Skilled at self-educationThe majority of my education and skill development has been self-directed. While classroom education is useful, I believe it is imperative to continually educate oneself in order to keep up with the constantly changing environment of technology. I use my imagination to conceive challenging projects then take advantage of all resources available to bring the project to completion. Beyond technology, I am also interested in science, history, art, music and philosophy.
