My Education

I am currently a freshman at NC State, intending to major in Computer Science. I plan to CODA into that department at the end of my third semester here. I hope to be part of the May 2020 graduating class.

Why I Chose Computer Science

Before beginning at NC State, I had planned on majoring in Aerospace Engineering. That is what I applied for, and did not decide to switch to CompSci until near the end of the first semester. I got a job downtown Raleigh working as a developer and immediately fell in love - the more I thought about it, the more I wanted to switch out of Aerospace. I'm not entirely sure what I want to do with this degree yet, but I hope to work a corporate job for a few years post-graduation in order to build up enough capital to leave and start my own company.
