Howdy and Welcome! My name is Brooklyn Guan. I am a front end and WordPress developer with strong interest in application development. Currently, I work as a full-time web developer at Glantz Design in Evanston, IL.
One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was teaching myself how to code. After 10 months of full-time studying and practicing, I landed on my first full-time job as a developer. I feel extremely lucky to be doing something I love.
When I am not coding, I like spending time with my family. I have a 7 year old son, a busy husband and a sleepy greyhound. We love cooking, listening to music, walking to the beach and working on small projects. My new challenge is teaching myself how to play piano. We are a multi-cultural family, everybody except our dog can speak both English and Chinese.
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.
