About Me

I love writing code, it fascinates me. Most of my free time is spent writing code for client websites, personal projects, or just learning something new. I've taught myself PHP, JavaScript, Ruby and many frameworks and libraries for building websites. I'm searching for a position as an Entry Level Web Developer so that my work day can consist of doing what I love.

Hobbies

  • In addition to writing code, I also like tinkering with electronics. I had a mentor briefly who I helped with some interesting burning man projects. Since then I've been playing with the Arduino and familiarizing myself with the principles of circuit design.
  • I really enjoy cooking at home, and I love to experiment. My favorite way to cook is to by taking whatever ingredients I have and inventing something new. I think that 9 times out of 10 it turns out tasting great.
  • I've been playing guitar since I was about thirteen and enjoy making music when I have the free time. I also love playing the mandolin and the banjo. In college I took classes on music theory which I still get use to this day.
