About Me

Description

I am a software developer that lives in Gastonia, NC (near Charlotte, NC). My passion is in all kinds of computer programming, such as web development, automation/scripting, desktop/server applications, and even mobile applications. I’m also an Android enthusiast, avid golfer, and a big Carolina Panthers fan!

I started web development when I was still in high school because I originally wanted to start making a hobby website with some friends. This eventually led to the realization of my love to for writing code. I spent several years learning the basics and playing around with some server sides languages such as PHP. By the end of college, I had built three different hobby websites for fun. It has been several years now, but I am skilled in several different languages and still learning more every day from Microsoft MVP, open source advocates/projects and PluralSight!
