I was born and raised in Oregon, Grants Pass and then later, before high school I was in the Ashland-Medford area . I had taken up programming early in my childhood , along with music, playing guitar and singing ( sort of ) . I had started working in restaurants when I was fifteen, and had found myself cooking by the time I was twenty.
In high school, I wanted to be a game developer. I was unable to perfect the skill of calculus , and I could only handle so much code, so I sort of left it behind. Later, picking up coding again , but for freelance web development, I finally started taking work while cooking full time when I was twenty three.
I focus primarily on php/MySQL web development and WordPress
My first son was born in 2003, and in 2005 my first daughter was born. I wasn’t a normal person, so you could always find me at home taking care of the kids and working on the computer. I had a real drive to leave the food industry and work in a industry and a in a way that allowed me to be home more with my kids. Fast forward ten years and one divorce later, I found my Wife now, who is the best thing ever in the entire universe, fell in love, and our daughter was born in 2015, and my second son to be born August 1st 2018 . Needless to say, it is a big house, three teenagers ( she had a daughter around the same age ) and two little ones, three cats, and you might as well throw in a partridge and a pear tree!
I am a family man, and a man of faith and loyalty . I have a passion for working hard and doing good by my word and helping others.
My passion for food comes and goes, but my love of code and the markets is and will always be my driving addiction.
