About 5 years ago, I started to realize that the Internet is here to stay. I looked around and noticed that it had colonized our lives faster than Rome conquered Europe. I like to describe the web as a new country, I call 'InternetLand'.
Consider how difficult it is for people who don't know English in America. In InternetLand, HTML is the new English. I wanted to join that new economy without being bound to a translator because there is more opportunity in InternetLand than in America.
I knew how to consume the web, but I had no idea how it worked. So, in 2012, I sold my old-world business and dove in head-first to learn all things web. That makes my career path one of a graphic designer, turned entrepreneur, turned developer.
