About

Allow Me To Introduce Myself.

Profile Picture

I'm a University of Massachusetts Lowell graduate who is motivated and excited to start his career. Before graduating, I decided to partake in General Assembly's Web Development Immersive program. GA taught me the skills needed to be considered a Full Stack Web Developer.

Backstory

My mother bought our home's first computer when I was ten years old. She had no clue how to use a computer, so I ended up teaching her the basics. Before I knew it, she was surfing the web like a pro. That experience made me fall in love with computers and software.

At UML, I was a Criminology and Justice Studies major with a concentration in Information and Technology and a minor in Business. It was there that I learned how to create simple webpages with HTML and CSS, but I wanted to learn more.

I personally believe that software has the power to bring people together. Social media apps like Facebook and Twitter connect people in ways that were not possible a few years ago. I want to be part of this revolution and contribute as much as I possibly can.
