Developer Backstory

From the earliest days of my existence, I harbored an insatiable love for video games and an unspoken dream of being the creator behind them. In my youth, I held a vague notion of programming, envisioning it as an impenetrable fortress of ones and zeros, where every keystroke wielded the power of creation - an intimidating and elusive endeavor.

My journey into programming began with sporadic sparks of curiosity. I dabbled in introductory programming courses during my college years and explored online tutorials on HTML and CSS during high school. I even ventured into the world of game development as a sixth-grader, tasked with creating a game on a graphing calculator. Yet, despite these encounters, the path forward still seemed shrouded in complexity.

Upon graduating with an accounting degree, I embarked on a career in the realm of numbers, working at a tax firm. But the monotony of this world soon wore on me. I craved a creative outlet, but within the confines of accounting, creativity danced perilously close to the edge of impropriety.

One day, while grappling with tedious Excel tasks, I ventured into the world of Excel Macros. In an unexpected turn of events, I discovered the essence of programming and harnessed it to streamline my work. It dawned on me that, just maybe, self-learning web development was within my reach.

For years, I balanced my day job in accounting with nocturnal endeavors in web development. Serendipitously, friends in need of websites and fortuitous connections came my way. Eventually, I mustered the courage to leave my day job and plunge into freelancing.

As my confidence in web development grew, I pondered the complexity of game development. Could I teach myself this intricate craft as well? The answer was a resounding yes, and thus began my journey into game development.

In the midst of these pursuits, I also embarked on the adventure of becoming a soccer coach.

Today, I've chosen the stability of a full-time job over freelancing, and I wear it as a badge of honor. I successfully transformed my dissatisfaction with a career I once thought was my destiny into a fulfilling vocation that I truly adore.
