I grew up passing my time playing games like Mario and Pokemon. One day in 2011 my friend asked me if I had ever heard of this game starting to blow up called Minecraft. Minecraft being the first I game played on a computer, really made me wonder what computer programming is. I decided to spend my afternoons modding the game with Java to see what this "programming" was all about. I soon began creating games, then apps, then websites, which is where I spend most of my time now. I love programming because it feeds my desires for creation, entrepreneurialism, and technology all in one activity.
