My story

My name is Greg Answer and I'm a web developer. It's my passion. It's my life. I also love Star Trek. This combination makes me a technological, philosophical, diplomatic adventurer. I started doing web development when I realized that 80% of my knowledge and personality has been developed because of information that's been shared on the Internet. Growing this skill has been my way of giving back.

For the past 3 years, I have been honing my skills as a Rails Full Stack Developer. I am focused on developing for simplicity and excellent user experience. I'm not satisfied until my code is clean, readable, and maintainable. I strive towards delivering the most impact with the least input. This level of efficiency helps to ensure user satisfaction as well as developer satisfaction.

My main drive is personal development. I strive to better myself every day, even if it's a 5% improvement. My secondary drive is social development. My greatest desire is that every action I take will somehow contribute towards social improvement. I am constantly reading and watching content that helps me improve not only for myself but also so I can share it with others. Nothing makes me happier than the knowledge that the things I'm working on will help society evolve towards a peaceful and enlightened state of mind. I don't measure success by how much money I make. I measure success by how much I've grown.
