Hey 👋 I'm Scott!

I’m a husband and dad from Colorado studying Software Engineering at Springboard, a coding boot camp.

I started building this site as part of my personal commitment to “rigorous leisure”

I started building this site in August 2019. The more I learned about coding, the more fascinated I became, until in early 2021 I decided to make a career change.

If you’d like to connect, I’m available on Twitter or email. If you’d like to support my work, you can buy me a coffee! Thank you for visiting!
