Zach Cardoza Profile Picture

Welcome 👋,

I think the greatest gift given to mankind is the ability to create, and I love being able to create. Whether it's a software or hardware project, the "Hello World" moment is my favorite because it means I'm stepping out on a new journey of creativity. I do hope you are enjoying this journey as well. I am a Christian, Husband, and Father. I have many interests, including Programming, Combat Robotics, Dirt Bikes, Ultimate Frisbee, and Disc Golf. I write about some of these interests, and I hope some of my writings might be of help to others on their journey. I am always open to providing help to anyone in need, so feel free to send me an email to "zach" at this domain (zachcardoza.com) and I'll do my best to help you.

Enjoy the journey,

Zach Cardoza
