Hello internet, my name is Courtney (Court for short) and I’m your author here on Court Kizer.  I’m a huge tech geek living the ultimate dream in Southern California.  I received my bachelors degree in information technology from Cal Tech a little over a year ago.  Almost immediately after college I found a job as a systems programmer for a small tech company based out of, you guessed it, California.  The company I work for specializes in making smart phone apps for both Android and iOS systems.

While I didn’t have any experience coding for smart phones in the past. My time spent at Cal Tech prepared me well for my new work environment.  After just a few weeks of training I was ready to start working with the rest of the programmers.  Over the next year I’d gain a whole new level of appreciation for my smart phone.  I had always known it was an amazing piece of technology that could fit in the pocket of my jeans, but I never knew just how much work went into even the simplest of apps.

I think it goes without saying that living on the west coast is exactly where I want to be.  I’ve lived in California my entire life, and even after given the chance to go out of state for college, I decided to stay local and pursue a career in the field (and in the place) that I love.  Aside from all the obvious reasons I love living in California (beaches, weather, night-life) I also loving being at the epicenter of all things technology.  I think I’ve covered just about everything about me, but if you’d like to know more you could always send me and email.
