This passion began modestly when I was around 12 years old and started listening to Linkin Park's Hybrid Theory. Before that album, I never knew about all of the magic that existed with digital sound. After that {...}

I finished the Codeup web development bootcamp last Thursday. To say that I'm I'm extremely excited to continue on personal projects would be a huge understatement. However, I've run into a problem early into the setup stage and I've been stuck here for days.

I can't figure out how to create a new virtual host.

Thank you so much for supporting my music over the years. Today I'm officially relaunching my music project under a new moniker for better branding and identification, since I'll be using my real name for my future career as a web developer.

Sparking the Web Dev Flame

By: | Posted on Friday, July 11th 2014 @ 04:49:20 PM

In late April, I had spent an afternoon planning my summer class schedule at Texas State University. This schedule had to be well-defined, ensuring I would have enough time to commute to San Marcos in the morning then drive back to San Antonio for my day job. It was a painstaking process, but I had finally cultivated the perfect schedule to fit my needs. However, the morning I learned about Codeup, I dropped all of the summer courses, scaled back the work hours, and enrolled immediately.
