I started programming as a hobby around 17 years ago. At that time I also was into video-game hacking. Much later, I realised I could make a living from my hobby and took it seriously. I'm currently working for 8thLight and liking functional programming
I want to help build a diverse engineering culture - only when worked on by diverse teams technical products can become the all-encompassing change agents we envision. I am working at Pivotal Labs, were we teach devs through pairing day by day.
I'm tying to polish my web-dev skills, primarily trying to improve my css, react, and d3 skills. I am an entrepreneur and a hobbyist programmer. I would also love to help to mentor in order to give back to the community.
I've coded as an amateur and a student for more than 20 yrs. Went pro last year via WDI at GA. I want to be a part of a more inclusive, balanced work environment, and tweeting stuff probably isn't going to get me there. This has a better chance imo.
I'd like to use my coding skills to help people learn to code. I like Functional Programming and currently I work for Codurance. I have done (either professionally or purely for learning) Haskell, Scala, PHP, Ruby, Java, JS, React and others :)

As a software developer from a non-tech background, I think many people perceive the field as scary/bleak/uninteresting. I disagree! I feel it's creative and full of opportunities, and would like to share this. I'd also like to get better at teaching.
