Thank you for visiting colinstodd.com. This site was built for my career in Software Development, but I'll assume you're here to find some background info on where I come from and what I'm working on/with today.
TLDR/In short, I’m a percussionist turned/amended web application and mobile developer. ☑️
I played percussion with two bands: Damn Right! and Earthtone for about 10 years. I started playing in my Sophomore year, throughout College and years thereafter. However, I've always had interests aside of music, so I decided to accept a position with the Maryland General Assembly (MGA) in Annapolis, MD which is what helped me discover my other passion in life (writing code).
While working at the MGA I began teaching myself to program using online resources, but I decided to get a "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. Later that year I moved from my hometown of Annapolis Maryland to work in the D.C. area with the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA).
You can view a list of the programming languages, frameworks, and libraries I work with by visiting my Technologies page.
I've recently (2019-2020) started playing music again, recording percussion on albums & Experimental Projects (EP's). I haven't been playing live but I've enjoyed working in the comfort of my Logic Pro X Studio. However, I have been flirting with the idea to play live again (not full time), so we shall see 😃.
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. If you see something with "Colper", that's a nickname that I've had since I was young; and I'm a huge Phish fan. I travel a few times a year with friends to see them in various locations in and around the United States...
