I have always loved building things by hand. Taking raw ingredients and combining them into something spectacular, or even taking something already created and making it better than it was, has always made me happy.
This passion first led me into the restaurant industry.
Starting out as a fry cook in a dive bar, I worked my way through culinary school, and into the fine-dining scene. I was fueled by the rush of combining individual elements into an experience that brought people happiness. I lived for the smile that appeared on customers' faces as they had that first taste of something I made.
Now, instead of combining ingredients into delicious food, I've taken that love into tech as I combine lines of code into beautiful applications and engaging user experiences.
