My Journey to Software Engineering

Growing up my first love was technology with baseball coming in at a close second. I remember the first laptop that I held in my hands was a 2003 IBM Thinkpad. I was in my living room holding this laptop and simultaneously looking at my family’s TV that seemed to be from 1982. The technological gap in my living room that morning allowed me to make a decision that would change the trajectory of my life. That morning I decided that I was going to pursue a career in the technology space.

The journey has been long but rewarding, and I have gained knowledge from many different spaces and industries. From data management and sales, database design and implementation, to financial technology support, my journey thus far has been an extensive one. These experiences inspired me to attend General Assembly where I gained the skills and experience to become a full stack software engineer. Throughout all of this, one thing remains true - my love for technology continues to grow. My desire to solve problems in the world with technology increases every day. Today I continue to impact the lives around me and solve problems with the same tool that inspired me while young - technology!
