Peter Gubernat Perfecting the web

Though I am a front-end developer by day, I have put pen to paper during a design process, been completely lost in a full stack environment, and often wear the entrepreneurship hat.

I am an alumnus of The Art Institues of Chicago multimedia and web development program, graduating with a Bachelors of Science with a major in Media Arts. Currently residing in Downers Grove, IL.

I want to be involved in projects that I can be proud of, join an amazing team, and advance my design and development career. Take some time to look at my work, credentials, and if you're interested in helping me make this happen, let's get in touch.
