Hi! I'm Mike England

I love to laugh at my own jokes, drift cars, and build projects with React & JavaScript.

About Me

Currently, I manage a software development team that is focused on developing and maintaining the application and database services at Kinsta.

Career Skills

In April 2022, I was promoted to a Development Team Lead position, which shifted my focus away from coding on a regular basis. Don't worry; I still love working on personal projects and helping out! Here are some of my current skills:

  • Performance Reviews
  • Coaching & Mentoring
  • Team Management & Growth
  • NodeJS
  • JavaScript / TypeScript
  • React
  • Gutenberg

Design Background

I believe it's important to remember where you started, and my journey began as a designer. I spent years in the field, creating everything from branding projects to website concepts. To this day, I apply many design disciplines to create, build, and test applications.

Arduino & Drifting

In my free time, I like to find ways to combine my passion for technology with my love for drifting cars. In one of my recent projects, I made an OBDII reader that connects to my Nissan 350z using an ESP32 microcontroller and bluetooth.
