About me

I'm a former Air Traffic Control Supervisor for the United States Air Force who spent the last 7 years perfecting the craft, as well as progressing my skills as a supervisor, leader, and trainer.

I decided to make the leap into software development as I felt it was the perfect field to combine my soft skills with my personal interests and work in a more advantageous career field.
