About Me

I consider myself as an agile leader and a well-rounded individual that puts pride and dedication into every role and task. Typically, most people are afraid of change, but I welcome it because it has the ability to enhance everyday life. To me, the thought of change is exciting and I feel the possibilities in computer technology are endless.

I am a self-driven individual, even if the odds are not in my favor. Failure is the key to learning and passion is the door to being a developer. I have an urge in wanting to make a difference in the world and one day, my dream will come true. My motto is: I can get a pay check anywhere, but there is only a certain amount of places where I can make a difference.
