After graduation, my family gifted me a large sum of money to take some time off and study. So, between the beginning of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 I had traveled across the states and all over the continent. Since being back in the Atlanta area, I’ve started my own wood working business to have income while I search for an entry level position within the US. I’ve been relearning what I did in school, new languages, and new concepts that pertain to the IT industry. I’ve always been put into leadership positions due to being a hard working individual, my work ethic, timeliness, maturity, and accountability. I am someone you can rely on, you can trust, and you can be sure will do what he can to get the job done.
