My road in life took a while to figure out.
Grew up in Memphis, Tennessee.
When I was younger, I was really interested in the sciences, like paleontology, astronomy, and kinesiology.
After high school, I decided that I didn’t want to go to college right away and instead wanted to do something bigger with my life.
I joined the U.S. Air Force and served as a member of the Air Force Security Forces for six years, deploying for both the Operation Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom missions.
While still in the military, I attended Florida State University and earned my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.
After my military service ended, I worked as a database analyst for the Transportation Worker Identification Credential program at the Department of Homeland Security.
Participated in a coding bootcamp through General Assembly and later secured a job as a web developer for HigherVisibility, a digital marketing agency.
After seeing a need to help fellow veterans, I started Vets Who Code, a nonprofit that focuses on teaching veterans programming free of charge so they can find gainful employment after service.
Keep following my journey
