A Career Change, Hard Work, and a Bit of Luck

After quite a large career change, I returned to university, and immediately pursued a Student Hourly position at my school. I was working mostly in the media production space and developing distributed education technologies.

I transitioned to custom application development, and was offered a Professional Staff position at Indiana University. I've since embraced several unique types of challenges in private sector including financial, education, and medical industries.
