About Me

Who am I? I am an energized millenial with a work ethic taught through a family of successful individuals. While focused on technology I enjoy containers, Amazon Web Services, several coding languages and so much more. When I am trying to take a break from the crazy technology world, I enjoy hiking, camping and hanging out with my dog Casey! My background of life and technology experience has shaped me into who I am today.

Education

North Carolina State University

B.S. in Business Administration / IT Concentration May 2016

While at NC State, I wanted to be connected to people but I had a passion for IT. I chose my program to learn something new while keeping up with IT that I had been tinkering with since I helped run my grade school computer lab at the age of 8. Attending this school grew my thoughts and gave me a diverse and rich experience.
