A closer look into some stuff I've done
Porunga - Another React UI Library
A React UI library that hopes to deliver an easy to use component API that can be easily extendable to fit the functional and design needs for multiple platforms and audiences.
- TypeScript - Strong typing with props
- Style Guidist - Self documentation from Types and JSDocs

- Single Theme Config - Source of truth for pallete, sizes, spaces, etc
- Small Bundle Size - appoximating so far at 8kb
When my close friend of mine and I decided to wonder into the world of podcasting, we wanted a website to help out with some web presence. So we decided to build a small website for some of our content. We built the website using GatsbyJS, TailwindCSS, and Emotion/styled. The site also consumes data from our podcast hosting at PodBean using their API and loads it into Gatsby's GraphQL data layer on build time.
Let's Take a Look At CSS in JS with React - 2019 Series
A three part series of blog posts published to dev of me going through various methods of CSS in JS in React, along with my personal takes on them. I went through with inline styling, ReactJSS, and Styled Components. I had a great time writing these posts and the engagements that came with it!
Gatsby Bomb PWA
That's right, I have 2 different projects using Giantbomb's API. I'm a fan of the site, and wanted to expand on my mirco app. Regular Bomb Shows is a PWA powered by GatsbyJS. It's a serverless netflix-like app using the Giant Bomb API as a source of data. This Gatsby App uses React, Emotion Styled, and GraphQL. The Giantbomb website underwent a redesign, implementing a Show / Season / Episode like structure to their content. As a fan of the site and as a developer, I really liked their redesign and was inspired to see what I could make with this new video structure and their API.
Smaller Bomb is a single page application made with Node, React, and Flex box, using the Giant Bomb API to search for videos and render their embedded video player. I have been a fan of the site for a long time and decided to play with their API.
Phil Tietjen Portfolio
Yes I'm using my own portfolio site that you're currently on as a project and you can't stop me. This was something I would start to make, and scrap it from being either too ambitious, or not quite finding the right implementation of a CMS. I then finally found a good compromise!
ThunderCats Full Page Theme
This is admitedly, pretty dumb. When i first found out about netlify's manual drag n drop deploys, I made a bunch of dumb web pages to send to people for giggles. This is one of them.
WARNING: This is an autoplaying fullscreen video with audio, it also doesn't work on mobile :(. There's also a change that the internet hates my fun and this might not work at all!
