I am an Automation Engineer at Higi in the evenings I take classes part-time towards an MS in Computer Science at Loyola Chicago.
At Loyola my focus is broad and theoretical, but I am particularly interested in data science, software development, web services, data analysis/architecture and software as a service.
My background prior to 2013 is in academic philosophy, which I taught and studied professionally for several years before moving into computer science. As a philosopher, my twin foci were logic and continental philosophy; both of which have informed and significantly enhanced my study and understanding of computer science and software development.
I am interested in both professional and volunteer opportunities, as a student I am eager to collaborate with more sophisticated programmers and developers of all stripes and to contribute my time to non-profit projects where I can gain experience in web and software development.
Exceptionally detail oriented (many people say it, I mean it.)
