I am a veteran of the United States Marine Corps, an alumnus of North Carolina State University, a graduate of devCodeCamp, tech lover, and duck farmer. I have a deep appreciation for cultures and customs from living abroad. I am a former financial analyst who is making the leap back into software development. I am currently doing a deep dive into Python before undertaking machine learning with TensorFlow.
What I Bring
I bring inquisitiveness. An ability to grasp new concepts quickly. Strong analytical skills and creativity. My strong work ethic, refined in the military, has created an obsession to learn as much as I can about software development.
My strengths lie in having the toolset that makes full-stack development possible. I have the creativity and imagination required for front end/UiUx development, combined with the analytical problem-solving abilities and technical know-how needed for a back-end developer.
Coding is art. I look at a blank screen and see infinite possibilities, similar to what I imagine a sculptor sees when looking at clay. Your code is the direct result of your imagination and creativity. The complexity of coding humbles you. It forces you to think and adapt- to shift perspective and reframe. Coding is constantly shifting and evolving, forcing you to do the same. Then, when it all comes together, that feeling of accomplishment is why you love to code. But you only allow yourself to feel this way briefly– because while it is true you have accomplished your initial goal– the real work begins to make it better.
