The Q & A
Tell us about yourself:"I am a technology enthusiast who loves to learn about new and evolving tech. At a young age, I began building my own personal computers and also started exploring various programming languages while in high school. As soon as high school ended, I joined the Air Force for 8 years. During my time in the military I earned a Bachelor of Science in Information Technology. After a great experience in the US Air Force, I exited the military with an honorable discharge, activated my GI Bill and earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science at a local university while working full time. The second degree allowed me to further envelop myself in the topic I loved while being able to skip the normally associated costs, a fantastic advantage provided through military service. I currently work as a Business Intelligence Developer that provides me with a wide range of professional experience that varies from complex server management techniques to developing applications via full stack programming. I have varied experience across multiple computer programming languages that include Python, PHP, C#, Visual Basic, C++, SQL."
What brought you to teaching on Cybrary:"I originally found Cybrary through a job posting on one of those job posting sites. The job posting sounded like an exciting opportunity to take my experience to the next level by sharing knowledge on the topics I love. Before the job posting, I had not heard of Cybrary, but after some digging, I discovered that the Cybrary organization is full of talented, motivated, and passionate individuals excited to share their knowledge with the rest of the world. Once I understood Cybrary’s mission, I excitedly applied and waited for a response. Luckily a response generated rather quickly and an interview followed. I was one of the lucky individuals who applied and passed the interview process, I would be permitted to function as an instructor within the Cybrary organization. Following this news, I started developing my first instructional video series that would focus on an introduction to the SQL programming language. I recently completed the course and I’m finishing the final processes involved to get the course live on the Cybrary web site. Following the successful deployment of my first course, I intend to begin developing additional content for use on the organizational website to promote learning and mastery of the various technology elements."
