From as far back as I can remember I’ve liked figuring things out. These days I satisfy that curiosity by writing code and building software that solves real problems.
My foray into the world of computing is completely incidental. For most of my teenage life I was dead set on becoming a medical doctor. In Jamaica that means getting accepted into the MBBS program at the University of the West Indies. If it was left up to me that would be the only program I applied for, but the university forces you to choose four (4) options when applying. One of those choices was computer science.
After getting into the MBBS program, the financial plan started to fall apart and I quickly realized I would have to major in one of my other options. I ended up choosing computer science over actuarial science with the flip of a coin.
Ever since that day in January 2015 when I wrote my first line of code, I’ve been in love with the discipline.
Most of the code I write is done professionally and subject to non-disclosure agreements. Other things you can find on my GitHub profile.
Even though I usually don’t finish most of my hobby projects, I decided to include them anyway because I think we can all relate.
