SCROLL

At the intersection of Information Technology and Business

Introduction

My approach to empowering
the tech brands of tomorrow.

Academically educated in business administration, practically educated in digital marketing and cybersecurity. My propensity for self-learning empowers organizations that I am a part of to thrive. My varied skill set makes me a formidable candidate for any intermediate or management level role in IT, specifically I would like to work in cybersecurity sales due to my mix of technical knowledge and sales results.

Education

Combined Master of Science in Information Systems and Operations Management (ISOM) with a concentration in Information Technology

Through taking three intensive sixteen credits I was able to nearly complete my Bachelors degree in half the time. My hard work paid off because I was accepted into the Master of Science in Information Systems and Operations Management Combined degree program which lets me take masters classes during my last semesters of my bachelors.

Bachelors of Science in Business Administration

I began attending the University of Florida in Spring of 2022. I am grateful to have been awarded the Deans List Honor in my first semester. My experience so far learning from seasoned professors and networking with ambitious young professionals has been phenomenal to say the least.

Associate of Arts

I graduated from Santa Fe College in December of 2021 with my Associate of Arts. I had a business focused course list and had the privilege to speak with extremely knowledgeable professors in a small classroom size. The connections I made at SF made me a better entrepreneur and I am beyond pleased for the opportunity to have attended such a great institution.

Companies

A proven track record selling IT services

Bootstrapping a digital marketing startup aimed at improving small and medium sized businesses online presence has soldified my interest in providing proven solutions. During my seven years, I consulted on regarding various online marketing techniques such as PPC, SEO, Web Design and CRO to over 30 businesses driving over one hundred thousand dollars in additional revenue. I currently only offer hourly consultations in favor of other ventures and opportunities.

Hobbies

When I'm not working:

I love learning more about security¬† and how computers work when I’m not studying. My “daily driver” operating system is Qubes OS, a fairly secure operating system. I like Qubes since I wanted to learn more about Linux, I can dive straight into a notoriously hard OS to work with. Since I learn by doing, before Qubes I knew little about desktop Linux but now I have Fedora, Debian, Arch, Kali and even Windows 7 and 10 running on one Thinkpad P50 thanks to QEMU and Qubes’ security by compartmentalization.
