The saying is true, “If you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life.” This holds true every day I boot up my computer at Cup O Code. As a kid, I wanted to know how everything worked so I took apart anything I could find (most often I did not put things back together). This led me to explore the world of computer programming throughout high school. After years of working jobs that never gave me the satisfaction I was looking for, I turned back to programming by studying Full-Stack Software Development at Lambda School ( now Bloom Tech).
Throughout my career, I have worked on large scale projects, small websites and everything in between. I am passionate about developing solutions to problems and delivering top-teir work, no matter the project.
Continuing my education is important, so I am currently working towards a Bachelors of Science in Information Technology. When the time allows, I also work towards certification and currently hold two Amazon Web Services certifications.
When I get away from my desk, I enjoy several hobbies. Golf, camping, and photography help me relax and connect with the outdoors. I also have an amazing daughter who never ceases to amaze me as she grows into a fantastic young woman. I am supported everyday by my wonderful friends and family.
Be the programmer
Most good programmers do programming not because they expect to get paid or get adulation by the public, but because it is fun to program.
– Linus Torvalds
Here is a chance for you to step into the shoes of a programmer and try writing some of your own code. Use this embedd code sandbox to try out some of your own ideas. It only takes a few lines of code to get hooked.
