InternshipCo-opLong Term Employee

I hail from small town USA and have transferred to software engineering and web developement after a decade of law enforcement work. I have a passion for automating complex tasks and simplifying intricate problems, especially when it helps others. I began coding back in the days of MySpace and every few years, my passion has been reignited and I learn something new. I learned during that time that I enjoy helping others in any way I am capable of helping, whether its an umbrella on a rainy day or a simple API website for someone with a special interest.

Ideal Workplace Values

I fully believe that if I have the ability to help, I should, and that has lead me on an amazing journey that has taught me more than I could ever imagine. I have learned compassion comes in so many different forms and I am committed to pay it all forward whenever I can.
