About Me


I am a husband to a wonderful wife and a father to two amazing children. I love spending time with my family and making memories together. I love the outdoors, wildlife, and nature. My career interests would be with an organization that helps people in reaching their goals. I genuinely like helping people any way possible. I enjoy bringing positive energy to my team and to being helpful where I can be. My most recent accomplishment of successfully completing Codeup's Full Stack Web Developer Program was huge for me as I had no previous experience in this field. I wanted to make a generational change and take a leap of faith. Through much effort and the support of my family this goal was accomplished.
