What I've Learned

Education is a journey that never ends.
Here are a few things I've learned during my travels.

Master of Science, Computer Information Systems

During this period my studies focused on advanced programming as well as software and database architecture. My capstone project was a complete triathlon training generation system deployed onto AWS Beanstalk. Work on the system included front and back-end development as well as database architecture.

Bachelor of Science, Information Technology

This degree afforded me the opportunity to learn about infrastructure, server administration and network design. The knowledge gained during these studies has been invaluable to me as a web developer who often works with cloud servers during application deployments.

Associate of Science, Multimedia Design

My love affair with digital media started here. The multimedia design program at Valencia allowed me to grow from a fine artist into a digital artist and launched my career in web development.
