background

during the summer of 2020 i discovered bitcoin and it completely changed my life in so many ways. one of which is that it prompted me to give coding a try. after discovering how much i enjoy coding, i began working hard at teaching myself the fundamentals of web development.

my goal was to become a bitcoin developer so that i could focus all of my resources towards what i believe is the most important project of our time. i am now happy to say that i contribute to open source projects and work as a bitcoin dev full-time!

all of my code is open source, please feel free to review my code on github. this is my proof of work.

i'd like to thank everyone who has helped me along this incredible journey so far, i've met many kind and generous people along the way. for anyone interested in learning how to code, i wrote a blog post detailing how i was able to accomplish this.
