About Me

My journey towards becoming a developer begins my senior year of college. I had decided not to go to Seminary the next year. I had spent years preparing for it. I had studied and improved my interpersonal skills. Despite that work and time spent, I finally accepted that such a people-focused job would not be for me.

I finished my liberal arts degree and looked into other career options. When I discovered programming, I fell in love. Since then, I have been on a lifelong journey of learning. I've taught myself every skill listed below. This journey has also taught me the value of humility and collaboration on this journey.


Here is a list of public projects I am currently working on:

Life Together Calculator

This was the first application I built. Originally, I built it in React.

Currently, I am rebuilding it in Go and HTMX to have the same functionality.
