Where are you from?

I am Afghan American. :D

When did you start programming? How long have you been programming?

I started programming in my second year of college. It's been almost four years... I think?

Why did you choose to do programming?

I wanted to choose a career where I would never get bored and I could use my creativity.

Did you go to school or are you self-taught?

A combination of both. I am currently pursuing a bachelors in Computer Science. I also spend a couple hours every week using online resources to keep up to date with technology or areas I am interested in.

Can you teach me how to code? Can you be my mentor?

I do not have plans to teach/mentor anybody at the moment- this may change in the future.

What do you do?

Working at smaller companies and non-profits, I wear a lot of hats. I do development, marketing, and education related work at the two non-profit organizations I work at.

What are your hobbies outside of programming?

I love video games! I also really enjoy drawing, designing, and cooking.

What is your tech stack?

I don't really have one right now- but I primarily work with a full stack framework called SailsJS and postgreSQL. I also am learning React, Java, Elixir, in small chunks.

What are your favorite tools for front-end?

I use Visual Studio Code to develop and Sketch to design layouts.

How can I contact you?
