About Me

I am a 21 year old Software Engineer, currently attending the University of Central Florida, pending a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science. It is my ultimate dream in life to make change, to leave a positive mark on our universe through the development and deployment of innovative technology. It is my objective to utilize my knowledge of software and computer systems to contribute to the design and maintenance of secure, reliable and scalable software applications.

Though I strive everyday to make positive contributions to Computer Science, the most important aspects of my life wouldn't be considered of planetary scale. I most enjoy spending time with family and friends, allowing the Italian in me to shine through the appreciation of good food, and pushing the limits of exciting innovation down the highways of Florida, in my Nissan 370Z.

I have experience developing and deploying enterprise-ready web and mobile applications, and I specialize in development on the Platform. My enterprise development experience encapsulates both waterfall and agile environments, being a member of the first team in Siemens to implement the Agile methodology. I have been writing code professionally for a little over 5 years and I am most fluent in Java and Salesforce Apex, PHP and HTML5/CSS/JavaScript,jQuery and VisualForce. I enjoy creating cloud solutions and integrating third-party systems. I have experience deploying mobile applications on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

The bulk of my career has expanded my experience within a CLI, being most fond and well versed in the Linux operating system. I have designed and managed many virtualization clusters and shared hosting, cPanel instances. Conversely, I have constructed networks harnessing the power of the Microsoft Windows Server platform for Small to Medium sized businesses.
