Beginnings in Web Development
I have been fascinated with the web since my first experience with the Internet in the late 90s (probably trolling a 30-somethings chat room). Once I discovered the free page builder on GeoCities, my fascination quickly transformed into true love. In the summer before my sophomore year in high school, I created my first website for my very own MechWarrior 3 clan. I look back on my teenage years and think about all the time I wasted playing video games, but without them I don't think I would have gained my passion for the web.
My interests were originally centered around graphic design and simple HTML. Everything changed when I asked an online friend to help me troubleshoot some code. The first thing he said was, "You really need to validate your code." In an instant a whole new world of web standards was exposed to me. I was embarrassed for not having the foresight to research the proper way to create websites. My relationship with GeoCities ended shortly after.
