I love all things tech...hardware, software, code, you name it. Apple began my journey into technology and infused my passion for it. From rocking an iPhone and an Android simultaneously, to building my own PCs and modding retro Mac Pros. I have also wandered into the world of media with graphics design and video editing proving to be a part-time creative outlet. And now, I'm a full time developer.
