JT Grauke is a gifted communicator with a passion for design.
JT found his way to UI Design by somewhat unconventional means, getting his BFA in Musical Theater. As a professionally trained singer and actor, he has a foundational understanding of what it means to learn a craft. It wasn’t until halfway through college, however, that JT created his first website for himself and realized that UI Design was his true passion.
After completing an online certification from thinkful.com in Front End Web Development, JT took the leap into a user experience design role at a company named Emsi. It was in the 5 years at Emsi that JT cut his teeth as a UI Designer and learned the ins and outs of designing, developing, and shipping products, making websites, and how to make progress through design.
In addition to his full-time work, JT has also freelanced for various start-ups and local businesses. He even started a side business himself, alongside his wife. He has a true desire to bless others through his design work and has a knack for meeting their needs.
JT is married to Kelsey and they have two beautiful boys, Theo and Henry. When he’s not slinging pixels or writing code, JT and his family enjoy traveling, the local farmers market, and working on various home remodeling projects.
