SUMMARY
I studied computer systems engineering (Light Current - Electronic) because as a kid I loved tinkering with computers. My academic record is a strong endorsement of my passion and abilities in the Information Technology space. I am an enthusiastic student, an avid Life-hacker, and computer techie with a knack for producing paragon results with minimal resources.

To make sure I am always coding and keeping up with the latest tech and to supplement my income while studying, I develop WordPress websites on the side, one of my latest projects is for a car dealership and can be viewed @ Inspectacar Lifestyle Motors. As a side-project, all the work is my own. To keep my skills sharp I study courses that interest me on the MOOC platform edx.org. I also make time to help my peers with their design projects.

When I’m not reading all of the Internets, or trying to download it, or figuring out which mod is causing my Android to boot-loop, I’m that guy at the mall with a book...
