TLDR: I’m Parker Self, a fullstack developer from Philadelphia. I’ve been working with startups for the last 5 years in a variety of roles, building everything from simple E-commerce sites to automated image processing and printing software. I love to build tools that solve hard problems in creative ways.

More on me… I’m super passionate about development, startups, and new technology. From a technical standpoint, I work mostly with Javascript in all of its various forms (Typescript + React being my favorite at the moment). I enjoy abstracting common problems I encounter, and creating and publishing libraries to solve them.

I enjoy taking on new challenges more than anything. This has led to me establishing a diverse background outside of development, which includes the following roles:

  • US Air Force Academy Cadet
  • Royal Yachting Association Commercial Sailboat Captain
  • Temporary Tattoo Company Founder
  • Semi-pro Paintball Player
  • Student at 3 different universities (even graduated one)
  • National Merit Scholar Finalist
  • NCAA Division 1 Lacrosse Player
  • Adult snowboard camp attendee (not kidding, it exists)
  • … and a lot more
