Rhys Thomas UI/UX Designer & Front End Developer rhysthomas1994@gmail.com

I'm a UI/UX designer & front end developer based in Long Island, NY. I grew up in England and graduated with a degree in Business Management from the University of Sheffield in 2017, before moving to the US in 2018.

I started my career as a project manager for a web implementation team, but I instead found myself fascinated by the project work itself, so I began researching, learning, and developing my passion.
