These days I don't know whether to call myself a software developer, a teacher, or a writer. I suppose I am all of those things, at varying degrees of experience and quality. What I do know is that my passion lies in teaching others how to use their skills to do amazing things. By founding Mendicant University, I am now able to dedicate most of my efforts to helping and teaching others, and that makes me very happy.

In addition to my work on this school, I also run the Practicing Ruby Journal. It's a fairly unique publication that lets me reach a dedicated group of Ruby learners on a weekly basis so that I can share my experiences with them through my writing. This project is also very satisfying to me because the research I put into it helps me become a better teacher, which in turn helps improve Mendicant University over time.
