Vincent Trivett


I am a former journalist, now a full-stack web developer with about a year of experience coding. I work with Ruby on Rails, JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5, CSS3, Sass, CoffeeScript, and other programming languages and frameworks. I am a proud graduate of General Assembly's Web Development Immersive program, where I received 12 weeks of full-time instruction in front and back-end development and agile methodologies. I am always eager to learn more.

Before I dove into programming, I was a freelance writer. My work has appeared in numerous outlets including Skift, Business Insider, Quartz, City Limits Magazine, The Atlantic Business, WNYC, MSN Money, MarketWatch Minyanville, Post Road Magazine, The L Magazine, and DNAinfo.

I lived in Japan for over three years, where I taught in the public junior high schools in Yokohama. While I was there I helped start Yokohama Seasider, Koe, and Japan Beer Times, three culture magazines. I wrote, reported, took photos, and translated for those publications. I am passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test at level 2. I still translate Japanese news broadcasts for American audiences on a freelance basis.
