I have a Bachelors degree in history from DePaul University and am currently pursuing a Masters degree in data analytics. My blend of liberal arts with a computer science graduate degree has offered me the ability to understand technical subjects coincided with the ability to explain them with a strong verbal ability. I have experience coaching youth sports including ice hockey and flag football from ages 6-18. This has taught me valuable teaching skills that allow me to maximize my time with each student dependent upon their needs. I get great personal enjoyment spreading my interest in computer programming with young minds. In the ever increasingly automated economy, I'm confident that computer programming skills is one of the best antidotes to becoming an irrelevant participant in the workforce for the youth that will be adults in the 2030s, 2040s, and on. Being interested and staying up to date on current events in technology and computing allows me to stay on top of the programming trends and be able to differentiate between the up and coming technologies and skills versus the ones that are becoming complacent and replaced. I'm excited for the opportunity to help bring the knowledge and skills I've learned to youth in order to better equip them to become strong contributors when they reach adulthood. Let's get started!

My hobbies include scuba diving and surfing. I am new to both of the sports but am eagerly progressing in both of them. I was a college ice hockey player, though have moved on to more tropical hobbies since. I enjoy reading and learning about different computer topics online. Python is my favorite programming language, and I enjoy sharing what I know about it with others. There is a high demand for computer programming skills in the modern economy, and it excites me to be part of the force to help prepare today's youth with the tools that can best serve them and our community for when they become adults. I believe that learning computer programming skills is the best antidote to an ever increasingly automated economy. I enjoy keeping up with news and current events with technology and computers.
