About Me

For as long as I can remember, computers and gadgets have been an interest of mine. Ever since I was born, things with wires, electricity, mechanical, and moving parts intrigued me. At about 5 years old, I got my first Dell computer. I used it for hours every day. I found that I was more interested in the hardware and software than games.

There is nothing I love more than reading and learning about a new technology that I do not have experience with, and then getting to implement it. At 13, while on vacation with family friends, they saw my travel tech bag, and asked if I could “help with the computers” at their office. And so, I was tasked with designing and implementing the network for their small business that had outgrown its 2 Dell PC’s and 802.11b/g wireless Belkin router. Since that first project, I learned that the satisfaction of learning and using a new knowledge to accomplish a useful task is unlike anything else.

To this day, my approach to projects remains the same. Once the client outlines the issues and project requirements, I analyze them to see what solutions would be best within the budget. The reason I love working on technology is that every project is different. With its own requirements, each one is a different experience and a learning opportunity.

Fast forward again, and word of my work had spread to the business owner’s friends who also had their own businesses, and pretty soon I was able to expand my services. I have personally served a large number of small to medium business’s in the Tri-State area. For the past 3 years, I have been working with my family business, Three Z IT Solutions, to help our clients with a variety of technology issues.

I am looking for a challenging position to begin my career in technology in the corporate world. My ideal roles are those that would allow me to learn and grow, and solve different problems every day, while having a meaningful, positive impact on people.
