Mike Haugland

UI & JavaScript Engineer

Why Mike?

Hi, I'm Mike! I live in Montreal, Canada. I like to create amazing user experiences. I'm proficient in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and experienced with several popular frameworks. While I specialize in front end and UI work, I'm not afraid of jumping in to help in middleware and backend.

I'm passionate about learning new technologies, mentoring those around me, and committing to an ever-increasing level of quality. I value effective communication, team collaboration, and knowledge sharing.
