About Me

I've always been interested in music and technology. 

I appreciate how computers have made my life easier and would like to use the skills I've learned from them to help others. I have over five years of coding experience, eight years of web development experience, and two years of Graphical User Interface experience. In addition, I have a thorough understanding of Cybersecurity principles.

I've shared my work on social media, search engines, and popular news discussion forums. I also have Technical Support and Customer Service Experience.

Finally, I'm a skilled musician who has performed marching percussion, orchestral percussion, and keyboard percussion. I studied extensively in Marimba, Concert Snare Drum, and Timpani under the direction of Dr. Michael Haldeman, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Percussion Studies. I have over 12 years of musical experience in Piano, Percussion, and Voice.

I hope you enjoyed a sample of my work and I hope to work with you in the near future. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
