Front-End Developer from Austin, Texas


David Menendez

My Name is David Menendez and I am a professional Front-End developer. I am originally from South Florida and a graduate of Florida State University with a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology.

I currently live in Austin, Texas and work as a Software Developer for IBM. For the past several years I have been working as a Front-End developer on several IBM Cloud projects primarily working on building user interfaces.

I'm currently working on a side project entitled Got'Em. When I'm not coding I spend a lot of free time being active outdoors, learning photography, and creating music.


Feel free to take my resume with you. Be sure to keep it somewhere safe!
