Welcome to my website. I am in the process of making a career change from social work,
a noble profession that I have enjoyed for six years but the time has come to move on,
to programming. I have long had a love affair with technology. While working in various
professions, from radio talk show host to therapist, I have always been passionate about
the latest and greatest devices, ideas and interests in the tech world. Realizing that
I was not enjoying my current career, but that I have had a constant desire to get into
programming, I made the decision to begin studying on my own to make the transition.
I am using the excellent site Team
Treehouse to build my skills. I am also using books,
including Learn Ruby the Hard Way by
Zed Shaw and Learn to
Program by Chris Pine.
