Where I started
When I was 12 years old, my mother taught herself how to build simple websites and Visual Basic applications. When she wasn't using her reference books, I borrowed them and fell in love with HTML.
I started working as an IT intern after graduating from high school and worked my way up through Help Desk to a Systems Administrator position that allows me to do a little bit of everything; from desktop support to networking and server support to project planning.
Where I am
Systems Administrator, Nitto BioPharma, Inc.
Handling most of the IT operations for a pharmaceutical research and development company.
Learning the ins-and-outs of raising two tiny human beings and how to work on little sleep.
Building hobby projects in PHP (often utilizing Laravel). Check out my latest project, Alphonic!
Where I'm going
Family will always be my first focus. With my kids growing up, I will focus on finding opportunities to teach them and encourage their curiosity.
Professionally, I hope to focus more on long-term projects and less on desktop/server support. In the meantime, I'm working towards a PMP certification in the near future.
