I was raised within a tight‐knit extended family where I learned how to make‐do, think out of the box, the importance of family and Nature. Growing up I was a budding visual artist who enjoyed sketching and drawing so much that I had thought about pursuing a career as an art teacher. In the late 1980s I received a 110 camera as a birthday gift and added a new creative hobby: photography. With my trusty 110 camera, I photographed Nature, friends, family, and family gatherings. However for different reasons I lost my creativity during adolescence...
When I resurrected my inner artist, I mainly brought back my love for photography.
I started programming in the 1990s and turned my hobby into a career in 2006. Most of my work history is on my résumé.
