Personal Journey

From a young age, I felt a deep passion for software engineering. I started learning Python on my parents' old computer when I was just 12 years old. In college, I followed my calling to work in full-time ministry, which has been an invaluable experience. However, my passion for software engineering has remained constant, and I am now pursuing a career that aligns with my interests and allows me to leverage my skills and creativity.

My journey as a software engineer is complemented by my expertise in lighting design, where I combine creative vision with technical skills to create impactful visual experiences. These roles underline my passion for merging technology with artistic expression. Off the clock, I treasure my time with my wife and our daughter, who inspire me daily to build a prosperous and stable future for our family.
