Hi, my name is Ian Deans. I'm a technologist currently wearing the hat of web developer living the San Francisco Bay Area. I have a passion for creating and learning. And if I can learn while I create, all the better.

  I don't come from a traditional background with a formal education, but instead have spent the entirety of my life tinkering with technology and learning from fixing (and breaking) computers or software. And thanks to a program called Learner's Guild, I have also acquired a solid foundation in computer science as well as experience coding and building in team with other developers on live applications.
