Education and Certifications
Livermore High School
September 1999 to June 2004
High School Diploma
In high school, my main focus was in computer studies with a secondary focus in photography and videography. Took a class in Visual Basic 6 programming from which the teacher I had I was teacher her things she didn’t knew about.
Learned different techniques for film photography when studying the field. I was even a teacher’s assistant for the photography class helping with putting the chemicals together and assisted with classmates with proper equipment usage and chemical safety. I’ve also learned the bare basics of Photoshop with different experiments in photo manipulation.
In videography class I learned different techniques for filming and editing. I learned about different video editing software and the limitations of each software.
Las Positas College
September 2004 to June 2005
LPC is a community college in Livermore, CA from which I was starting my path in getting an AA degree in Computer Technology and possibly Computer Science as the actual career path. I started my course in CCNA as well but unfortunately was not able to complete it due to only being there for a year before having to move to Arizona. After moving to Arizona I wasn’t able to find the time to continue my education in a classroom environment.

I started my course to be A+ Certified in late 2011. In December 2011 I took the first test for CompTIA A+. April 1st, 2012 I took the second test and passed and officially became A+ Certified.
MCSA in Windows Server 2008
I’m currently studying Network+ and then jump over to Linux+ to improve my knowledge in Networking and Linux. The server this site is running off of is CentOS 5 that I’m running on my own.
I am also going to work on my MCSA in Windows Server 2008. I already played with basic configuration and windows deployments with Windows Server in a virtual environment with VMWare.
After that might improve my Network+ by going forward with CCNA or Security+. Only time will tell.
Other Study of Interest
There’s other studies I’ve been reading here and there and been working on. Those includes some programming languages such as Visual C# and C++ but more of a hobbyist then a career path.
