I'm fascinated with technology, in which lead me to earn my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science. Through determination, dedication and hard work, I continue to strive for greatness in everything I do.

My family plays a huge role in my life! They motivate me to do better and better each day, and my biggest support cast. I enjoy spending time with my family whether it's going on family trips or sitting around and doing nothing. They have a huge influence on my life and everything I do. They have always been there when I needed them, and have helped mold me into the man I am.
I enjoy giving back to the community and helping others. One good deed always leads to another, and I'm a big believer in paying it forward. There are some people that are simply down on their luck or unable to do things due to limitations, and a little help can go a long way. I enjoy helping in whatever ways I can because it makes me feel good knowing I can make huge impacts in little ways. For previous employers, I've lead volunteering events to build comradery and create memories while helping others.
It's all about having a good time! I enjoy spending time with my wife and creating new memories, hanging out with my family and friends and enjoying each others company. I'm a huge sports fan (basketball being my favorite) so I like going to events, playing all kinds of sports and being active in general. I'm outdoorsy and enjoy hiking, fishing, going to the beach and anything else that includes water. At the end of the day, it's all about enjoying each and every day to the fullest.
