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. 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.
