I left a lucrative career in consulting for defense contracting companies to pursue my passion for software development. Making my dream a reality involved years of schooling and living like a pauper, but I finally graduated with a BS in Computer Science.
I'm now pursuing my master's in software engineering and working full time as a software engineer. I couldn't be happier. My career path is what I made it. I wanted to be a developer, so I worked to be a developer and achieved the goal which has brought me unending satisfaction.
I enjoy hanging out in places like this solving problems and helping others to learn. When I learned such resources were not so readily available and I enjoy helping others.
