I am a Geek, Father, Guitar Player, and Cancer Survivor from North Carolina. In 2012 I was diagnosed with stage IIIc Colon Cancer on Friday April 13 no doubt. I was 43 years old. I have successfully gone through 8 rounds of chemotherapy and 5 1/2 weeks of radiation treatments. 6 months of hell! After many doctor visits trying to find out why I was losing weight, experiencing occasional gastric pains and anemic, a CT Scan was ordered. Bingo, cancer! And in my sigmoid colon. That was a Friday, I was in surgery on Monday for 5 hours. I had an ileostomy for 9 months while my colon healed. The only thing bothering me now is Neuropathy. It worsens when it’s cold but I am alive and a survivor.
I am an experienced Software Developer focusing on ERP & accounting systems. I currently hold the role of Software Developer, focusing on LAMP technology. I’ve held several roles including CTO at a boutique guitar & amplifier company (Mojotone), an IT & Internet Marketing Manager at a prefabricated building company (Topsider Homes) and an Information Architect/Project Manager at an advertising agency (Symetri Corp). My current role is Software Developer at Redeye Worldwide and Yep Roc Music Group.
