Who even is this guy?
For starters, I don't really care if you call me Mike or Michael. Heck, you can even call me Miska if you want (that's what the Hungarian side of my family calls me). And if you're wondering what the meaning is behind my domain name, Hamblestone is just some weird name my friend came up with. And it only cost $7.99 to register...
I am very happily married to my wife Ashley, and together we have a doggo named Cessna. No we didn't produce him, we adopted him, and we treat him like our own child. We live together in Baltimore, MD.
If you are here because you are trying to figure out if you want to hire me, then keep reading.
I've spent most of my professional career working in technology. Ever since I was a kid, I loved computers. I was one of those kids that took the family computer apart and figured out how to put it back together. Then I realized that you can actually make the computer do stuff that you wanted it to do. Learning this, I started making simple games and shared them with my friends. The one thing that has always fascinated me about computers though, is the internet.
I remember being fascinated by sites like GeoCities and Freewebs; That I could create my own website, for free!?! That was awesome. But then I realized that you can actually make the computer do stuff that you wanted it to do. So I started learning HTML and CSS. I was probably 11 at that time (nearly 15 years ago - now you know my age). That's when I knew I wanted a career telling a computer what to do.
I spent the rest of my school years with the idea of becoming a programmer in mind. I took plenty of math courses and computer science courses. I even got a high school internship as a web developer where I used my HTML and CSS knowledge, and added PHP as a skill. Then I graduated high school and like most of my peers, went off to college.
I didn't really like it.
I think that just about catches you up regarding my career...
Well I have lots of hobbies and passions, becasue I enjoy lots of things. Here's just some of them:
- Retro Video Games
- Long Walks On The Beach (actually, I've never had one of those...)
