My development start

My passion for software development ignited in a high school class and has been a guiding light ever since. I learned on a positively ancient program called Alice if you can believe it.

Regardless of the strange start, the initial spark led me to pursue computer science at the collegiate level and has paved the way for a fulfilling career in the field.

My brief career

My programming expertise is a tapestry woven from a rich variety of languages and frameworks, reflecting my versatility and adaptability in the ever-evolving landscape of software development. As a developer, I have delved deeply into Java, Python, C, C++, JavaScript, and Haskell, each language adding a unique dimension to my coding repertoire.

My proficiency extends to an array of frontend frameworks, including React, Angular, Vue, and Django, where I have adeptly crafted engaging and responsive user interfaces.

In the realm of backend development, I have dabbled with the Express and Spring Boot frameworks, enabling me to architect robust and scalable server-side applications.

I don't claim to be an expert in any of these technologies. It takes an entire career to learn any one of these and I am just getting started with my career. However, while I am not an expert, I appreciate that my coding journey has taken me to a variety of technologies.

I'm honored to have seen some of what the rich software engineering ecosystem has to share. I hope to use this blog to share some of my experiences.

My non-technical passions

Beyond the confines of technology, I find solace and rejuvenation in a variety of hobbies (really I have way too many hobbies). In my free time I enjoy rock climbing, weight lifting, hiking running, reading whatever I can get my hands on, traveling, gardening, and cooking. I wish I had more free time or more hours in the day, but don't we all.
