My name is Eldon Yoder.
I was born in Guatemala where my parents were missionaries in the late ’80s.
I am the middle of five children. All told there are three boys and two girls. As I said, I’m right in the middle of all of them. Most of my siblings are married and have kids, being an uncle is probably my favorite thing.
I am a Christian. I believe that what the Bible says is true and I try to pattern my life and all that I do after it.
What I Do
I am a full-time freelance web designer and developer. If you’re interested in that you can find out more at NodleStudios.
I also really enjoy photography/videography. I’ve been known to do some commercial photography from time to time.
I help run the marketing/business side of my family’s farm.
I’ve been writing words for quite some time. They don’t always make a lot of sense, but I find I process a subject in a deeper and different way when I write about it.
I drink a lot of coffee. Probably too much. The current favorite is Lavazza made with an Aeropress. (Those are affiliate links. You can help me pay for my habit, at no extra cost to yourself, by clicking those links and buying some yourself.)
I grew up and live on a farm. Like a real farm. I love living in the country… I also enjoy a bit of city life from time to time, but pretty soon I remember why I love the country.
I dropped out of college. I don’t recommend it necessarily.
I shave my beard about once a week (or month). Just because.
I lived in Guatemala for a year. Half of that year I navigated a river with a boat. I tried to learn Spanish while I was there and can generally get along in a conversation. But this takes my “hacker” mentality to a whole new level.
And I think that’s enough for now, thanks for stopping by.
