(an ever-evolving work-in-progress)
LAST UPDATED: 07/06/2021
I follow my dreams, which has most recently led me to the island of Miami Beach, where I work remotely for (29) hours per week as a Data Science & Web Development Tutor for hundreds of students at dozens of colleges/universities — such as UC Berkeley, Columbia, and Georgia Tech!
In my free-time, I invest another (20+) hours per week building into existence my own custom software solutions as a full-stack software engineer — mobile app developer, web developer, data analyst, dashboard designer, and machine learning engineer.
Having run in several half marathons, I regularly go jogging with my Transylvanian Hound (Brady) for long distances at fast speeds in hot temperatures.
For as long as I can remember,
I’ve deeply enjoyed creating and organizing.
It started as a kid with creating and organizing a wide variety of extracurriculars in high school,
which evolved into creating and organizing a couple of local small businesses,
which taught me to create and organize websites and creative tech projects for clients.
Nearly ten years ago, after graduating from high school, I attended Georgia Southern University to earn my Computer Science degree. After two years of university, I created and organized my own landscape design business (instaSod.com) and professional Christmas lighting business (CustomizedChristmasLights.com) — and was financially independent for three years because of it! Most of my time was spent remotely managing every digitized facet of my business because technology saves teams time and money.
However, I felt as if I was being drawn back to the tech/software industry because the scale at which I can help solve problems is far greater, due to software’s economies of scale. That’s what led me to re-embark on my Software Engineering journey.
Having built small businesses, I am magnetized by biographies about civilization’s most influential people, and have noticed certain key characteristics among them that I have concluded are components for professional success, however you may define that. These are not necessarily skills nor abilities, but they are characteristics. Skills and abilities can usually be learned very quickly! On the other hand, characteristics take time to gradually evolve in oneself — they’re more of a mindset that I’ve consciously chosen to embrace over the years…
