Summary

I love Technology. It allows us to do so many great things and being a part of building something great is one of the most exhilarating feelings in the world. I have worked hard to educate myself in the wonderful ways of IT and development and want to expand that knowledge in an environment that will teach me new things while challenging my previous experience! I have supported many systems in my time and look forward to learning more every day.
