About Me

I was introduced to computer gaming at a young age. I immediately fell in love and I owe my ability to maneuver a keyboard like I do now to all of the games I played for many years. My love for video games led me to building my first computer when I was 16 and have built three more from scratch since then. I've always been rather tech-savvy and intrigued by technology as it's progressed. After doing some research while working at Two Men and a Truck the summer of 2019, I attended a 3 week jump start course at Nashville Software School. I wrote my first line of code in September of the same year. I felt I found the path I'd been looking for, it quickly clicked with me and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The same passion I had while building computers was reignited with building applications. I am excited to begin my new career in technology.
