Self-taught Web Developer @ https://Commercejs.com & Aspiring Serial Entrepreneur

 Orlando, FL

I'm a 22 year old web developer @ Commercejs.com, currently working on launching GetVippy.com (https://github.com/john-raymon/vippybeta) sometime this year or next year.

I love writing JavaScript (ES6), using tools like Node/Express for web server applications hosting REST API's and front-end libraries like React/Vue.js, Figma, Sketch and more.

I'm dedicated to a life-long journey of learning, currently reading Nand to Tetris in hopes of picking up bits of CS and writing open-source code.

TOP FACTS ABOUT

Started self-teaching web development/programming at the age of 16, in 2014, with a start-up idea of mine, Pixelbrary, acting as the catalyst for learning.


Dropped out of high school at 16 to learn how to code when I couldn't get into NYC's https://www.afsenyc.org/, instead obtained a NY TASC Diploma at 18 years old.


Landed my first full-time developer role in August 2018, at Sanctuary.Computer, making 65k a year in Brooklyn, NY.
