I can't tell you how many "About You" sections I've filled out. I've probably filled them out with every possible tone, sentiment, and word length. Why am I burned out on this process? More than likely, it has to do with my 14 years of being plugged into the web and digital landscape.
Web development was my career path for most of my adult life. It was a field I somewhat "fell into" and kinda stuck because it was a skill that was in demand. But you know what happens when your skills are in demand? Yes, you get paid well for it, but you also get stretched thinner than you can imagine.
This whole "spread too thin" theme snowballed to a point where my physical health became compromised. That was about two years ago.
Don't get me wrong; being a web developer has many great parts. The one that I wanted to carry over into my next career was helping people.
I love getting to help people use tech to remove barriers and reach their goals. Yeah, I know that sounds "salesy," but it's true!
I have many interests that span across tech, web development, digital design, drumming, music performance (I was a metal drummer and toured all over the country!), piano, and art. However, the idea of helping people jump over hurdles is the unifier of all these skills. I'm on Simbi to see how I can use this myriad of skill sets to help others and learn more about trades that apply to my current endeavors.
Thanks for reading my novel of a bio. I look forward to meeting and learning from the Simbi community!
