A Little About Me
I have lived my whole life in West Virginia. In such a small, outdoorsy state, it is a wonder that I choose technology as my passion. I consider myself a big tech enthusiast, all starting when I got my first iPod in the sixth grade. My love of technology exploded when I went to high school. Where I joined the robotics team. I was their web designer and then head programmer. The team is what jump-started my love of technology. Once I was introduced to the world of programming, I knew that is what I wanted to do, thus my decision to enroll as a Computer Science major at Marshall.
Why the Floppy Disk?
That's a great question and truth be told, I don't even know! For as long as I can remember I've always been fascinated with them. I can remember the first time I held one. It was our first computer lesson in the first grade. They taught us how to read and write files on them. I guess since then, I've developed what I call a "hopeless" love for them. I don't want to incriminate myself, but I may own many boxes of them and a USB to 3.5" floppy disk reader.
What I Do
I'm currently a developer for BrickStreet Insurance. When I'm not at work, you can find me doing a variety of things. One thing that I love to do is volunteer my free time as a programming mentor for my high school robotics team, or working on a variety of technical skills. I often find myself acting as tech support for people I know, working on my own technical projects, or learning more about web development. I currently run the robotics team's website and working on constructing a new website that is hush-hush right now.
What am I Up to Now?
I still keep up with the team site but looking for more projects. Currently, I am about to start on a new site, but it has to stay under wraps for now. I'll be sure to keep my page updated once I'm allowed to announce it!
