About me

I moved to the US at the age of 16 in 2003 and attended Minico Senior High School in Rupert, ID from 2003 to 2004. Following the completion of my junior year at Minico, I was awarded a scholarship at St. Paul Preparatory School, a premier private school, (formerly Nacel International School) in St. Paul, MN from where I graduated with a high school diploma in 2005.

After graduating from St. Paul Preparatory School, I attended Hamline University in St. Paul, MN on a partial scholarship and majored in International Management and minored in economics. I graduated in January 2009 a semester ahead of schedule with a B.A. and several years of experience in software development for commercial projects.

I worked for Allianz Life in Golden Valley, MN from March 2009 to December 2009 as Transfer & Exchange Representative.

In 2010, I returned to college to pursue an A.S. in computer science. With one semester left, I decided not to finish but move to Germany instead to work on my career.
