I attended Clearwood Junior High and Graduated from Northshore High School.  Received Bachelor's of Science degree from Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, Louisiana.  Graduated in Industrial Technology with a concentration in Design Drafting and minor in Biological Sciences.  I graduated with Honors, cum laude, and received the Dean's List six semesters, President's List four semesters as well as induction into the "Thirteen Club" honor society.  Upon graduation from Southeastern Louisiana University was accredited with National Association of Industrial Technologist (NAIT) which today is called Association of Technology, Management and Applied Engineering (ATMAE).

Constructed my first computer from scratch (case, motherboard, CPU etc.)  Self-taught many computer related software and hardware usage including but not limited to: MS Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Adobe Photoshop, GIMP (No, not the Pulp Fiction one either!), HTML, QuickBooks, VP-ASP Shopping Cart, Abyss Web Server X2, Joomla!. MySQL Server, networking set-up and administration.  I have 19 years experience with AutoCAD products (Land Desktop, Civil 3D and MAP).

Was employed by Southeastern Louisiana University (SLU) Housing as a Resident Assistant II (RA)Resident Assistants are trained in various situations that may arise between residents, parents and university staff.  We were trained on how to handle volatile situations and document everything that transpired.  Enforcement of University and Housing policies was a requirement.  The RA acted as paraprofessional councelor to the residents and fellow staff.  Being an RA allowed me to continue my education at SLU with full tuition, room and board.  Being a RA is probably the best working experience any person could take advantage of.
