Welcome to my web page! The horizontal menu bar provides navigation to my repository of tutorials, classwork assignments, lecture notes, and reference materials utilized during my coursework at TriCounty Technical College as a Computer Science major. The vertical menu bar provides navigation to my personnel attributes and documentation for prospective employment opportunities.
I am currently a full-time student at TriCounty Technical College majoring in Computer Science with emphasis on computer programming. I am employed part-time with a local retail grocery store while attending college. My career goal is focused on earning my associates degree and obtaining employment in computer programming for the E-commerce industry.
I am also a registered Land Surveyor in the state of Georgia. I earned my associates degree in Civil Engineering in 1996, and earned a one year certificate in Land Surveying in 2001. This degree and certification allowed me to take the required state exams to become a licensed Land Surveyor. I have 25 plus years in these career fields.
These career fields introduced me to personal computers in the mid-eighties. Prior to this I manually drafted (pen & paper on vellum & mylar) in the Architectural, Land Surveying and Civil Engineering fields. I began using AutoCAD when the program could be launched from a 5.25” floppy drive and a large hard drive was 10 megabytes. Since that time, I have installed, utilized, customized, and trained personnel in AutoCAD and AutoCAD third party applications.
Prior to networking, I served in information technology roles servicing stand-along personal computers. I installed, built, and repaired personal computers for many of my employers. I also installed software and trained personnel as required.
I have also pursued computer programming since the first versions of BASIC included with MSDOS running on early IBM personal computers. I have developed Civil Engineering and Land Surveying software using BASIC, Autolisp, QuickBasic, and Turbo Pascal. I began programming hand held computers starting with the HP-41 and the Radio Shack PC-6. My most recent efforts are with programming the HP-48 and HP33. It is this passion for computer programming that has led me to begin a new career in computer programming. I am also currently self-taught in programming with Visual Basic.
From the early days of MSDOS to the current Window operating system used today, I have accumulated a great amount of expertise in utilizing all manners of word processing, spread sheet, and database applications.
