Geek of all Trades

Gian Faye Paguirigan

I have over 10 years of working experience as a web developer mainly focusing in frontend development but have worn several hats over the years when I did automated QA testing, user experience design, content management, copywriting, graphic design, video editing, and project management.

You might be wondering if my tagline comes from the figure of speech, "Jack of All Trades, Master of None." That can be half true. There is an open discussion as to whether a generalist is better than a specialist, or the other way around. You can weigh in the pros and cons but it always falls back to the situation when one can be more efficient than the other. My end goal has always been being both. It can be done. How? Being able to switch between seeing things in micro versus macro. One can focus on the finer details while still being able to visualize the bigger picture — directing motion and all its tiny moving parts. ◼


My current expertise is on front-end development and user experience design. If you would read this article: The Front End Engineering Spectrum - The Three Generic Types of Front End Engineers → I'd be The Core – heading towards being full-stack.

My approach to design is mainly intuitive but I'm familiar with most of the textbook concepts such as the Gestalt principles and common design patterns.

My current snack is JAM (Javascript, APIs, Markups) mainly using React.js and messing up with components and states. This site is built with GatsbyJS, a React.js framework, coupled with GraphQL.

Aside from web technologies, I am very interested in augmented reality, cybersecurity, the maker culture, and the internet of things. If I'm not tinkering stuff on the internet, I'd probably be tinkering things IRL.

Everything Else.
