About Me

Welcome to ClintMilner.com. I’m Clint Milner and most people would say that Clint Rocks! Other people probably say that those people are too optimistic. Anyway, I’m a Colorado boy that has traveled the world and ended up with my hot wifey and beautiful baby girl in Buckinghamshire, England.

I'm a passionate Front End developer working my way down the stack. You'll find JavaScript, jQuery, Underscore.js, Node.js, HTML, CSS/LESS, Git, Java, and PostgreSQL in my FE toolbox with a bit of Adobe Creative Cloud, IntelliJ, 0xDBE mixed in for good measure.

I also enjoy taking and editing photos. Landscapes, Nature, Time Lapse, Macro, Wide Angle, Long Exposure, and HDR photography combined with shutter speed experiments can be found on the memory cards of my Canon 60D or my iPhone 6.
