I am an experienced software engineer and network engineer from the Greater Philadelphia region. I started HTML development and PHP programming at a young age and recently began expanding my abilities. I have been developing Java applications professionally for the past two years and have been rapidly expanding my knowledge of other programming languages. During my time as a Java developer I have designed, implemented, and supported enterprise web applications. Recently, I have been using Python, Groovy, Node.js, and MongoDB in an attempt to diversify my skill set. The positive feedback I get from my applications is very rewarding and I strive to create high quality applications that are easy for people to use.
One of the most gratifying experiences from programming comes in the form of solving problems. I enjoy solving problems and I do it well. The feeling of accomplishment when you complete a project that you have been struggling on is truly rewarding. I am drawn to the perfectionist nature of software development; It needs to be done right in order to work as intended.
I am the type of person who takes things apart to figure out how something works so it should come as no surprise when I say I like gears, motors, motherboards, and wrenches! I perform my own vehicle maintenance and build my own computers. I find excitement in building things from scratch and I am the type of person that would rather repair a broken item than buy a new one. Finding out what makes something tick is exciting to me.
A practitioner of Muay Thai is known as a nak muay. I currently train several days a week at an advanced level with Nak Muay Gym in King of Prussia. I am very passionate about Muay Thai and it has taught me a great deal about discipline and hard work. I enjoy practicing martial arts and found that I can apply principles learned here to all aspects of life.
