Benjamin Pincus

Web Developer • UX Designer

I have recently graduated from Georgia Tech with an MS in Digital Media (May 2014). I have been involved in every part of the production process--from concept to completion. I'm hardworking, dedicated, naturally intuitive, and a quick learner. I've done full stack web development (though I still prefer the front-end), graphic design, UX, and television production. I like clean design and clean code.
