About Me

My name is Kevin Horek and I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I work
as a Senior UX Designer / Front
End Developer. I am 30 years old and have been doing
design and front
end development for over 14 years. I build websites/apps that are
andards compliant, work cross

latest passion has been designing and developing mobile apps for Android and iOS.
