I grew up In Lowell Massachusetts, but currently living in Nashua NH.

What skills or accomplishments have you attained, that set you apart?

Currently, I’m studying for an associate’s in Information Technology & Cybersecurity at Middlesex Community College in Lowell, MA. Prior to pursuing a degree, I served in the U.S. Army for four years as an Infantryman. I was always helping my fellow soldiers with anything IT-related while serving and that is what sparked my interest in IT as a career.

What was your first memory of using computers?

My first memory of using a computer was when I was 8 years old playing Command & Conquer on my dad’s old Compaq PC. Since then, I’ve begged my parents for a “supercomputer” each year for Christmas.

When you’re not found in front of a computer you are…?

If I am not in front of a computer, I am usually at the gym or hanging out with friends and family.

What was the last great book you read?

The last great book I read is called “The Way Forward” by Robert O’Neill and Dakota Meyer. This book is great for self-development, the authors are both combat vets and they take the lessons learned from their experience in combat and turn them into life lessons that everybody could use.

If you could go anywhere for an entire month, where would you go?

If I could go anywhere for an entire month I would go to Italy or Greece. I would love to enjoy the food, talk to the locals, and visit the famous museums and monuments. The Colosseum in Rome would be top on my list.

Favorite sports teams?

All Boston sports teams are my favorite: Patriots, Bruins, Celtics, and RedSox.
