I owe these guys a lot for taking me under their wing and giving me the means to learn as much as I have. A very smart shop with very smart people working for them.May 2015 - Sept 2015
When I graduated from Teacher's Assistant to Teacher, I was given a smaller class to get to know my students more intimately. I mimiced the same curriculum from my TA position but changed the methods up, resulting in more advanced topics covered beyond what was offered in General Assembly's online discription of the course. Specifically, we got into PreProcessors (HAML / SASS) and other industry tools that I felt were mandatory in the web dev world (Github, Git, Terminal / Command Line).May 2015 - June 2015

This company ( specifically the Washington D.C. branch, where rock-star Jesse Shawl was one of my instructors ) is magic. This is where my career as a Web Developer really kicked off. I still have friends from the class I was in and still work with them on various projects. For anyone looking to either skip college or are looking for a course-correction from their current career path, I can't recommend General Assembly enough.August 2014 - October 2014
Sold rental insurance to people who didn't need it with such efficiency that it actually threw me into a state of depression. I have nothing against ERAC, but I felt wholly disingenuous about the whole process, and caught myself recommending different solutions to friends than what I sold to strangers. This was the point of no return; this is when I started to really delve into CodeAcademy and reveal to myself that "code" is more than the floaty green letters in "The Matrix" and that I really enjoyed playing with it.2013 - 2014
Learned fundamentals and advanced communication theories, including best practices in business environments, planning strategies, interpersonal relations, crisis management and journalism. I absolutely loved the academic side to college and the critical thinking aspet of Journalism; gather data, compile it, present it absent of filters in hopes to start a narrative. I'd say a large part of my intellectual growth occured here.2008 - 2012
