Technology is a huge part of my life and it all started with my family. My father showed me all the different wonders that an old Dell Dimension with a CRT monitor and internet connection can provide. My eldest brother deserves recognition for the introduction to technology opportunities such as System Engineering (by teaching me how to build my own computer) and Software Development (by showing me the different tools and their possibilities). I am grateful for the support not just from my father and brother but also the rest of my family and friends.
Higher education provided me discipline and creativity in technology, science and art. In addition to academia, I found much delight in captaining intramural soccer and, especially, helping others with their technology struggles. This led to an epiphany many people go through at one point - finding your passion. I found that I wanted to use my Information Technology & Systems degree to not only learn and work in the industry but also help people.
I'm currently employed as a Technical Account Manager in the technology industry.
