My Story

Work Life

My name is William Gwillim Dos Santos. I know - Gwillim is a "funny" sounding name, but I promise it's real. I was born and raised in Southern California. While I was growing up, I showed a lot of interest in art; which more than likely led me to where I am today.

I started out specifically working on t-shirt graphics at a local print shop. From there, I began to discover what could be done on the web.

After 3 years of studying different web technologies, doing freelance gigs, I found a job with Planning Center as a Front End Designer.

8 years later, I'm still happy and still doing what I love to do at Planning Center. The current frameworks I'm working with are React JS, Ruby on Rails, and Gatbsy (which is what I made this site with).

Personal Life

I've been married to my wife, Ashley dos Santos, for 6 wonderful years. The two of us have been through thick and thin. We have learned a lot and are still learning about one another and life. As cliche as it may sound, she is my reason for my persistence in life.

My wife Ashley and myself in Dingle Ireland.

TL;DR I've been designing since high school. I've learned alot, and I want to keep on learning.
