Can you tell us a little about your background?

I was born and raised in Georgia and recently graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a bachelor’s in Computer Science. 

What is something unique about you (a fun fact) that few people are aware of?

I consider myself a bit of a handyman, as I enjoy fixing and maintaining things around the house. For example, I’ve taken on tasks such as repairing leaks and addressing other maintenance issues as they arise. I find it satisfying to take on these tasks myself and learn about how simple a repair could be and enjoy the feeling of accomplishment that comes from successfully completing a repair.

What is your favorite pastime?

I have a diverse range of interests that keep me occupied, including watching Anime, playing video games, and spending time in nature. However, I must admit that TikTok has been taking up a lot of my time lately. Despite its addictive nature, I find the app to be a fun and engaging way to discover new trends and connect with others who share similar interests. That being said, I recognize the importance of finding a balance and making time for other activities as well.

Do you have any tv shows that you are currently binge-watching?

At the moment, I’m watching My Hero Academia, an anime series that follows the journey of a boy born without superpowers in a world filled with superheroes. The show shows his path to becoming the number one hero and the challenges and obstacles he faces along the way.

Which fictional character would you most like to swap lives with and why?

If I were to pick, I would definitely trade lives with Ash Ketchum from Pokemon because the world of Pokemon is simply awe-inspiring, and the thrilling experiences he has are incredibly fun.

If you were trapped on a deserted island, what are three items you would want to bring with you?

Fishing rod, fire starter, and an RV for a place to stay with AC. 

How did you get started in your industry?

My journey in software development began long before I even knew what it was. As a kid, I was fascinated by computer games and knew that I wanted to work in the technology industry. Fortunately, my high school offered a computer science course that introduced me to coding through interactive graphical components that allowed me to control characters. This experience sparked my interest in pursuing a degree in computer science.

What drew you to CapStorm?

From the very beginning of my interaction with CapStorm, I was immediately drawn to their passion for their product. During the interviews, I felt like I was having a fun and engaging conversation rather than a formal Q&A. This enthusiasm for their work is what really set CapStorm apart from all the other companies.

What advice would you provide to someone interested in your field?

In the world of technology, there is always something new to learn, so having a love for learning is essential. Just like any other field, software development is filled with intelligent and capable individuals. If you can find joy in the process of learning and growing, success will naturally follow.

What are your goals for the next six months?

Over the next six months, I’m looking to make several improvements to various aspects of my life. My goals include enhancing my skills as a software developer, leading a more active lifestyle, and exploring new hobbies and interests. I’m excited to see where these changes will take me and am committed to putting in the work to achieve them.
