My Associates of Applied Science in Computer Network Systems helped establish a base for practical, real-world experience. The journey started with web design for small businesses and progressed to a focus on marketing, data analysis, and security.

Having entrepreneurial experience means I understand making creative use of the resources you have on hand, running a department like a micro business, and keeping in mind the concerns of upper management. Ensuring timely deliverables with meaningful, positive impact is top priority.

I enjoy participating in IT, security, and management conferences in the Midwest and contributing to various projects on GitHub. Personal hobbies include outdoor activities and the occasional woodworking or CNC router project.
