While going through a local crash course A+ Certification Program at the Delaware Skills Center,
I am the oldest of 5 and the proud father of 2 with a 3rd on the way! A born and raised Philadelphia Eagles fan with a work hard, play hard mentality, I consider myself a Jack of all Trades who unironically enjoys a friendly wager at the Poker table. One of my favorite movies of all time is The Big Lebowski to which I have derived my online alias and avatar from, "The Dude".
As an avid gamer, I have always naturally felt aligned with Information Technology. Coupled with my passion for efficiency I have fostered a mindset for automation.
In mixing the two, I have enjoyed a few Speed Runs of my favorite video games!
My current long-term game of choice is Final Fantasy XIV where I have led an amazing team of 8 raiders to numerous high-end-game victories across 3+ years! We call ourselves "Not Alone", after my personal favorite Final Fantasy, number 9.
I have been a gamer my whole life. Simple games, such as Snake and Blaster Ball, have helped me to pave the way for my journey's next road which I hope to find opportunities in the video game industry or general engineering field.
