Welcome to griffy.dev, my name is Nathan. I am a Software Developer, with a primary focus of creating full stack web applications. I am from and have lived in Arizona my entire life. I went to college at Arizona State University to study business, receiving a degree in Marketing. I spent several years learning on the job to become a Web Developer. I currently work for Showit Inc.


I think life is about learning and becoming something more than you are. That as we learn we grow, that as knowledge is shared we change the world. I believe people are most valuable amazing thing on Earth and they have the power to change everything for the better. When we apply small acts of kindness to this world we beat back cynicism and fear to unlock the potential in ourselves and others.


My life is filled with many interests. First and foremost is my family. My wife and I are parents to four kids. We believe in fostering and adoption as a way to make the world a better place. We spend a lot of time investing in our home, children and community to support fostering and adoption.

I also enjoy nature and animals. I have an Australian Cattle Dog which I train and playing catch with. I enjoy fly fishing and being in the woods.

Coding Principles

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time.”
    ~ Thomas Edison

“Journey before destination. There are several ways to achieve a goal. Failure is preferable to winning through unjust means. Protecting ten innocents is not worth killing one. In the end, all men die. How you lived will be far more important to the Almighty than what you accomplished.”
    ~ Brandon Sanderson, The Way of Kings

"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
    ~ Albert Einstein
