Hello! I’m Fred Snyder

Developer, designer, and data enthusiast.

πŸ”΅ Back to

Freelance developer with a design background. I love working with data, digital technology, automation, and information. How and why are my favorite questions. Designing tools and contemplating ways to automate or optimize processes are my favorite pastimes.

Since 2012, I have successfully delivered over 150 diverse projects in the fields of design, development, and marketing.
