About Me

Hi There!close

What can I say, I've had a fascination with computers since I could walk and talk. I've known my whole life that a career in technology would bring me a sense of fulfillment. However, up until now, the gulf between my passion and a career seemed insurmountable. I felt that, since I did not have the traditional CS degree, I would never truly be qualified to work in this field.

The Coding Bootcamp at UNCC has been an eye opening experience for me, to say the least. It has shown me that I am more than capable of tackling the problems that programmars face on a day to day basis, and my knowledge has grown exponentially in a relatively short time. Gaining the ability to take my ideas and bring them to life is the single most empowering feeling I have experienced.

I can't wait to make this my career, and do work that will not only be personally fulfilling, but also helpful to those around me.
