I'm all about good music, food, weather and hanging with ambitious people from all backgrounds! I've been a big technology enthusiast since my youth in Brockton, Mass, fortunately for me I've always had a computer and random gadgets around my household. I'm also a fan of the Boston Celtics, Boston Red Sox, and New England Patriots. I'm an alum of Thayer Academy '03 (College Prep), New England College '07 (Computer Information Systems - Graphic Design), and Brandeis University '11 (MS: IT Management - Medical Informatics). I'm currently enrolled in the Stanford University Advanced Computer Security certificate program for working professionals and also making my way through the Udacity Android programming nanodegree.

I enjoy traveling, I've been all over US , Mexico and parts of Central America. I'm a fan of Southwest Airlines, moving away from American Airlines slowly but surely. you can usually find me by the exit row (6'8"). I'm looking forward to more international travel and visiting places such as the Cape Verde islands and also Nigeria, where my family is from in the next few years. Rosetta Stone is helping me prepare.

Outside of travel, during my free-time I like to roam the DFW Metroplex, build computers, program, play around with cloud instances (AWS and DigitalOcean), stream movies, watch TV (Homeland, Home to Get Away with Murder, Game of Thrones, and Tyrant), watch Youtube (Linus Tips and various room tour PC projects), read books (mostly tech and investing), browse Reddit (tech stuff), exercise, play retro video games and volunteer. There’s a ton of things to do in this area.

Lastly, I'm very fortunate (thanks to support from teachers, coaches, friends and family over the years) and I take nothing for granted. I work for everything that I have and I make a concerted effort to help others reach their goals. I'm happy to say I'm a product of not only the city of Brockton, MA but also a single parent household. My Mom taught me young the value of education, giving back, understanding my place in the world and the impact I could have on others due to visibility (size and abilities). I've never been able to blend in, since you can always see me from a mile away but that has helped me get to the place I am today. I started out at IBM (actually trained in Dallas then moved back to Boston) but I'm now at Sabre!
