Hi there, I’m Rogin.

I’m a theatre-artist turned front-end web developer. I grew up and currently live in the Boston-area where I proudly work for Wayfair.

I've been building websites for about 5 years when I started scrapping together code for my own sites. With a background in designing and building for the stage, I develop sites with user experience in mind. When I'm not coding, I enjoy lifting heavy weight at the gym, seeing and creating theater, and tossing around a frisbee.

Current Position

I’m a front-end web developer with a soft spot for typography and responsive design.

I currently work for Wayfair in Boston, MA as a Front-end Engineer. It is one of the world's largest online destinations for the home.

Responsibilities

Developing the frontend framework for intranet and extranet tools, including building and extending Tungsten components. Supporting special storefront projects. Collaborating with full-stack engineers and creative team.

Personal Stuff

I've always been fascinated by stories. Stories offer a portal into other worlds and experiences than our own. They challenge what we know and take for granted, and make us consider who we are and who we want to be.

I like to think of myself as a story-teller first. Scenery, light, wood, and pixels are all different tools I use to convey meaning and narrative (I write sometimes, too!). If I'm not making something, I'm probably consuming stories via podcasts, movies, music, visual art, or theater (obviously).
