Career Objectives and Skills Summary

My primary goal is to join a progressive company offering growth opportunities. I am a dedicated, team oriented individual with exceptional drive who will work above and beyond.  I am a self-starter, intelligent, quick, and self-sufficient.  Having strong people and social skills, I am able to supervise and manage if required.

During the course of the last two years, I have been pursing a bachelor's degree in computer science with an emphasis on human-centered computing.  I have gained considerable knowledge to contribute to the technology industry and believe my computer programming abilities have improved significantly.  

I have a strong passion for computer science, computer programming, and electronics with considerable knowledge in Visual Basics, ASP.NET, HTML/CSS, MySQL and Javascript.  My skills with Apple, Microsoft Windows, Office products and general business systems are strong.  I have gained a substantial work ethic and sense of responsibly.  I have remained in good standing with all previous employers and have excellent references.

My main hobbies include computer programming, reading, snowboarding and biking.

Current Professional Development

This year, I have brainstormed several application ideas and increased my network of technology enthusiasts/computer programmers.  During the last four months, I have extensively researched game, app, and website development, continuously learning new languages, frameworks, and tools to build software.  In the course of pursing new interest, I formed a group of highly motivated computer programmers who are interested in developing a few multi-platform applications.  We are currently in the brainstorming stage and hope to design intuitive, user-friendly and attractive services that would contribute to the sharing economy.
