What makes me unique
When I first started to learn HTML, I thought how amazing it was that I could create a website from a few lines of code. After that, my thirst for broader knowledge took over. I quickly became a WordPress specialist for one of the largest domain registrar companies. As I continued to grow, I started to pursue the networking side of things and worked at a data center configuring and providing support on many different operating systems.
I continued to evolve my skills and pursued a career in deskside support. The one-on-one interactions of deskside support was rewarding because I had the chance to genuinely help those who had the greatest needs. I provided support to companies such as Facebook, Pepsi, Microsoft and many pharmaceutical companies.
Over the many years of providing support, I was still honing my craft for my true calling — programming. I have been programming for over 10 years now. I have developed numerous business websites, e-commerce stores and web-based internal applications. I have even explored application development and have successfully launched apps on Android Marketplace and the Apple App Store. Someone once told me, “follow your passion and you will never work a day in your life.” I took those words to heart and I come to work every day eagerly awaiting the next project.
What makes me proud
I am most proud of the journey. In this industry, we get a chance to take a firm’s vision, dreams and goals and turn them into reality.
