I also have certificates of course completion from Cisco Networking Academy. I currently am doing research and development on a few robotic projects with my own company NXTGEN were I focus on using STEM or Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics to develop technology to make the world better. I strongly believe robotics can open up many opportunities for mankind and would like to expand my knowledge in the field as a means of benefiting humanity. Also for NXTGEN I do computer networking, computer repair, hardware/ software upgrades, assemble gaming computers, laptop, and tablet repair. I am also looking to take my company to the next level including software development and I am also a inventor.
