About Me

I started playing video games at a young age. This is what kickstarted my love for technology. At around the age of 5, I received my first computer. Though it was a hand me down, I was able to teach myself so many important aspects of how technology worked. I was dedicated to learning as much as I could.

At the age of 14, I began programming using Visual Basic. When I realised how easy software development could be, I fell in love with it. Without a mentor or programming class at my middle school, I was left to teach myself everything. I proceeded to teach myself C# and now consider myself fluent in Lua, C#, Java, Visual Basic. I also know a little C++ and Python.

Going into high school, I applied for the Graphics Arts and Design academy. I took two design classes and picked up the Adobe suite quickly. I now have certifications in Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign; working on my certification in Premiere Pro. At the end of my freshman year, I was approached to help out in creating the school's yearbook. I accepted the offer and here I am in my junior year: co-editor of the yearbook, and head video producer for it, where we will be utilizing Aurasma to deliver exciting video content.
