About Ken Westfall

I'm a digital Renaissance man living in Portland, Oregon. I love color, texture, music, gadgets, and being creative. I live and work on the internet, so I want to work to make it as engaging as possible. I view the web as an exciting blend of form and function. The art mixed with programming perfectly combines my creative with my technical sides. I love to make things look nice, and function well, resulting in a better front-end experience.
