I’m a full stack web developer with a specialization in the MERN stack. As a seasoned IT professional transitioning into development, I'm currently enrolled in UConn’s Coding Boot Camp to augment my prior coding skills, which were obtained through a combination of self-directed learning and coursework from my prior place of employment - Francis Marion University.
I was fortunate to spend 8 years at FMU in a variety of roles from desktop support, to Director of Desktop Support, to Systems Administrator. I worked as a member of a team transitioning the university’s ERP solution from on-prem to the cloud based Ellucian Colleague, and was also one of a two-person team which managed hundreds of servers and virtual computer images across 2 domains in a VMWare environment.
I'm originally from South Carolina, and my wife is from Connecticut; we recently relocated to Connecticut and shortly afterwards I realized that while I enjoyed my time in systems administration, my passion lies in programming and web development.
My wife and I met in World of Warcraft! Quality family time at our house involves video games, board games, and Dungeons Dragons. If the weather is nice, you might also find me on a hiking trail that leads up a mountain or through a forest somewhere in the wilderness.
