Since 2004 my journey with technology has spanned across various areas including all major platforms, adaptive hardware and software, mobile devices and commercial networking equipment used in production environments. I began at an early age disassembling very old computers in a spare room in our home and by 2007 I was enrolled in a half day vocational school for computer networking along side high school classes. By this point, I had several computers lined up across multiple desks in my bedroom and had been dabbling with Linux and its very earliest forms of accessibility applications for the blind.
By 2009 I had graduated with two diplomas, both a regular high school diploma and a certificate of completion from Eastern Center for Arts and Technology. Along with achieving honor-role multiple years in a row, I received elective credit for writing and coding training materials for elementary school students for using a Braille notetaking devices.
