Education

Over the past years, I have taken my education very seriously. After graduating high school from Charles P. Allen in Bedford N.S., I attended Saint Mary's University. I spent four years working towards a Bachelor of Commerce. My major was Small Business and Entrepreneurship and through my experiences with faculty and my fellow students I learned a great deal about business and my plans for the future.

During my time at Saint Mary's, I also attended night classes at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD). I took classes in computer graphics. The classes trained me in the use of the Adobe Creative Suite. My classes included five 30 hour classes, each in a specific program. These programs included Flash, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. After completing these courses I had more than the requirements for NSCAD's Certificate in Computer Graphics.

After leaving Saint Mary's, I enrolled in the Nova Scotia Community College's Information Technology Diploma. My concentration was Programming. I got the chance to work with many languages such as PHP, C#, C++, Java, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, SQL, and VB. I also worked with many databases including MySQL, Oracle, and SQL Server.
