The fire that drives.
When I was very young, I made it my mission to only persue work that I enjoyed. In times of economic recession, I may have crossed the border of that promise, but in hindsight, it was those activities that forged my work ethics.
My first passion is food, cooking to be exact, I love to see peoples faces light up when they are eating food I prepared. I was in the food industry from the bottom up, started as a dishwasher and ended up as a chef on Union Street in San Francisco.
My Food Website (Joomla)
A 5mph accident on my motorcycle bought me 9 months away from the food industry, back in 1998. While laid up I bought my first computer and taught myself how to build web pages. Upon healing I was hired for my first programming job at Egghead down in Menlo Park. From there, every 2-3 years I would 'graduate' into more complex roles sometimes due to businesses closing, merging or simply my contract ran out.
After working at LetsTalk, Stanford, NComputing and Genentech, I find myself starting a new life outside of San Francisco in the East Bay, Richmond, California.
Just like my love for food, my passion for coding has not only had me learning about the most current trends, but is pushing those boundries while I enjoy the path whereever the codes leads me.
