Waldo Broodryk Portrait

Hi, I'm Waldo Broodryk

I serve the team at Webflow. I'm a web designer and lover of animating all things on the web. I enjoy writing about my thoughts on web design, going hiking, snowboarding, surfing, swimming, making YouTube videos, taking pictures of our doggo, and hanging out with friends and family.

Sometimes I share things on Twitter

This is likely the easiest place to get ahold of me. Just Tweet at me or send me a DM onย Twitter if you'd like to connect.

.@CodePen I just realized that my "Projects" likely don't qualify for "CodePen Challenges" because they're projects ๐Ÿ™ˆ Tried out converting a project โžž Pen (via copy & pasting) just now, and it wasn't too bad. https://t.co/IVU62JpB8i
