Education

Education

Summary

Detail-oriented programmer and troubleshooter with a passion for fixing things that are broken and understanding the reasons. Specializing in C# on the desktop and PHP on the Web. Interested in enhancing existing systems, fixing/addressing anything to do with programming or software products, and not afraid to get hands dirty.

Interest

My main interests are in computer programming (particularly debugging and fixing things that are broken) and in learning new programming tricks and information.

I also love studying languages, and I speak three fluently, and one (French) almost fluently. I hope to one day apply both of these skills together. Maybe as a developer for international Web sites, or an internationalization consultant. Guess we will see!
