Background

Summary

As a kid, I’ve been called a geek especially being the youngest of my bother and sister. I was a little bit of a nerd, and I always played video games. Growing up, I wanted to learn how to make video games. It wasn’t until college I took my first programming course at Orange Coast College and Java was the programming languaged. I remember during every semester I would primarily focus on programming (or Math) than the other class because it more enjoying than anything else. I got hooked and I wanted to learn more. I took Computer Science as my major and receive my Bachelor’s in Computer Science at California State University, Fullerton. I also earned a Minor in Mathematics since I took the Scientific/Mathematics courses. Soon after graduating, I want back to CSUF for the Masters Program part-time while I was full-time at Evisions working as Customer Support. During my Master’s Program, I was also a Teacher’s Assistant at CSUF to earn more funds. But, it wasn’t until 4 years later I was finally hired as a Software Engineer at Evisions. Fast-forward to today, I am still at Evisions as a Software Engineer II and I have earned my Masters of Computer Science from CSUF. I have been a Software Engineer for about 3 years and mostly programmed in C++ but I’ve also programmed in Python, Delphi, and JavaScript. I take much pride in my work and looking back, I am still that geek kid at heart and my family agrees. I love working with different programminglanguages, learning and using different libraries and frameworks, and solving problems from fixing bugs, adding new features or solving problems in CodeWars. I enjoy programming whether it’s for work or side projects, and I still enjoy playing video games.
