Resume

I'm a Veteran and aspiring Full-Stack developer. I joined the Army to serve our country as an Intelligence Corps member, and later instructor, at the U.S. Army Intelligence Center. While employed therein, I came to operate a variety of complex technologies, such as lie-detectors and bio-metric recognition as well as intelligence analysis software. I saw how useful these tools were in minimizing the loss of human life, and was intrigued as to how they were created, because I did not yet possess the skills to develop them myself.
 

I earned my Bachelor's of Science in Network Systems and Data Communications from Keiser University, while simultaneously working in the tech industry as a Network Support Technician at Comlabs near the NASA's Kennedy Space Center. After I scratched my hardware itch, I began focusing more on software development as my area of specialization. I started as a self-taught developer, picking up HTML, then CSS and JavaScript, before turning to Object-Oriented Languages of Java and Python. I learned Java at university and I began Python as self-taught, but became very proficient in that language, as well as JavaScript, both in a full-stack capacity, at coding boot camp.  I began learning SQL in university but the boot camp really cemented my understanding of that language through practice. Now, I'm a full-stack developer, having developed dozens of applications in Python and JavaScript, implementing CRUD, MVC and RESTful principles and technologies,
