I have taken a number of computer courses from Wake Tech, where I learned to use Linux, and program C/C++, and received certificates in 1998 and 1999. I am a Comptia A+ certified professional, and a PHP 5 Zend certified engineer. I mostly use Linux computers, and my current desktop is called Mint. Linux is a UNIX operating system clone that is composed of the Linux kernel, together with the GNU set of operating system utilities.

I work at NCSU as a programmer and spend most of my time coding in Python and JavaScript, with some PHP and Postgresql database work. This site, my independent contractor site and my web map are currently all hosted by DigitalOcean and use the web server nginx.
