Kyle Cesmat

I am a software person who works with teams large & small to solve technical problems on the web. At Formidable I focus primarily on front-end expierences, optimizing application performance, building sustainable components & patterns for teams, and trying not to break too many things along the way!

Away from the screen I like to travel, try my hand at cooking new foods, and find a great trail to hike with my pup Levi.
