About Me

A graduate of Benedictine University with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems. I currently work at JP Morgan as a Software Engineer that specializes in delivering backend solutions to consumers.

During my free time, I enjoy to play sports. Being a competitor has given me a drive to work smart and hard. Additionally, because of this both my teamwork and leadership skills have been sharpened and incorporated with my work.
