Born and raised in Mountain View, CA (Before google took over the town), I went to html summer camps at Stanford as a kid and I have always been messing around on computers. I attended college in San Francisco, and was tweaking websites for friends and landing pages for different social networks. After college I moved to NYC to be closer to family.
I soon found a job with a design firm and absorbed more and more of their IT and accounting workload, enabling the firm to let go of IT contracts and consolidate the firm's backend needs.
In 2015, I was getting tired of consuming so many faulty websites and apps and kept seeing the limitations of the app or places where I wanted to tweak the app. Some times a small part of the design or other times want to add more robust features or want to even totally redo the app entirely. I wanted to really start creating and contributing, so I started to take MOOC's and follow various tutorials working mainly with Python and Ruby, building various projects, a sandwich tracker and some other small projects, but the magic was hidden behind gems and I wanted to really get into the nitty gritty, so end of 2016 decided to take a bigger step, kick this thing into gear for real.
