Hi. My name is
Thor Hanks

I'm a Designer

I am passionate about solid UI/UX design. I believe visual appeal, usability, and functionality are equally important. I also jump at the chance to take on visual and web design.

I'm a Developer

I have a traditional back-end (C#, SQL) education with strong front-end (JS, CSS, HTML) skills. I love to tackle complex, performance critical web development.

about

Starting with a standard Software Engineering education, over the years as an obsessive passion I have developed serious front-end code and design skills. This allows me to contribute in a wide variety of areas making me broadly useful no matter what the need.

I believe visual appeal, usability, and functionality are equally important. I have a constant focus on pushing skills in new directions.

Amarillo College


2002-2005 / Amarillo, TX
GPA: 4.0/4.0
A fantastic experience in TX earning an Associate degree in Engineering Computer Science. I recieved the Outstanding Comp. Sci. Major of the Year award 2 of my 3 years attending.

Montana Tech


2005-2008 / Butte, MT
GPA: 3.86/4.0
A wonderful school where I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Software Engineering When I graduated I was honored to recieve the Outstanding Achievement in Comp. Sci. award. I was also fortunate to become 1 of 30 nationwide Micron Scholars.

Micron Internship


May 2007 - Aug 2007 / Boise, ID
Software Development Intern
A great introduction to software development in the real world. I translated, tested, and debugged speed critical logging software from Perl to C#. I was required to quickly get up to speed with 4 new languages and a proprietary client/server framework.

Asset Management International


Aug 2008 - Jan 2009 / Seattle, WA
Software Developer
My first full developer job. I developed and maintained a combined C#/ASP.NET/Windows CE inventory bar code web/app platform. It required maintaining a heavily object oriented .NET architecture.

ITI Internet Services


Feb 2009 - Nov 2010 / Tacoma, WA
Software Developer
At this small shop I designed a replacement e-payment transaction processor to replace the existing system. I also had to maintain the undocumented legacy system built in VB 6.0. I was able to define company software development best practices and process and redesign/build replacements for all five company product websites and logos.

Mercent Inc.


Dec 2010 - Jan 2015 / Seattle, WA
Senior Software Developer / UI/UX Architect
Over the years I took on several roles. Starting off as a back-end developer and moving to a primary front-end role. I developed complex front-end interactive web application components, guided and designed UI/UX of new features, and wrote company wide front-end engineering guidelines, best practices, and style guides.

CommerceHub


Jan 2015 - Present / Seattle, WA
UI/UX Architect
After Mercent was acquired by CommerceHub I stayed on helping to harmonize the UI across all products. I continued to develop complex front-end components and features. I worked across teams helping each to design and implement the front-end features.
I have worked with very few developers in my career that have had the natural eye and instinct for solid, user-centered design and development that Thor brings to the table.

Photography

Check out my best pics

An obsessive and expensive hobby. Going from zero knowledge to pretty decent pictures has been extremely rewarding.

Abstract Composition

Because everybody has to have a blog right? Random thoughts about replica watch life, javascript, and everything else.

Bug Fu Logo

Something I created as part of a side project started with a friend. The project unfortunately never replica watches for men took off but I've always been proud of the logo.
