Colin Stodd with friends dog If you landed on this page I assume you have some interest in who I am. And since I'm not cool enough (yet) to have my own Wikipedia page, I'll share this bit on my personal site. In short, Iā€™m a percussion player turned web application developer. In 2014 I moved from my hometown of Annapolis Maryland to work in the D.C. area with the American Gastroenterological Association.

Other than writing software, my other passion in life is music. I played percussion with two bands ("Earthtone" and "Damn Right!") for about 10 years; but I knew I wanted more in life so I took a job with the Maryland General Assembly in Annapolis, MD. While working at the MGA I began teaching myself to program using online resources, but I decided to get a more 'formal' education, Which led me to Ruby and Ruby on Rails. In August of 2014 I completed a back-end development course at Betamore Academy in Baltimore Maryland which helped me get to where I am today.

Nowadays, I spend most of my time working with the "Full Stack", with a focus on front-end technologies such as Angular, TypeScript and NodeJS. I almost always use a CSS library like Bootstrap, and I've been dabbling into the mobile world via Dart/Flutter and Ionic. I guess you could say my stack of choice has become "AngularFlutterFire".

Colin & Tommy in Tennessee w/ Damn Right!

I've recently (2019) been recording percussion tracks on albums/EP's which has me back in the world of music; But for the time being, I'm staying away from live performances opting for the comfort of my Logic Pro X Studio šŸ˜ƒ.

Lastly, If you see some "H" logo, that's the logo for Harpua, LLC which I co-founded with a great developer friend of mine, and if you see something with "Colper", that's a nickname that I've had since I was young...
