My decision to pivot towards a career in software engineering was significantly influenced by the birth of my first daughter. Despite having an established career in construction management, I was driven by a desire for professional transformation. This led me to pursue a degree in Computer Science, a field that had always fascinated me.

Juggling the demands of fatherhood, maintaining a full-time job to support my family, and pursuing higher education was no small feat. Yet, these challenges only served to strengthen my resolve. Throughout my academic journey, I remained steadfastly committed to excellence. This dedication was reflected in my academic performance, culminating in my graduation from Weber State University with Summa Cum Laude honors – a testament to my hard work and determination.

The unique nature of my educational journey captured the attention of several news agencies post-graduation. My story, which highlights the challenges and triumphs of balancing family responsibilities with personal and professional development, was featured in Deseret News. Additionally, my experiences and insights were shared in a video interview with channel 4, providing an inspiring narrative for others who might find themselves in similar situations.
