Hello!

About Me

I'm an Auctioneer & EMT-IV Tech. turned Front End Developer. With a passion for web design and development for the past 5 years as a hobby, I've made the decision to make it my career.

Location

Gatlinburg, Tenn. has been my home for the last 20+ years. It's at the foothills of the Smoky Mtn. National Park. It's one of the most beautiful places in the United States. Being this close to the National Park allows me to take a break from studying code and enjoy the outdoors.

Education

I started learning to code with Treehouse back in 2013, and I just completed a Front End Techdegree. After graduating, I was accepted into The Flatiron School Full Stack Web Development Program and started on May 8th 2017. I've spent time learning at Codecademy, FreeCodeCamp, certificate courses with the W3C, and Udemy.

Hobbies

My passion as of the last few years has become coding and when I have a free moment that is usually where my time is spent, but everyone needs to get outside and away from tech. I love being outdoors and enjoying the mtns where I live either hiking, rafting, or camping. I've also been practicing meditation for the past for 10 years. Oh, and the occasional video game needs played.
