I was born in Adrian, Michigan and raised for the first part of my life in Perrysburg, Ohio and all of my secondary days were spent in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I began my college career as a Computer Science major and hopped majors many times before finding my passion. I graduated from Eastern Michigan University in 2012 with a degree in Secondary Math Education and a minor in Computer Science Education.
I initially moved to Summerville right after graduating and spent a year teaching Algebra 1 at Ashley Ridge High School. From there I wanted to get some experience in the IT/Programming industry with the end goal being a return to teaching. I spent the last two years as a Head Developer at a local software company called Celerity LLC which specializes in Electronic Medical Record systems for small substance abuse and mental health clinics. In that role I gained experience with programming in C, networking, and overall troubleshooting on a grand level. I look forward to sharing my experiences and perspective with my students.
In my free time I am the consummate nerd! I love video games, console and PC, and will have a Xbox Live and PSN login specifically to share with students later on the year. Before moving down to South Carolina I enjoyed Snow Boarding, Camping, and Disc Golf. I still need to identify and some outdoor activities to get into down here.
