I was a Computer Science major in college at the Georgia Institute of Technology. While there, I participated in a cooperative work program where I spent every other semester working at IBM's local office. I also was a TA (Teachers assistant) for entry level computer science students. This included both students who were computer science majors and also not computer science majors. I believe I was able to achieve my goal of reaching both type of students and helping them understand and learn, not just memorize lines from a book or copy and paste code for a project.

I graduated with a 3.4 GPA (High Honors) and immediately went to work for IBM as a traveling consultant. I spent two years traveling to client sites and solving issues on site. I worked with new people and new clients every time my project changed. After working for IBM, I joined a friend working for a trading company in downtown Chicago, where I learned finance and trading. I eventually went to a company that produces software for the futures trading industry. I currently do in-house programming and support for developers who need help with their applications. These experiences in my professional life have made me a good teacher.

In my personal life, I am married with a daughter and another daughter on the way. I own a house in Palatine and spend the majority of my free time working on my house, watching sports, or spending time with my daughter.
