My road in life took a while to figure out.
Almost dropped out of High School for poor grades, got into a college / high school program. Graduated.
Didn't know what I wanted to do, so I stuck around community college taking classes.
Tried art classes, didn't do so well (Still a hobby of mine).
Applied to architecture school, didn't get in.
Took architecture classes. Dropped them.
Quit school for a year and worked a desk job.
Went back to school to get a BS in Computer Science in order to transfer to an architecture program.
Fell in love with programming.
Keep following my journey

Day to Day

A great day at work starts with a cup of coffee! Then I go into my shared office and begin programming. There are many tasks that need to be done to complete a software such as checking for bugs, adding features, and ensuring efficiency. Most of the time I will continue working on a task that I have already started. Whenever there is a problem I need help with, my coworkers are there and we collaborate on a solution. At the end of the day, we share our progress and set goals for the next day.
