My
Story

Hi there! My name is Jack.

In early 2019 I had a bit of a life-review...

I was doing well in digital journalism for a number of years but something felt off. I kept asking myself, "if I could do life over again... what would I do?"

Coding was the answer.

For as long as I can remember I have loved messing with computers. Building and selling them. Doing things I shouldn't be doing with the internet (it was the early days ;) ) and I had always envied every developer I met. I lusted over having the ability to create with my own keyboard.

So I did it... I quit my job (kinda crazy) and went to the Digital Crafts bootcamp in Atlanta.

And now I build things... And it's awesome.
