My Background

I was a graphic designer for 15 years. I reached a point where I wanted to expand my skills, after months of thinking, deliberating, and researching I found data. While working with Data I found Data visualization. At first, I thought, this is perfect, it seemed like a great switch from design to data, but then, through visualization, I found Python and Python led me to HTML, CSS eventually Javascript, jQuery and on it went. Before I knew it, what started as a road to Data Science became web development. I fell in love with web development and that’s the end. Now I am working on expanding the skills I have learned and broadening my knowledge of development languages and tools.
