What he does:
I talk to computers in languages they understand. Worked on a wide range of programming projects from fleet routing software to facebook games, front end to back end. My day job keeps me busy working on guitarcenter.com. No real education. I learned on the streets, and by streets I mean internet. All the resources you need to learn programming is free and available online. No special training, or student loans, required.
I started programming right out of highschool. While working at a gas station a accountant working at a business across the street came over to buy something. She mentioned needing some help with an ecommerce website. I was already a geeky kid so I already built some websites with my free time. I went over to her office across the street, introduced myself and the rest is history.
Future Aspirations: Be an entrepreneur. I have two startups cooking right now, one automating event promotions via social media, the other an informational site about foods that are great for your brain. By October I hope to be working full time on them.

Dream Job: My dream job would be running my own company. I’m tired of working for the man.
