Full-Stack Developer

I am full-stack developer working with a few creative companies, tech companies, and website development companies. I am a former veteran served as a Navy Corpsman. I crave learning constantly and keep learning everyday. I also have a passion for Web Security and currently pursuing the Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) designation.

Like everyone else online I enjoy posting funny cat videos and memes. I talk to parents who have high functioning autistic kids to help them cope with them better. Spend most my time watching coding videos don’t watch much TV.

Ambitions is to complete a degree in Computer Science since I’ve been programming for several years now figured that was about time now. Also plan on continuing to develop programs for businesses and consumers. In addition to learning new skills and eventually I’d like to create either a JS Library of my own or create my own computer language for use online to solve problems that could be out there. Also want to continue the Security field of programming to help penetrate networks to make them safer for companies.
