Ever since I got my hands on my first computer (my dad's black and orange screened, suitcased-sized work laptop in the late '80s), I've been creating things with code. From making "Choose your own adventure" games using Goto: statements in qBasic to building virtual reality worlds using Unity3D, I've always had a passion for programming. After gaining valuable experiences in education, content marketing and non-profits, I've built up my skills as a Full Stack Web Developer, pursuing a career I've always wanted to explore. I love learning new programming languages, frameworks, and ways to solve problems, to make cool things through coding.
When I'm not building web apps on my laptop, I might be prototyping a new video game, hiking, brewing gluten-free beer, or traveling with my wife and son.
