Hello World

I discovered my passion for Engineering when I was a senior in high school; typing random words into the command line of an old computer in my programming class and recording the words that did something on the screen. I'm an 80's baby, so I guess my high school saw fit to teach us BASIC, a fitting language from that era. My high school didn't receive modern computers until after I graduated, so yes I was jealous! LOL. However, it was the hand of a teacher who gave me two programming books (C++/Visual Basic) before I left for College, and that jumpstarted my career.

After graduating Undergrad, I co-founded Vesta Mobile Solutions a company that provided media, entertainment, and small businesses the ability to engage with their users through text messaging. Concurrently, I also began my graduate education at UCLA. During my tenure at UCLA, I learned so much about leadership, persistence, and drive. I now take those characteristics and use them to create solutions that will change the world.

These are a few of my favorite things:
Sailing
Entrepreneurship
Basketball
Gym
ATV/Motorcycle Riding
Becoming Wiser
Becoming Smarter
Being a Family Guy (In the Near Future)
