Intern: January, 2005
My interest in astronomy would have to come from
my dad. At the age of 4, I won a trip to Space Camp
and let me tell you I think my dad had more fun
than I did. My dad gave me my first telescope and
taught me how to use it. At that time I had no clue
as to the size of the Universe, now it just makes
my head hurt when I think about it.
It was my sophomore year at Franklin High School
that got me interested in computer graphics. My
teacher Mr. Briggs got me hooked on Adobe programs
and I have been using them since. After high school
I enrolled in the Community College of Baltimore
County (CCBC) Catonsville. There I got my first
peek into web design and loved being able to make
sites that were informational, but designed so that
the user would not get frustrated browsing around.
My goals are to graduate from CCBC with my associates
degree this spring. After that it is on to a four-year
college to earn my bachelors degree.
Working for Heritage is just the break I needed
since for the past 8 years I have been working for
a local recreation agency, dealing with very energetic
kids on a daily basis. My interest after work and
school is spending time either hanging out with
friends or working on my 1970 Corvette Stingray.
Let me tell you, that car can take up most of my
