NOTE: hey all, I've been crazy busy with work the past couple months, and it looks like it'll carry on that way for at least 3 more. I can't promise I'll be able to respond to every proposal (especially those which require scheduling), but I'll try!
Hi, I'm LT!
By day I am a full-stack dev and product analyst. Bachelors in Software Development (Java), coding bootcamp graduate (C#/.NET), and certified web programmer. I also do applications and technical support/troubleshooting.
On my own time, I'm a martial arts practitioner - Shotokan, Thai Boxing, Filipino street fighting & weaponry. I'm starting to dabble in other combat arts and hybrid shoot. As a survivor of domestic violence, I try to share what I've learned from my experience and teach people how to fight and stay safe on the streets, and offering support where I can.
When I'm not fighting or programming, I'm a Red Cross CPR/First Aid/AED instructor. I used to work in healthcare, and this is a way for me to stay connected to that chapter of my life.
I head a small makerspace and work with a lot of local libraries to teach kids about cool stuff like robotics and tech in various forms. It's mostly an excuse to play with some REALLY cool toys 😉
I used to work with Alzheimer's patients, and my former residents will always have a special place in my heart. The elderly are filled with wisdom, stories, and human emotions - I never want to forget that.
I'm spending my time sharing all of the knowledge I'm able to, while learning along the way. I'm curious by nature, and always willing to help out, however I can!
