Hello! My name is Craig Booker. I’m a Writer and Software Developer from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Take a look below to learn more about me.
A love for electronics started while tinkering with electronics when I was young. This love for electronics lead to a love for computers both hardware and software. My love for technology lead me to work at Apple. It was while working at Apple where I would learn techniques to help individuals get the most out of their technology.
My earliest memories of writing are between 2000 and 2001. I wrote off and on for fifteen years before I discovered it was a gift. Writing was always just something I did in my spare time as a form of self-expression. I never considered it as a passion or as a potential career.
While at Apple, I learned about their people-first culture, developing a love of people of all backgrounds and interests. It was while working at Apple that I affirmed many of my ideas on mentoring, leadership, personal development, and customer service.
I love to learn, I love to encourage others on their journey, and I love to see others grow into the person they are meant to be.

When making life altering decisions, the danger is often not in what you can see, it’s what you can not foresee. I so desperately wanted to make apps, I believe I was blind to any and all danger just up ahead. I thank God for protecting me and my family while I chased after a…
In my last post, I mentioned the danger often being in things we cannot see. There is a certain level of risk in everything we do. Avoiding risk should never be our primary goal. Learning to take calculated risks and make wise choices is what life is all about. Without risk there is no reward.…
