Where are you from?
If there was a movie about your life, who would play you and why?
Definitely Michael B. Jordan. In most of his movies, he plays as the underdog who preserved through adversity, continued to pursue his dreams in the process, and eventually made his way to success. The energy and personality he puts into his movies in addition to the background story of most of the characters he portrays allow me to see myself in those situations and make scenes feel very relatable.
Tell us a little bit about you.
I attended Minnesota State University- Moorhead on a Track and Field scholarship studying Graphic Communications and Spanish.
What is your favorite thing to do in your spare time?
I love to run! I used track and field as a vehicle to leave my hometown in search for newer opportunities, get an education, and provide a career for myself. Running helped me through alot of times where I needed to find peace and clear my mind. Running often served as my therapy and still does even to this day! Aside from that, I love to work with diverse groups within the Fargo-Moorhead community through outreach programs and diversity offices to teach and make accessible specific resources available to the youth for a brighter future.
What’s a ridiculous fact about yourself?
I have two different colored eyes! One light brown and the other dark brown. The light brown eye is the same color as my father’s and the dark brown is the same color as my mother’s.
What part of your position provides the most value?
There are so many parts to being a Web Developer that are equally valuable, however the part that means the most to me is the client relationship. No matter what level you’re at in web development, strong communication with the client provides a stronger understanding of what solutions work best for them. I also value strong relationships with my clients because they allow the process to flow more smoothly. My goal is to keep clients reassured as much as possible and that plays a big part in my process.
