About Me:

I am a Software Engineer and Developer with many years experience by day, and a freelance Tech Mentor after hours.

I have Computer Science degrees, a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree from the Number One Computer Science School in the Nation, and the Number Six Computer Science University in the Nation.

US News and World Report Computer Science University Rankings.

I have also been a well rated teaching assistant in these universities, a lab assistant, and self-paced tutor, teaching technical subjects, handling office hours, and leading discussion sections with technical university students from top Computer Science schools as my students.

I love to learn and read about many different things, including history, sociology, psychology, finance, economics, business, marketing, the stock market, technology, demographics, and trends. I love to innovate, create, and think out of the box, explore, analyze, and play with ideas. I believe learning tech means doing, and creating projects for yourself to move forward.

Can you imagine having you and your children having a Tech Mentor with all this experience at a very reasonable rate?
