I'm a person who has done these things:
- Had a child before the age of 21.
- Realized that probably wasn't the best way to go.
- Moved back in with the parents to finish out college ( dual degree in Computer Science and Math ) and single-dad it up.
- Slowly figured out that I like to create things and to tinker with new, fun technologies — and that web/software development is a great outlet for that.
Having said all that, it's also worth noting that I try not to be too precious about the tools I use to get the job done, up to and including what languages I use to tackle it.
When I'm not working or Dad-ing, you might find me chipping away at Breath of the Wild or listening to podcasts; which I pretty much cram into every bit of free time I can manage. Currently, I'm binging my way through a backlog of the fantastic comedy Dungeons & Dragons experience "The Adventure Zone".
