I had the opportunity to attend a few events here and there (PyNight and SQL) and have always recognized the positive benefits. Joining also gave me a little more push to attend events and learn from the community!
2: Describe the moment you decided what you wanted to do when you grew up?
I have yet to fully decide. I am having too much fun with family and work.
3: What do you do in your current work?
4: What is an expertise you have that you would like to share with others?
5: What are you tinkering with at the moment?
Developing a new app focused on helping primary grade students learn their sight words by encapsulating them in 6 mini-games using Swift, Sprite-Kit and UI-Kit and is designed for the iPad. Teachers will be able to monitor student progress, forward results to parents, and reward students for their hard work! Also converting 5 math apps from Objective-C to Swift covering over 6,000 math questions and extending their purpose with new functionality and fun!
6: What are you interested in learning?
7: What is your favorite sci-fi movie?
While I love many of the movie adaptations, my true favorites are still best in book form. Love anything by Isaac Asimov and hope that one day his Foundation series will make it to the screen.
8: If you have not lived all of your life in Augusta, where else have you lived?
First 16 years in the Midwest(IL, MO, IN), Second 16 years in Birmingham, Alabama.
9: If you could see one thing happen in Augusta in the next 5 – 10 years, what would it be?
I struggle with the Risk Boldly (except that one time I jumped out of a plane) but have always strived to always live up to my word.
