Ever since I was a child, I have been captivated by computers and the ability of technology to influence people’s lives for the better.
After graduating from the University of Tennessee in 2014, I went to work at Celebration Concert Tours International (CCT), a group tour operator and event coordinator located in Franklin, TN. At CCT, I organized events which allowed me to travel the world as well as gain full-time experience in a fast paced office environment.
My time at CCT helped spark my interest in learning software development as a trade. I got a taste of the process through serving as the product owner and admin for a new website as well as an online trip registration and payment system for CCT. This experience helped me see that software development is something I want to do for the rest of my life.
I enjoy solving complex problems while collaborating with others to design the best solution possible. I believe that communication, empathy, pragmatism, and continuous learning are crucial traits in a good software developer. I do my best to practice each of these daily.
