Ron Gruesbeck

Hi there, I'm a software developer strongest with Node.js and Front-End JavaScript. In 2012 I co-founded a small design/tech agency. After that, I continued to work with existing and new clients while pursuing my interests as a professional musician. In my spare time I enjoy working on personal projects. One example of this is Multibook. A webapp which makes it easy to find sheet music for over 500 jazz standards — built with React and IPFS.
