I am a first generation University Graduate and father of twins (boy and girl). My interest in Computer Science and Mathematics was a natural extension of my love of solving puzzles and fixing small electronics when I was a kid. Coming from a family with no college degrees, and a lack of support to pursue one, I was pushed to jump into the work force as soon as I could. After years of working in various fields and becoming financially stable on my own, I got married, bought a home and finally pursued my degree because my interest in the Computer Science field had never waned. Now I am in my early career working to develop internal software at Herrick.
