Picture of the ever handsome Alex Masson

About Me

Hi there, my name is Alex Masson. Currently, I am a full stack developer working for a couple of startups in the midwest. Some areas I specialize in are creating scalable web apps in React.js, making powerful APIs with Django, building amazing Android apps with the standard Android SDK, and building beautiful, responsive websites. I love building new things that help people live better lives, and change the world for the better. I grew up in the suburbs of Prairie Village, and filled my childhood with memories of the Royals losing, the Chiefs losing, and my dad being angry because of both of those things.
