I'm TIM LEE

and i'm a web developer

My Story

I am a full stack web developer, converted from a professional life the oil and gas industry. Within four years at Kellogg Brown & Root, I rose through the ranks of the engineering firm as a non-engineer by starting within the company as a temporary employee and rapidly ascending all the way to being hand selected by the company's Chief Intellectual Property Counsel to be part of his five-person task force in Houston despite my being a non-attorney.

However, even with a relatively stint in the oil and gas industry, coding and the tech world have always been passions of mine. So I decided to leave the O&G industry and focus completely on growing and curating my skills in the code world. I'm particularly passionate about continuing my growth in back-end development, as I find the problem-solving required in that specific arena to be a challenging yet a rewarding and powerful experience.
