My Story

 

 

 

Let me introduce myself and tell you about why I love coding!

My name is Logan, and I am 33 years old. And I am a nerd. Ever since I was a kid, I have loved gaming and toying with computers. I also have a life-long passion for language learning. In fact, after getting my Bachelors in Education, I moved to Taiwan, where I would teach ESL for five years. During that time, I also met the love of my life and learned to speak Mandarin Chinese fluently. Yet something was missing. I loved my work, but I needed more. I guess you could say that I took a rather round-about path to where I am today. Web Development.

After moving back to Texas, I went on to begin learning Javascript for fun, and I immediately fell in love with writing code! It was just like learning a new human language, but now I was talking with computers, which made me feel super cool, and it tied in my two biggest passions, so I knew I was on the right track! The challenge, and the satisfaction you get when you solve a problem with code that you have written is addictive. I needed more. So I dove into HTML, CSS and Python to quench my thirst for knowledge. But after a while, I realized that as much as I loved learning on my own, I would benefit greatly by having a dedicated block of time in a structured environment to really take my game to the next level. So I got on my computer and I started researching all of the available development boot camps around town and online.  I found out about  Digital Crafts, and here I am!

It has taken me a while in life to find my true passion, or rather to realize that my passion should also be my career. Now, I live and breathe Web Development.
