ABOUT

THE SHORT

I get it, you're a professional, you're in a hurry, you don't have time for the big long winded narrative. I can respect that. Here are my answers in a speed dating format:


  • Your eyes are really beautiful, here's my resume
  • Guitar yes, but I'm good with the whole JAMStack
  • Working out is important, especially building a good backend
  • Kids, one day. I built this educational app for when that happens
  • Sure, here's my email and Twitter
  • Learning: SQL, MongoDB, HTML Canvas, harmonica
  • Hobbies: rock climbing, guitar, coding, tending to my megadog
  • Fears: running out of challenges, velociraptors

THE LONG

I've worn many hats. I've scoured dusty bookshelves for forgotten woodwork techniques, and wrangled hundreds of Korean kids into a classroom in the countryside of Korea. I've yelled 'timberrr!!' falling trees in the Rockies, and 'YES CHEF' at Denver's best restaurant. And now, through a series of twists and turns (and fortuitous disasters), I've found myself happy as a nearly-middle-aged clam in the world of coding.

For 80+ hours each week over the course of seven months, I was either taught, or I self-taught, my frontend fundamentals at Turing School (the only accredited software "boot camp" as of April 2021). In between breaths, I pushed myself to advance my skills in styling (CSS, animations, libraries, yaddayadda), developed a love affair with React(goodbye forever .insertAdjacentHTML(), hellooo .map()), and got my hands dirty building REST APIs with Express.

Since graduating, I've continued self-teaching and building projects from scratch, including this site (writeup coming soon). I'm currently looking to work with a team of people who will push themselves to do their best work, who encourage and support continual growth and learning, and who aren't afraid to have a laugh with others or at themselves.

Questions? Comments? Job offer? Site criticism? HMU as the kids say these days.
