About Me

I completed Brainstation's Web Development Immersive course in August 2015, and have been coding ever since. I learned the basics of full-stack development, fron HTML5 and CSS3, to JavaScript and various libraries, responsive layouts in Bootstrap and Foundation, to Ruby on Rails- and of course, version control using Github. Since then, I have returned to my day job of managing a hardware company, and have been coding on the side. A few proprietary projects later, I'm ready to start my transition into a full-time front-end developer!
