In a former life, I was a Washington Post tech reporter and columnist. In recent years, I've done freelance writing and consulting with local businesses and nonprofits seeking to improve their Web presence. My favorite part of both of these professional lives has been taking complex topics and breaking them down in a matter so that they're engaging and understandable to the average reader.
In 2016, I took two great courses at General Assembly in Washington, DC. One was focused on the emerging discipline of UX, the other class covered front end web development (HTML, CSS, Jquery, Bootstrap, among others).
After the GA classes, I went on to get Scrum Master certification.
Random bragging point: In the summer of 2013, my wife and I completed an Ironman triathlon in Louisville, Ky. That's 2 miles of swimming, followed by 112 miles of cycling, followed by 26.2 miles of running.
