Don’t mind the chopped up pink graffiti residue. We’re a package deal.

I’m also a:

  • Web developer.
  • Instructor.
  • Author.
  • Musician.
  • Business Owner
  • Kombucha drinker.
  • Clothing Designer.
  • Yada yada yada!

My mission is to help people finding rewarding careers in software development.

I’m a self-taught developer who worked in enterprise web development before starting my own company. By my first year in, I received an offer from a large Bay Area tech company you’ve probably heard of. But my long-term goals have always centered on owning my own business and doing things my way…So, here I am.

Whether you’re an absolute beginner or have years of experience, my style of teaching is designed to be inclusive, real-world, to-the-point and even a little bit of fun.

I’m also the founder of udemyreview.com, a portal for the best (and some of the worst) Udemy courses for web developers.
