I showed a strong interest in developing a website. After winning the fraternity member at a charitable auction acknowledging his technical background, I had him to show me how to build a website.
As a business student at The University of Texas-San Antonio, I took two information systems courses which focused on COBOL and C/C++ programming but ended up declaring a major in International Business because of my strong interests in working with people from around the world such as cultural norms and customs.
In 2005, I worked for Sorenson Communications as an independent contractor in the sales working with customers, installing videophone equipment, and troubleshooting the devices. Sorenson Communication is a high tech company for its recent emerging technology that caters to deaf and hard of hearing consumers. From that moment, I knew I wanted to work in the technical environment to build something and make a huge difference. Hence, I worked for the U.S. Army to launch my web development career in Italy. My software development career have launched in 2006.
Fortunately, with my background in web development as a hobbyist, I was able to apply the basic skills to software development in a professional setting. My career had motivated myself to seek further education in software engineering for master's degree and aim for higher standards in software development career.
Hobbies & Interests
I have always enjoyed snow skiing and I take advantage of every opportunity to hit the slopes whenever I could. Skiing drives me to assess on my personal fears and how to manage it because the first time I went skiing at the age of 7, I refused to go down the hill out of fear. It is the biggest lesson I learned that I do not enjoy allowing myself to have fear and hold back.
Among other hobbies and interests including outdoor activities, traveling, reading, film literature, and at last but not least, learning new development tools and frameworks that may be useful for future software development projects.
