Volunteering at the Mercy for Animals booth in 2013

From English teacher to Army broadcaster, feature film editor to rare book buyer, I am a writer, a wife, a gamer and geek of the highest order, a believer in social justice and an unwavering animal rights advocate. Gradually, I am becoming a programmer and web developer. My life is rich, and my quest for growth and knowledge never ceases. Like Walt Whitman, “I am large, I contain multitudes.”

I finally got around to creating this “codex” because I’ve reached a point in my life in which all the disparate pursuits of my youth seem to be coming home to a focal point, a true life’s path that incorporates all the aspects of who I have been and who I’m becoming. That is to say that visitors are just as likely to see musings on a recent Dr. Who episode or some shiny new gadget I’ve procured (or even better, an ancient piece of hardware I’ve dusted-off) as they are to see evidence of my inherited interest in conspiracy theories or a heartfelt lament for the plight of the world’s animals. Still, I see this endeavor as ultimately the chronicle of my journey from writer with geeky tendencies (and just enough self-taught, hard-won coding knowledge to be dangerous) to junior web developer and beyond. I intend this blog to be a repository for the bits of wisdom I am currently gleaning from code school combined with the experience I have gleaned elsewhere, as a reference for myself and hopefully, for you.

If your own journey has landed you here, I appreciate your visit and hope you will find some value. I am always happy to make a new friend and mentor, and all friendly feedback  and commentary is quite welcome.
