I’m Jimmy Smutek

Headshot for Jimmy Smutek

I’m lead web developer at Ainsley & Company, a marketing and advertising agency in Baltimore, Maryland.

I studied graphic design at CCBC, and corporate communication at the University of Baltimore.  My background started in design, and I got my start working part-time for the Baltimore nonprofit, Baltimore Art and Music Project, where my main focus was print collateral.

In 2006, my focus turned to the screen printed apparel and promotional products industry, where I worked with small business owners to larger clients such as M&T Bank.

My love of learning and technology eventually led me into web design, and finally to full time web development, which I have found to be the perfect fit for me.

I spent some time at a small agency in Towson and eventually launched a freelance business in 2013, where I was one half of Smutek Creative, along with my lovely wife, Jennifer Smutek. Jennifer is an incredibly talented wedding, portrait, and event photographer.

Today I’m full time at Ainsley, where I work primarily with WordPress, implementing custom web solutions for small businesses and organizations. I couldn’t be happier.

I’m an old school skateboarding dad. I love drum machines and synths, learning new things, and hanging with my family. One day I plan to write a better bio, but I’m in a pinch today. 🙂

This is my web development blog. I maintain my personal blog at jimmysmutek.com if you’d like to check it out.
