Interests

Apart from being a technologist, I enjoy spending time with my family, we love taking trips to Puerto Rico and spending a few days hanging out on the beach, eating the food, and soaking in the sun. I also enjoy going to auctions and searching for hidden treasures where there is a possiblity of turning 1 buck..into 2. When stuck at home during the upstate NY winter months, I enjoy playing cards with friends and watching movies. I was born in NYC and lived there until I was a teenager, then moved around for a few years with family until I made some friends upstate NY. I came for a visit and ended up moving here where I met my wife.

As soon as I step into my home office I spin my tech hat around and spend time learning new technologies, building small websites, and experimenting with code. I am currently studying for multiple AWS Certifications.
