Web Designer, Software Engineer, Programmer

The kind of jobs I am interested in range from designing and building Web pages from the ground up, to working for a Software Engineering firm, and running the gambit in-between the two with programming in general. I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes from building something amazing with nothing but keystrokes on a computer. This is the reason I got into the field: to see what amazing things I can create.

My credentials range from having a formal engineering background and all of the problem solving skills that go with that, as well as skill set of several programming languages under my belt, including Python3, C, C++, and Matlab, and I am currently learning Perl. Soon I plan on learning more Javascript to improve my Web design skills.

The feeling of accomplishment for a job well done is enough to keep me working well into the night if need be to make a deadline with the absolute best product I can produce in the time given. I work well in a team with designers, including a few projects with graphic designers, as well as with other programmers/ software engineers. I am also patient and willing to slowdown and explain everything a client might need to know so they can receive the best product we can produce for them.

 

My goal is to start a career in the Software Engineering field.

Basic Computer Repair

I am capable of repairing most modern desktop computers as well as diagnosing the problem of nearly any modern laptop or desktop. I can fix most software problems with any computer. I can fix hardware problems with most/ if not all desktops, and some hardware problems with laptops. I am currently learning how to better repair laptop hardware. I do all the repairs for my friends and family, short of actual board repair (I would rather replace a damaged piece then try to repair the broken chip).

People To People Seal

People to People

My junior and senior years of high school I was selected to participate in the People to People student ambassador program which was started by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956. It sends promising students to other countries to help improve our country’s image abroad by showing the world the best young minds our country has to offer. I was accepted into the program after many intensive interviews, for my integrity and leadership skills.
