John’s interest in technology began upon receiving his first computer when he was 9 years old. From that point on, he grew increasingly interested in learning about and tinkering with technology – from building his own computers in his early teenage years to modifying video game code to suit his needs. This interest prompted him to pursue an education in technology, earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Computer and Information Technology from Purdue University. He hopes to continue his education by acquiring his A+, Net+, and Sec+ certifications. John’s hobbies include swimming, reading, video games, watching hockey, and learning new skills.
