My name is Kevin Horek and I was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I work as a Creative Director, UX Strategist, Front-End Developer. I have been building for the web since I was 12. I graduated from NAIT's multimedia program, with honors, the University of Alberta web builder program, with honors, and spent a summer studying corporate design at UCLA. I have been doing design and front-end development for over 20 years. I build websites/apps that are standards compliant, work cross-browser, are responsive and gracefully downgrade.
