About Me

An aspiring front-end 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. :) I currently have a successful career in a totally different field (forestry). However, I am hoping to pursue a new found passion and expand my freedom by becoming a front-end web developer. 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 now want to contribute to open-source projects and my goal is to work for a freedom-focused bitcoin company full-time. I hope you like what you find on my website. I believe that with the support of experienced developers, I have the drive, mindset and approach to learning required to become a great front-end dev. Joining an exciting team of like-minded individuals that are building the future would be a dream come true. Outside of coding I enjoy hiking, snowboarding, riding my motorcycle, paddleboarding, campfires with friends and family and jumping into lakes. Please feel free to review my code for this website and all of my projects on GitHub .


Future Skills


I am currently enrolled in and close to completing the Codecademy Front-End Engineer Career Path, which is how I have earned most of my certificates displayed below. I have also taken additional courses not covered in the career path to increase my knowledge and skills. I will display my learning certificates here as I receive them.

Continuous Learning

Additional courses that I am enrolled in and plan on completing after my career path are Learn Bootstrap and Learn Redux. I am also reading books related to web development and following a variety of online resources to stay current on the latest progress in the field.
