a photo of me

 

My Dad taught me basic DOS commands when I was five. In seventh grade, I was a library aide. One of the students I worked with taught me my first HTML tags. I spent the next few years designing amateur Web sites and devouring every book I could get my hands on.

When I realized that the future of news was online, I started thinking of my future self as a journalist. I was already using RSS to get the news and read my favorite blogs. By seeking out courses in online journalism, I have added CSS and Flash to my programming capabilities. I'm currently teaching myself PHP/MySQL.
