionate about startups, DX and UX.

When I’m not coding or talking about it on Twitter (aka @joeseifi), you can find me making music (aka Chatterbot), taking and editing photos (aka theJoeSpot), or watching and playing soccer.
