Hello, my name is
Alexander Garcini.

I am a front-end coder
& UX/UI designer.

Ready?
Let's begin.

About

After receiving a BA in biological anthropology from Washington University in St. Louis, I dabbled in improv comedy before returning to my first love: the visual arts.

It wasn't until I attended the Center for Digital Imaging Arts (CDIA) at Boston University that I discovered the world of coding. The rush of a good troubleshooting session. Late nights with nothing but a keyboard, a monitor, and a dream.
I was hooked.

My design philosophy is about creating unique and engaging experiences from the ground up.

I find inspiration in minimalism, modern aesthetics, hip hop and electronic music, as well as nature and wildlife.

Skills

The skill set that I bring to projects includes a strong design background, a problem-solving attitude, creative solutions, good communication, attention to detail, and the ability to take direction.

The tools that I use include:
