About me

Hello! I’m BEN RINEHART. Full Stack Developer. I am passionate about marrying well executed design with good clean code.

My love for computers began at a very young age when I got a chance to shadow my dad at his job at a local software company. In 2013 I began doing freelance front-end design of client websites using primarily WordPress. In 2017 I decided to take my skills to the next level and started at The Software Guild. in Akron, OH.

Since 2017 I have been working as a Software Developer for AVI Foodsystems in Warren, OH working on Angular, .Net Core MVC and APIs, & Windows apps.
