The main key is communication. If you don’t know something, then ask. If you see a problem, mention it, but with grace.


My road in life has been direct.
Thanks to my older brother, I was exposed to technology at a young age—this interest remained with me throughout my adolescence.
After high school, I entered a four-year university with an undeclared major, wanting to do as little math as possible.
After two years of being an undeclared college student, I decided to pursue a degree in computer science.
Ironically, I earned my bachelor’s degree in computer science with a minor in mathematics, despite my lack of interest in math.
During the summer of my senior year, I interned at Zenith Insurance Company, a leading agency in workers’ compensation, in the IT department.
After I graduated from college, Zenith Insurance Company ended up offering me a full-time position as a Programmer-Analyst.
Now, I am a full-fledged software developer at Zenith Insurance Company, creating websites and applications.

Problem Solving

Day to Day

As a full stack developer, I am a part of two teams: reporting and development. These deal with aspects of design, functionality, and storage of data. Some days I may be developing code or assisting the Special Investigations Unit to discover activities such as fraud while on others I'm designing layouts and analyzing performance reports. Algebra and logic are the two basic principles that apply to my field of study so I have to think critically and solve math problems on the daily.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for everyone

Don't focus on the complex systems at first. Always start with very basic problems.
