Originally focused on working with Special Needs individuals as a career after school, computers and programming were only a hobby.
After numerous years working with disabled and handicapped individuals, I attained a high level role as a Program Director of five Group Homes for severely developmentally disabled individuals. However, after 14 years in this field my hobby turned into a career, and my path as a full-time IT guy started.
Currently, I work full-time as an IT Supervisor and part-time as an independent IT Consultant/ Engineer.
