• My Story of Being a Self Taught Programmer and Designer to Working at Uber

    1,518 views 1 year ago
    Hey everyone, welcome to the channel! I'm really excited to share my story with you all. I was an auto mechanic in the suburbs of Baltimore who wanted to get out, explore the world, and build an online business. I used Youtube, online learning, blogs, and documentation to teach myself about web design, then slowly expanded in all directions to learn branding, graphic design, front end development, back end engineering, content marketing, product strategy, and everything in-between. After freelancing as a web designer and specializing with the Squarespace website platform, I built out a portfolio of clients using nothing more than relentless hard work. I bounced around in New York, tried to build a startup by myself, then landed in San Francisco for contract work with Uber. I'm now a full time senior design engineer at Uber, on the global web platform team. I want to use this channel to share my experiences with you, teach you everything I know, and document everything I'm doing as I continue to push forward and grow. I hope you all find it extremely useful. Thanks so much for checking it out! ~J
