— Who I Am
Howdy, my name is Sazzad. I am a creative thinker and 'tinkerer' who crafts next generation of web and mobile tools. Co-creator of few greats such as BeeBack, the FWPolice, BootAdmin, DevKit, Fleech Media and more.
Professionally, I work with a family of artsy hipster, skilled nerds and sassy marketers who dedicate their time to craft and promote cool tools and services on the web. Ok fine, I'm a nerdy hipster too. That's right, I'm a pet loving, coffee drinking, tech savvy nerd. I just happened to be pretty good at coding, designing and understanding the users' needs.
As a UI/UX designer and a front-end developer, I wear multiple hats. Usually, I’m involved with managing multiple projects, consulting on branding, communicating with design and dev teams, wireframes, and idea creation. But the most common role is to be the bridge between designers and developers.
