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.
