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

Steven Wakefield

Bio

My name is Stephen Wakefield and I am a Software Developer. While being an office manager for three years, I was mentored by a Senior Developer in HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, PHP and MySQL. I applied what I learned by building a resource site for the company I was working for, as well as a personal portfolio site (StephenWakefield.com). I found that I have a great passion for problem solving and tinkering with code. I get satisfaction from creating code that works and turning it into more efficient code. I believe that with dedication and creativity anything is possible.                               Read More

I grew up in the Kansas City, Missouri area and was homeschooled as a kid. While in high school, I worked part-time with a drywall company and in food services. After graduating high school, I worked full time at my family’s drywall company and pursued my hobbies on the side. After a while, I realized with drywall I was just going through the motions and not taking time to challenge myself, so I decided to pursue a career change.  I remembered trying code academy as a kid and enjoying learning the basics of HTML. I decided to look at a school for coding and found Centriq.Read More

“For most of my life I have lived and worked with technology.  I spent the last decade in the cell phone industry where I learned many different skills that are invaluable to what my future holds. I learned to listen, to problem solve, and to be client-oriented. Not only did I work in sales, but I spent a lot of my career in management and training. During these times, I learned how to motivate and lead, and how to communicate and instruct people. These years strengthened my love for technology and because of that, I felt the need to move on and gain a deeper understanding of how things worked.Read More

“I am married to my high school sweetheart with an eight-year-old son, and a daughter on the way, due in December. Our family also includes two dogs and two cats.  I am originally from Nebraska, but my family moved to South Carolina when I was nine.  After marrying my husband, his career in the army took us to Fort Bragg until 2010, and then to Fort Leavenworth.  In our spare time we enjoy playing games, including everything from board and card games to video games. We also like to take time to do things outdoors – any adventure is a good adventure.Read More
