Featured Developer Student for August 2018
As early as 11 years old, I had been building my own computers and diving into the evolving internet as a hobby. I studied Psychology and Mathematics at the University of Kansas and initially started work as a Technical Support Specialist and had moved on to Software Testing but couldn’t stomach the notion of cubical life at such a young age. I have worked as an Arborist until I had broken my leg in a skateboarding injury in March of 2017. During recovery I picked up Mountain Biking as a low impact form of rehabilitation and have traveled across the US from KC to Oregon exploring trails along the way and back.
Q: Why did you decide to come to Centriq?
Q: What class has been your favorite so far?
A: Learning C# right out of the gate was really enticing to me. Approaching Object Oriented Programming is daunting because there are so many different languages to choose from. Trying to decide which language to invest yourself in is difficult, especially as an outsider. Learning one of the C languages was definitely important to me, and learning C# as part of the .NET stack was a welcoming challenge.
Q: What do you hope to do after Centriq?
A: A career in web development is something I had always entertained and kept on the back-burner. Now, being 110% invested in it, I’d like to work supporting the STEM industry and play a role in developing the future of humanity.
Q: What other hobbies and interests do you have?
A: Mountain biking has become a new hobby as it combines my inspirations found in natural environments with extreme sports. I still enjoy skateboarding and snowboarding. Playing music and going to concerts are a big part of my life, as well as drawing and digital forms of artwork. Video games, done properly, are great works of art in my eyes.
