My Story

By me

I am from a small town that is east of Green Bay, where I was born and raised. I went to school there all of my life, and did a few different clubs and activities. The main one I did was boy scouts, where I got my Eagle Scout with a different troop than the one I started in. There is an article more about my Eagle Scout project here. Otherwise I did a few other activites that don't have a cool article at all, but for one we placed second at an international competition.

During my senior year of high school, I worked at the local tech college to work on and eventually obtaining a Youth Apprentiship for IT. At this time, it made me want to do IT work even more, thus resulting me to go into IT. After I graduated, I attended the same local tech college where I would work part-time either in the bookstore or IT and I would be doing school full-time. During COVID, I wasn't able to work but I still was able to do online school, sadly. I got through the online classes and graduated with two Associate degrees, one in System Admin, and the other in Cyber Sec.

After I graduated, I was hired full time at a university, where I still work, and I am a student part-time for my Bachelor's in Comp Sci with an emphasis in Cyber Sec. I hope once I have finished my degree, I am able to move into a more focus position of either System Admin or Cyber Sec.
