Web Developer

I’m a self-taught web developer and veterinarian. I want to use technology to make veterinary medicine more efficient.

Building something and watching it succeed is extremely gratifying. I’m here to teach you some of today’s most in demand skills. I want you to experience the joy of building something from nothing.

My background: I have been coding for 9 years. I was first motivated to learn how to program because I wanted to build a super Mario bros fan site. It was a simple static HTML and CSS website. Although that website never got traction my interest in coding did.

In high school, a friend showed me how to build dynamic websites with a PHP framework. I grew frustrated with PHP because the community was fragmented between many frameworks.
In university I saw a video where a developer makes a blog with Django, in 15 minutes. I loved the fact that Django is quick and powerful.I love Django because it has a english like syntax and a strong community of developers. After becoming comfortable developing with Django, I volunteered to build websites for friends and family. Eventually I was referred to my first paying client.
