Resume

My name is Kevin McKernan, and I‘m a Web Developer from Denver, CO. Building my first website at the age of 12 piqued my curiosity, and I have worked on turning that hobby into a career ever since.

As a technical leader and developer, I have built themes, plugins, and websites as solutions for both client and personal projects. I find that satisfying projects involve new technical challenges to solve, whether working independently or with other developers.
