Portfolio First Draft
A learning project focused on leveling-up with:
- Jquery DOM traversal and manipulation.
- The model/view/controller software architecture pattern.
- Principles of clean, DRY, self-documenting code.
- Mobile-first responsive design.
- HTML5 Canvas API.
- CSS animations.

This was my first attempt at creating a "professional" web development portfolio, but it came a little too soon in my career. While working on this site, the question I always kept at the front of my mind was "What if it was the year 3017, and Geocities came back, and there was a neighborhood called The Bowery?". That was pretty much the inspiration behind the whole project. I'm very proud of some of the cool, expressive stuff that is going on here, but I;ve been told more than once that it is "a little much". A lot of love went into this website, and it will always be one of my favorites.
Your contributions are very welcome! The best thing you could possibly do is break this code and then let me know about it. Contact me or open an issue to discuss potential changes/additions.
