Q. How did you get into coding…
I’ve loved coding since my first programming class in college. That soaring triumph you feel when you get your first “Hello World!” program to work doesn’t go away. I still get that buzz from coding. And from Rockstar Fruit Punch.
Q. What happens when you aren’t coding?
Prepare for Titanfall
Q. How did you decide to work at Trinity?
Their goal “to be a seamless extension of our client’s team and good stewards of their resources” really resounded with me. I was also intrigued by the opportunity to make business web apps with a broad toolset. The Trinity team is genuinely amazing – good people with integrity.
Q. Your go-to lunch is…?
Sushi – nothing better than hamachi nigiri.
