"Try to learn something about everything and everything about something."
- Thomas Huxley
I grew up as a suburban kid, born and raised in Aurora, IL. The second largest city in Illinois. It was there I attended West Aurora High School and discovered my passion for programming and computer science.
I took a C++ class to learn the fundementals of programming. From there I began teaching myself. I started a software development company known as Rogue Labs at 16. It was successful to the point that I had no need for a part-time job while in school.
I ran the business until the end of my freshman year at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. That's when I sold the business to my close partner so that I could focus on my studies and becoming a young professional.
I draw a great deal of inspiration from many different types of people, from many walks of life. I truely belive what defines a persons character is how they overcome the adversity in life.
