Hey, 👋🏼
My name is Brad Stemke, I'm a Senior Front End Software Engineer, Web Developer, and Designer with a passion for quality, collaboration, and accessibility.

I am a team player that writes clean efficient code while staying in tune with best practices, and I take an approach to design that keeps the user at the center of every decision. I enjoy teaching others, advocating for accessibility, team culture, and partaking in both the design process and breakdown of complex work for development.

I really enjoy making burgers, in fact I have an occasional burger popup called Free Time Burgers. If I made you a burger back in 2017 to 2018, it was while I was living in Los Angeles and cooking with a burger popup that helped kickstart the burger popup scene that exists in LA today. I've also been lucky enough to support my good friend George Motz and smash Oklahoma Fried Onion Burgers with him at various events over the years.

The rest of my free time is usually spent with my family and friends, out at an estate sale, enjoying breakfast at an old classic diner, or driving somewhere new to explore. Those moments are often documented with my iPhone, Fuji Disposable cameras, or my Chinon Auto 3001 Multifocus.

I'm an archivist of found audio, field recordings, 35mm slides, and other everyday things.

My 35mm slide collection, Can Be Thrown Away, is being curated down to just my favorites, and will have a more permanent home online soon.
