A web developer pursuing passions...
Hello and thank you for taking the time to look over my portfolio! My name is SECONDL1GHT,
I care about privacy and therefore prefer to go by a pseudonym online.
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 so that I could pursue this new found passion of bitcoin + coding. My goal was to switch careers and 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! I have taken the leap to leave my old career behind and give 100% of my time and effort towards bitcoin.
I'd like to thank everyone who has helped me along this incredible learning journey so far, I've met many kind and generous people along the way. I want to make meaningful contributions to the bitcoin community and write high quality code.
All of my code is open source, please feel free to review my code on GitHub. This is my proof of work.
For anyone interested in learning how to code and begin a career in development, I wrote a blog post detailing how I was able to accomplish this. Hopefully others may find some inspiration and helpful information to pursue their own coding journey!
Outside of coding I enjoy hiking, snowboarding, riding my motorcycle, longboarding, campfires with friends & family and jumping into lakes.

Please note that while these projects are cool, I built them when I was first learning to code. I have not gone back to do any refactoring after I have gained more advanced knowledge in development and design. It's on the to-do list one day!
Open Source Contributions
All of my projects are open source, I also enjoy contributing to open source repositories in my spare time. I believe it is the best method for development and love how the global community and
together to build amazing projects. You cannot stop an idea whose time has come and you cannot stop open source code!
Here are some select open source projects that I have contributed to:
