I have loved working with computer hardware and software for as long as I can remember. I started developing websites in 1995. I have learned the hardware side of computers and have even built some home pcs from scratch. However, I enjoy the software development side and the whole creative process behind it. I originally received my Associate’s Degree for Computer Information Systems from Atlantic Cape Community College. I started attending DeVry University in 2012 to get my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Information Systems with a concentration in Web Development and Administration. I will be completing my studies at the end of August 2016 and I am hoping to use my education to further my career.
