About Me

My computer career started in 2002 when I decided to use my G.I. Bill to pursue a degree. Five years later and while working full time as a Civil Engineering Technician, I graduated from Purdue University with a B.S. in Software Engineering. I have already done quite a bit of programming by then, but the thought of taking it to the next level was rather daunting. I was gainfully employed with the same company for the last 7 years so it was not an easy decision, but in the end passion trumped security, and my new career became official.

Since then, I have been lucky with opportunities that continuously took me to new levels. Starting out with DremanaProductions, I got a tremendous amount of on-the-job training and the opportunity to work on high caliber sites, such as Alex Jones' PrisonPlanet.tv. To this day I continue to work with Grace and Andre form DremanaProductions to deliver high quality sites and apps.

In 2009, I went to work for ClickStreamTV, where I really cut my teeth in web development. In the close to 4 years there, I advanced from programmer to senior developer to programming manager, all while continuously being challanged to grow. This was the first time in my life that I actually loved my job and couldn't imagine doing anything else. The ClickStreamTV team was extremely talented, innovative and the experience and lessons I got there were invaluable.

Last year the urge to move into a new career space was beginning to distract me to the point where I decided to yet take another plunge: this time into the mysterious world of freelancing. While I do most of my business via oDesk, I am trying to expand into other avenues. Freelancing is a challenging career path but at the same time very rewarding and broad in scope, which allows for building new skills.

That's about it. If you're still reading this, then I thank you for taking the time to get to know me. If you have an questions, please feel free to contact me. I'd love to hear from you.
