Russell Cross Centriq Feature Student STL

Bio

I began my career in banking as a Financial Analyst and progressed in my career to become the Head of Compliance. Both roles helped me develop analytical and critical thinking skills, and taught me the importance of effective communication.

My proudest accomplishment was being involved in a start-up business. It was the most stressful venture I’d ever undertaken, but it taught me the importance of customer service, time management, and effective leadership.

Throughout my career, I have always been the guy my co-workers would call on to troubleshoot their computer problems. I enjoyed this more than any other work I have ever done, and I found myself in a position where I could turn this passion into a career. With the hands-on experience I have gained at Centriq, I believe I could add value to any team.

Bio

After over nine years working with the government in the criminal justice field, including working as a Probation Officer and a Private Investigator, I decided to make a career change into something that I’m really passionate about. I’ve found that I really enjoy working with technology, from building computers to troubleshooting. After a few years of casually doing just that on my own time, I was excited to find a program that could help me turn my hobby into a full-time job.

Robert Swindler

My professional background is in sales, and I left that field to try for more fulfilling and challenging options. The logical transition was web development as it allows for endless personal growth and countless problems to overcome. I’ve learned to live by the motto, “I might not know everything, but I can learn anything.” It has been a great maxim through this track.

Christian Moore

Bio

I was born and raised in Kansas City, and grew up dreaming of being a Video Game programmer, I would write out logic for different mechanics and theories for their implementation. I was a pretty nerdy kid! Once out of school; however, I decided to take a safer route, so I took my love for engineering and dove into the automotive world with the long-term goal of becoming a mechanical engineer. I worked as a parts delivery driver, a technology guru at Honda of Tiffany Springs, then as an assembly technician at the Harley Davidson factory in KC.Read More
