About Me

I am a Chicago native who has also lived in St. Louis, MO and Austin, TX. I learned to program and built all the projects you see here during my 12 weeks at Dev Bootcamp in Chicago.

I like mountain biking, cooking, and anything that involves adrenaline.

Also my name was originally Johnson but I didn't like it so I changed my name to Jack in kindergarten.
