Hello! :)

About Me

Currently, I am an undergraduate in Computer Engineering at Iowa State University. I transferred as a sophomore and am now a junior. I'll be interning at Rockwell Collins from January 2015 to August 2015. Because of this I'll still be a junior when I head back to school for the Fall '15 semester.

Favorite Games: The Legend of Zelda, Skyrim, Minecraft, Animal Crossing, Mario Kart, Super Smash Bros

THE Best Shows: Doctor Who, Avatar: The Last Airbender, House of Cards, LOST, House, That 70s Show...I could go on.

Animals: Besides all of them - horses, dogs, cats and birds are among my favorites. I have owned many fish, dogs and rodents along with a few cats. Horses are expensive, so I get my fix from volunteering at stables or riding horses I wish I owned but unfortunately do not. :(

I have experience with the following...

Languages: English and French

Programming Languages: Java, C, Python, HTML, Android and a tiny bit of C++. I would say I'm average at writing code from scratch but am excellent with testing and debugging. I have the most experience with Java and C. This is a great site for me because I'm still learning and always will be. :)

Operating Systems: Windows (XP, 7, 8), Mac (not a fan), Linux (openSUSE 11.2 - also not a fan)

Companies: Younkers (hey, money's money!) Pearson, Rockwell Collins

Colleges: Kirkwood Community College, Iowa Western, Iowa State University

Go Cyclones!!!
