About me🙋‍♂️

Me:
An Android Developer who took the long but scenic route in finding what they absolutely love doing; Android Software Development.

I left NASA to study full time at University of Maryland for a degree in Mechanical Engineering. After taking an introductory coding class, I was hooked.

I've always been into building my own computers, networking, running Linux boxes/VMs/Docker containers for various services, writing scripts and some minor python programs, etc. But something clicked and I could not ignore it.

Being limited only by my imagination, instead of a piece of paper, was too tantalizing of an opportunity to pass up. So, I turned all of my attention towards Software Development and haven't looked back.

Capable:
Have both supported and led in team environments. Extremely fast learner, picking up on new skills and information easily. Accomplished in developing and implementing solutions to complex technical problems.

Experienced:
Graduate of Lambda School's Android Development program. Dedicated, creative and innovative professional with seven and a half years experience in Naval Aviation as a technician, and two and a half in spaceflight at NASA as a technician.

Interested:
Android app development, Privacy, Security, Bitcoin, carpentry, metalworking, automotive repair, computer networking, computer hardware, electrical systems and design, CAD design, snowboarding.
