Keith Kurak

Developer Success Engineer
Expo

Keith is the Developer Success Manager at Expo, helping fellow mobile developers build amazing React Native apps in record time. From the time he made a Dragon Quest knockoff on his TI-83 during study hall in high school, he can't remember not being interested in building for the small screen. When he's not slinging ~~JavaScript~~ TypeScript, you might find Keith zipping through busy Cleveland streets on his bicycle, building a computer case out of Lego, or in the kitchen breaking new ground in the field of alternative omelette fillings.
