I was born and raised in a small town in northern Iowa. My interest in web programming was discovered in early high school when I first built a website using a template with a early free website service. I was curious about how to create a webpage with code, so I spent a summer researching online tutorials and examining source code to create a personal site using HTML. This was achieved with Geocities File Manager system and a 1996 Gateway computer (which I was very fortunate to have).

I revised the look and layout of the entire site a few times over the years. Later on Cascading Style Sheets were implemented to cut down on the time needed to update styles for every individual page. JavaScript effects including visual transitions while loading a new page were added, though sadly they are now obsolete.

After high school my passion shifted to the fine arts, which I self-studied with books and worked on improving my traditional art abilities (drawing, later painting).

I have found that being able to render images with traditional methods such as painting and drawing is similar to creating a webpage. It requires a lot of planning, attention to detail, and an analytical approach to make things "look right." You must be able to see the big picture, and break it down into digestible pieces in order to create.

My passion for web development has brought me back to school to get updated on newer technologies and frameworks, and delve into the full-stack development process. In addition to web development, I have studied computer graphics and visual communications.
