👨‍💻 Day Job

Working as a software engineer at Premium Retail Services. I get to work with some of the biggest companies in the world, so that's awesome.

👨‍🎓 Learning

Studying React for my day job. Also, it's about time I pick up one of these modern frontend frameworks. Currently working through this course by Stephen Grider. I'm loving it so far. It's clear, concise, and filled with useful diagrams.

🎈 Fun

Playing Eleven VR (Virtual Table Tennis). My goal is to be one of the top 250 players in the world.

  • Top 5000 - 12/20/2020
  • Top 1000 - 12/31/2020
  • Top 500 - 1/18/2021
  • Top 400
  • Top 300
  • Top 250
 

🏡 Location

Living in Memphis, TN with my significant other. It's pretty chill here. Food is better than Knoxville (previous city). There is DIM SUM! I LOVE DIM SUM!

There is definitely more poverty here, though. I want to help, not sure how yet.

🧰 Tools

Computer: Still rocking the computer I built in 2013. I have added more ram and updated the GPU. However, for the most part, it's the same PC. Intel i7-4770K and Radeon HD 7970 Radeon R9 Fury. I want to upgrade, but I can't justify it since it's still plenty fast. Maybe when DDR5 is more widespread.

Phone: Pixel 4a 5G. Such a great phone. I also have an iPhone 7, but I don't use it much.

Productivity: I recently switched from Evernote to Notion in 2020. I couldn't be happier. It's like moving from a static website to a dynamic website.
