Following my love of rhymes and my penchant for storytelling, I am embarking on a new chapter of my life. It’s time to say goodbye to the tech world and journey into the world of writing. I am following my heart and pursuing my passion and in doing so I hope to inspire others to go after their dreams as well.
Here’s my story
For over 28 years, I have been a software engineer in Silicon Valley. Fresh out of college, I pursued a career that matched my skills and I excelled at it. My career path actually began as a seed planted in my mind by a beloved uncle when I was just a child. Having always been good at math in school, he planted a simple idea in my head: “You should be an engineer.” That seed germinated and took on a life of its own.
Computer science jobs were plentiful so it seemed like the logical choice for study. After graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science in Computer Science, I migrated to the west coast to begin an engineering career.
I have worked at Fortune 500 companies as well as startup companies. My engineering expertise has been utilized in a variety of different roles: software developer, software tester, technical writer, support and even trainer. After trying out many different engineering roles, I finally reached the inevitable conclusion that I was not in the right career. None of my engineering jobs or roles invoked the passion and joy that I sought.
Now, I am journeying into the unknown world of writing; a world filled with new and exciting things. I hope you’ll join me on this journey.
