About

My name is Jonny Goodwin. I’m a 24-year old software engineer, marketer, and entrepreneur from Baltimore, MD.

Software Development

My expertise and interest is in front-end technologies. Recently, I’ve been enjoying working in ReactJS. My server-side skills are not nearly as strong, but I do have a desire to learn Node or GoLang in the near future.

Marketing

Online marketing is essential to growing your business. I have grown sites from 0 to 200,000 views in a matter of weeks. I have also grown multiple email lists from 0 to 1,000 subscribers, and managed email lists of over 1,000,000 subscribers. I am a certified Google Adwords partner.

Entrepreneurship

I want to make profitable things that benefit other people and have a positive impact on their lives. I have plenty of ideas for how to do this, I just need to sit down and implement some of them. An idea is worth nothing, action is.

Spare Time

When I’m not coding, marketing, or working on my latest idea, I enjoy:

  • hanging out with friends and occassionally going out to the bars.
  • Driving back and forth from PA to MD, visiting and catching up with friends.
  • Wrestling. I am an assistant coach for a high school team. Right now I help out at the club two days a week. In a few short months, I’ll be heading into practice 6 days a week, and will be cutting out of work around 2pm.
