Profile

Since I was little I have always been drawn to technology. Whether it was prototyping projects during studies, building a 3d printer from scratch, or spending days to install linux when I was in my early teens, I was always tinkering and problem solving.

After graduating as a Mechanical Technician, I taught myself web development skills through online learning and some projects. I type approximately 95 words per minute and I have been working remotely for 3 years. I have worked as a general support person via live chat as well as various freelance jobs including web development. I have experience with hardware and tinkering since I built a 3d printer from scratch.

I am currently working on my A+ Certification and I am aiming to improve my customer service and IT skills.
