Life is an adventure. The roads taken are sometimes predictable and at other times quite unexpected. If you had asked me one year ago where I saw myself in a year, my answer would not be “The new webmaster for JW Survey”.
I am excited to introduce myself and let you know a bit about me.
A very brief history
My family background is steeped in Jehovah’s Witnesses. I am a third generation Jehovah’s Witness (ex JW obviously) – so I have a lot of
I have a passion for technology, programming, robotics, video games, science, books, a bit of math and some light philosophy.
Over 15 years of general programming experience gives me the opportunity to help out the Survey team in some pretty cool ways.
I’m a single data with a daughter. I couldn’t be prouder of my family.
How did I get to join the team?
Simply put, watching the videos on the John Cedars channel changed my life.
I reached out to Lloyd because I appreciate his approaches to dismantling the Jehovah’s Witness belief system and reasoning it all out. Lloyd took kindly to my volunteer efforts and let me in a bit.
From there, we simply continued to support each other and build a bit of a relationship, even though we’d never met (and still haven’t).
After a while and a few smaller projects together, he asked me to join the JW survey team, we shook on it (digitally) and that’s that!
Ultimately, I just want to support the team so they can help as many people as possible. There’s no better reward than knowing some action you took today may help someone down the line in ways you can’t possibly know.
What do I get to do?
I’ll be helping all the members of the team with web technologies as much as I can. This will include making upgrades to the website here and possibly future ones to come.
I will also be available to funnel web related issues from you, the wonderful readers; so do give me a shout if there are any issues you think we should address.
Hopefully this will grow and I’ll get to help out with many other technological aspects as well. My strengths aren’t limited to just the web.
In reality, if I’m doing my job right, you should never really know I’m here!
A special shoutout
I want to thank everyone on the JW Survey team for having me on board and being so welcoming. I hope that I can do everyone proud.
