Volunteer statement:

Software Engineering student at Florida Gulf Coast University with intense curiosity and a deep passion for technology and solving challenging problems. My interests are broad and I love learning about something new. Most of the time, I'm buried under a mountain of physics homework or working at my part time job that helps pay for school, but when I'm able to scrape up a precious hour or so of free time I enjoy reading and learning about technology, software, and science in general, and playing bass.

I run a pretty tight schedule between school and work and other things, but I'm hoping I can find a few hours here and there to contribute.

My skills include core Java 8, JavaFX, and swing. I've also just starting learning C# .NET (WPF) , and git. I've also learned the basics of mySQL but haven't had much chance to apply it. In the past, I've worked with HTML5 and CSS3 as well as Javascript and Python, though I'd have to brush up some before I'd be ready to use those skills on anyhting. 

I'm a college student, so I'm by no means an expert on any of these technologies, but I can fill whatever gaps in my knowledge I discover as needed. One of the reasons I signed up here in the first place was to gain experience by working on things. Serving a good cause is icing on the cake.
