"Programming with a People Purpose"
If there was one phrase that could give you the best perspective on who I am, I would say:"Individual success is only achieved through the number of people you can positively affect in your life."
I grew up right outside of Portland, Oregon with a great family supporting me in whatever I became passionate about in life. I was always busy and active playing sports, learning the piano, or hanging out with family and friends. Going through high school, I dedicated myself to academics and athletics, playing soccer for the varsity team, the premier local club team, and the state development team year round. Winning two state championship titles in soccer for high school and club along with my acceptance into Santa Clara University was the culmination of my life before college.
In college, I narrowed my focus of study to computer engineering, a subject that always caught my interest and would allow me to develop technical skills in an ever-growing industry, leading me to the next greatest successes in my life. As part of my college years, I joined Sigma Pi Fraternity in my freshman year and earned the position of president of our eighty man chapter by my junior and senior year. I also held the events coordinator and vice president position in ACM, the computer engineering club at Santa Clara. These positions simultaneously allowed me sharpen my leadership skills and technical skills, essential attributes to have heading into the working world.
The best is yet to come and I know my future will only get better and brighter!
The current project I am working on is for my senior design project. We call it Skoolbook! The idea behind Skoolbook was very simple and logical: we have social networks, like Facebook and Myspace, that allow us to make friend and communication socially, and we have professional networks, like LinkedIn, that connect us with people in many companies and areas of study, so why not create a network for students and teachers to communication in a virtual classroom environment to improve overall learning and retained knowledge. Details of the project will be revealed upon completion in May 2010.
