Hi, my name is Benyam Ephrem. I am an Ethiopian-American student, programmer, designer (like a 6.3/10), and internet teacher.

Work

Between the ages of 15-18 I had many sandbox projects where I learned the ropes of programming, the web, and creating things. I still always learn things daily.

I only list those projects which I have a dedication to see them through to their fullest potential, nothing with a half-done intention.

Professional

Education

Computer Science in college is the hardest thing I’ve ever done, not gonna lie. Very theoretical and rigorous. Has made me better at what I do I think.

Skills

I like to code, design, market, and do whatever is necessary to build what needs to be built.

I have daily experience in:

UI Design

Frontend Development

Server Development

Databases

Email Marketing

Designing UI’s (Figma), writing well componentized frontends (React + TypeScript), creating secure RESTful APIs (Node.js + TypeScript), managing databases (PostgreSQL + MongoDB), writing sales emails & sequences, etc.

Books

These are books that have had a very profound life impact on me.
