As a Computer Science student at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire I have learned practical programming techniques and practices. I have also gained experience in a variety of programming languages and paradigms, primarily focusing on Object-Oriented approaches in Java, but also including C++, Bourne shell scripts, Scheme, Perl, and many others. This variety has not only improved my literal knowledge of languages and programming, but has also improved my adaptability to new systems. Through my employment with Menards I have gained first-hand experience in workplace organization, customer service, and the retail system. My current goal is to work as an intern in a computer science field to gain the same kind of experience in my future field of employment.
