Hi there, my name is Alex, known colloquially online as Xhynk (pronounced “zinc“).
I’ve been a web developer since 2010 when I started designing HTML only Golf Resort websites. My background was in Graphic Design and I’d only made a single HTML webpage in Notepad up until that point. Shortly thereafter, a small web design firm called Third River Marketing gave me a call, looking for a web designer, so I leaped at the opportunity. After roughly a year, I realized solely designing websites wasn’t cutting it for our company, or myself, so I began teaching myself the ins and outs of WordPress development and fell in love with it. That’s when I made the transition to a full-stack developer. Now I can proudly say I’ve reached hundreds of thousands of users on Stack Exchange, aided hundreds of businesses with SaaS solutions, released multiple public WordPress plugins, and much more.
I also stream Destiny 2 on Twitch.tv and have built a community of a few thousand people, across a handful of places online where we promote mental health, body positivity, and anti-toxicity in online gaming.
