I currently serve as a mentor through Georgia Tech's alumni mentoring program. I assist current students in discerning what their passions are and how to evaluate opportunities as they near graduation. I have also managed and mentored interns. I enjoyed helping them learn about the business and how to navigate the culture in order to be successful.
I graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in computer engineering. While at Georgia Tech, I made the Dean's List several times and received 3 Office of Minority Educational Development Tower Awards for Academic Excellence. Transcript available upon request.
For my senior design project I wrote a command line executable approximately 2000 lines long using C++. In addition, I have developed engineering simulations using both C and MATLAB. I have also, participated in development in a business environment using Visual Basic for Applications and PHP in conjunction with MySQL.
The Computer Engineering program at the Georgia Institute of Technology is part of the school of Electrical and Computer Engineering and only differs from Electrical Engineering by two classes. To obtain my degree I had to study, Digital Communications, Digital Signal Processing, Basic Electrical Circuits, Advanced RLC Circuits, Semiconductor Device Physics, VLSI Design, and Electromagnetics.
I served for two years on the executive committee of my fraternity. Once as the Vice President of Operations and once as the Vice President of Professional Programming. In both positions I gave frequent presentations to large groups (50 to 100) people. Audiences ranged from other college students to executives from Fortune 500 companies. Additionally I continue to serve as a chapter advisor for Alpha Kappa Psi - Lambda Nu chapter at American University in DC where I have participated in panels for audiences of 100+.
I graduated from Georgia Tech with a minor in Spanish, and I have more than 7 years of academic Spanish experience. I am fluent in reading or writing and fully conversant when speaking. My focus in college included linguistics, Spanish for business, and literature.
I have assisted students in both high school and college by preparing them to be successful both inside and outside the classroom. During the five years I was a high school football coach, I helped 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students manage their class load and maintain high grades during football season. Also, while in college at Georgia Tech, I assisted others in passing difficult calculus and engineering courses by helping them develop their time management skills and implement effective study habits. Overall, well developed time management skills, knowing how to study for tests, and - most importantly - knowing when to ask for help are critical skills for all students.
I have developed several macros and add-ons for MS Excel using Visual Basic for Applications. Of the three tools I have developed, all were greater than 500 lines of code and two exceeded 1000. These tools helped facilitate data automation, manipulation, and report generation while I was employed at the Lane Company as a System Administrator in Atlanta, GA.
