Experienced in a wide variety of JavaScript frameworks, he is passionate about front-end architecture, code test coverage, and sweating the details. An active member in the JavaScript community, Jonny has authored or contributed to numerous open-source projects. He’s easily distracted by a game of ultimate frisbee, homebrewing delicious IPAs and stouts, and trying to keep up with his dog and two young kids.
