Hi! I'm Muir, and I'm a web developer in Sacramento, CA.
When I was in Junior High I made my first video game, called "Murchey the Frogman",
and I sold a whopping 5 copies... to my grandpa... on 3.5" floppy disks.
My senior year of high school I got out of school at lunch each day to take programming classes (C, C++) at
the university, and started creating websites for local businesses.
In college (UCSD) I took programming courses as electives (Java, Data Structures, etc.), but
ultimately decided to get my Bachelor's in Mathematics.
After college I pursued things I loved that gave me life and perspective.
I travelled to 12 different countries (Nepal, Ethiopia, China, India, Malta, etc.), I was the director of a
high school youth group for four years, I met the love of my life and we had a son together, and I turned
my photography hobby into a full-time career (www.muiradamsphotography.com).
During that time I found myself repeatedly coming back to my interest in programming. I experimented
with everything from Flash to Objective C and Swift, but ultimately fell in love with
decided I wanted to do web development full time and accepted an offer to work at
SymSoft Solutions. Over the last two years I've created web apps in Angular and React, helped
launch a Food Truck App, rebuilt government websites used by millions of people, become an expert
in web accessibility, learned the wonderful (and sometimes frustrating) world of Drupal, and worked as
part of an Agile team to create excellent user experiences and beautiful websites for the likes of SMUD, Rabobank,
California Energy Commission, and others.
I find myself quite fortunate to have a career that's both fun and challenging -
where every day I have the opportunity to learn new things and work with a team to find creative solutions to new problems.
Now that I've shared a little about myself, I'd love to share a little of what I've been working on.
Please keep reading to find links to some of my recent projects at SymSoft, as well
as the web apps and open-source code I've written for fun. I'm an open book if you have any questions.
