I know I know, the Chiefs haven't won a Super Bowl in my lifetime. That doesn't stop me from cheering on my hometown boys in red. There is nothing in sports like the roar of Arrowhead on a Sunday night under the lights. The time will come and they will get their 2nd championship. I just have to hope I'm still alive to see it..
I was born and raised in the Kansas City area. I currently reside in Smithville, just north of Kansas City. My wife , Alana and I, have 3 children and a house full of pets. We enjoy doing things as a family but our kids activities keep us pretty busy most of our free time. I am currently attending Centriq training's Full Stack Web Development track in the pursuit of a career change. I spent the last 14 years in the Meat manufacturing industry and recently decided on a career change. I have always had a passion for technology and have always been curious about what drives applications and websites behind the scenes. After doing some digging and discovering Centriq, and the courses that they offered, I found that development was what really picqued my interest. Now that I have started training and have had some exposure to development I know that I made the right choice. Writing code and seeing the finished product and knowing that I created it has been amazing. What I didn't expect was to finish coding a project and then be excited about all the possibilities of what I could do with it from there. From adding more visual aspects, to more user friendly tools, and making it more responsive so that users on any device could have a more free flowing experience. I do know this though. When I made this life changing decision to head into the unknown it was nerve wrecking to say the least. Now, however, the more time I spend at the keyboard, building a solid coding foundation, the more those nerves have begun to subside, and the more I realize programming, in itself, is an amazing thing, capable of mind blowing results and un-ending possibilities. It is a challenge but one that I now welcome. Thank you for visiting my page. I hope you enjoy what you see.
