  • My Education

    Associates in Science - Digital Arts, Media, & Interactive Web Design, w/ Honors. St. Petersburg College, 2013.
    In the Spring of 2003 I began working on a degree in Computer Science at St. Petersburg College, Florida. While attending classes focused on Network Management, I became interested in web development, so I began building my own websites, while developing organic and PPC search engine traffic campaigns. In 2010, I returned to St. Petersburg College and received a degree in Interactive Digital Media and Web Design.

    Associates in Science - Programming & Systems Analysis, w/ Honors. St. Petersburg College, 2014.
    Immediately after earning my first degree, I began working towards a second degree in Programming and Systems Analysis, with focus on C#/Open Source development.

    The art of self education through online resources.
    I read all the time. I utilize a multitude of web development resource websites to keep up with rapidly changing technologies. Beyond formal education, I spend most of my free time learning new development skills by reading developer blogs or watching online video tutorials at websites like Lynda.com, DevelopPHP.com, and w3schools.com. I am constantly searching the web for information that will continue to expand my web development skill set.
