About Me

I Love Coding

It’s true. I really love coding! There’s nothing more satisfying than discovering an elegant solution to a difficult challenge. My interest in coding was sparked 7 years ago. I taught myself HTML and CSS and began building websites for health care professionals. Soon after, I was diving into JavaScript and PHP. To upgrade my skills, I attended General Assembly’s 3-month Full Stack Web Development Intensive. I study, learn and implement new stuff daily. React, TypScript, Angular v2/v4, and Nodemailer are just a few of the new tools I've picked up since General Assembly.

An Unforgivable Flaw?

When you look at my resume you’ll notice one glaring omission: a 4-year degree. I never had the opportunity to attend a traditional college. But that’s never held me back. When I want to learn something, I figure out where to get the information, dive in and do it. I know that some hiring managers will consider my lack of a degree an unforgivable flaw. I think that’s too bad. Because they’re missing out on one of the most motivated, resourceful workers they’ll ever get.

Family Life

I love coding, but my work takes second place to my family. I have a wife and two boys, an 8 year old and a 10 month old, who are the joys of my life. Together with our two cats, we live in the little town of Fairfax in Marin County, surrounded by trees and wildlife. On weekends and evenings, you can find us enjoying the nearby playgrounds and parks, or getting a cone at our local ice cream shop.

Just for Fun

To keep my mind and body sharp, I train in Shaolin Kung Fu, a rigorous and traditional form of the martial art. I’m also a fan of metal working and blacksmithing, and tinker around from time to time. These activities offer a refreshing counterbalance to the hours spent on the computer.
