Targets

I am primarily interested in a telecommunications-based field of work; my computer programming and video-editing skills can contribute an element of elegance. I seek an occupation that not only exploits my ability to write exhaustive pieces and program efficaciously, but also one that provides an intellectual challenge where I am required to use extensive critical thinking skills.
