I'm Arron Mabrey, a twenty-nine year old full-stack software developer. Husband to a fun, happy wife. Father of 2 (almost 3) playful children.
I try to live life doing what is right. To be as open and honest as I can.
I love craftsmanship. I love listening to people excitedly describe their obsession whether it be woodworking, the perfect cup of coffee or making knives.
I've had the good fortune of working alongside some of the most talented folks I've ever meet. Together we've made and shipped great things daily.

I bet at 12 years old this kid couldn't be bothered to wear headphones while trying to listen to hip music on his Compact Disc Player. And he seems ambitious enough to take a handful of money into Radio Shack and walk-out with the needed book, equipment and eletronic components to build from scratch his own 9-volt powered personal stereo amplifier.
It's a silly story no question about it; but I believe it eloquently describes the kind of person I am and how I go about the problems I aim to solve.
You see I love learning; expanding myself and my experiences, ultimately for the sake of sharing with others.
When I set my mind on something, I find a way to make it work.
Ask anyone who knows me. My number one conversation starter growing up and still to this day is — “Hey look what I just figured out!”
In summary, whether it's in the form of building 9-volt amplifiers, capturing imagery for top brands, or shipping code to hundreds of thousands of users daily. …I love making things.
