About me

My name is Greg. I am a front-end web developer. I love working with GatsbyJs. I love the UX it delivers out of the box for the end users and DX it provides to me as a developer. I decided to share the love by contributing in this way, sharing my code as starters. I hope somebody find that useful.

For sure it’s not my last Gatsby starter. If you want to be in touch follow my on Twitter @greglobinski
