I am 22 years young, graduating in May 2017 and actively seeking a professional software engineering job in Austin, Texas. I frequent Java/Python for most projects, however, if the project has real-time constraints, I prefer to use C or Ada. I have dabbled in iOS as well as Android development and am a full-stack web developer. I have worked with many technologies and concepts which are all referenced in the "Skills" section of my website.
To me, there is nothing worse than code that is poorly documented, poorly written, and single-use. Throughout my academic career and professional web development career I have strived to write codes that can be used for multiple cases through the use of generics, documentation, proper indentation, and useful variable and function naming conventions.
Learning syntax is useless unless you truly know how to put it to work. I am not your typical copy/paste programmer who will find a solution to a problem online and slap their name on it. I focus very heavily on truly learning algorithms and data structures in order to insure that I will be able to solve complex solutions in the quickest, and most efficient manner possible.
While I do spend a great deal of my time working and learning, it's not all I do. I'm not a robot (that would be pretty cool). I enjoy many other things besides programming like woodworking, boxing, and gaming. You should get to know me over a beer or coffee sometime. Feel free to send me an email if you're interested in getting to know me better - I may be just what your company needs.
Sam Houston State University is where I have learned most of my computer science related concepts as well as mathematics. I will be graduating in May 2017 with a B.S. in Computer Science.

At the University of Mary-Hardin Baylor I worked on completing a few of my basic courses.
I also am tasked with making sure our pages are accessible, are SEO optimized, and have no broken links or misspellings.
As the technical student assistant for the undergraduate admissions deparment, I helped coordinate and implement a new CRM system for the university. I also wrote Visual Basic macros for Microsoft Excel in order to clean up data so it was readable, and useable by upper-management. I wrote SQL queries for Microsoft Access databases that were frequently used. I matched up test scores to students applications to help management with the decision process.
