About me

I am a self taught web developer, expressionist painter and music lover.

My family and I moved to the US when I was 11 years old and I watched my father sell used computers from his booth at the flea market to make ends meet. That's where my fascination with entrepreneurship and technology began.

I grew up in Georgia and studied art and graphic design in college. Since then, I've been a freelancer and have worked countless odd jobs. I've shown my paintings in several art galleries over the years and worked as a studio assistant for well-known designer, Marc Tetro.

In 2018, I taught myself how to code, finished a full stack JavaScript bootcamp and landed my first contract job as a web developer with a law firm called Alston & Bird. Soon after, I added web development to my list of services and started my own one-man agency, Manny Cortez Studios.

I'm currently based in San Diego, California and work with multiple agencies, as a web developer and designer.
