Hey, it's Terrence.
So maybe you’ve clicked around my website, gazed at my projects and learned a bit about what I can do. Here’s the part where I tell you a bit about myself.
I was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and enrolled at the University of Cincinnati when I was just 16. In 2010, I graduated with a marketing degree with a focus in advertising and began working jobs that ranged from social media manager to brand strategist.
After an unexpected layoff, I asked myself, “What’s next?” Sure, I had been a successful marketer but I needed a change. I wanted to take control of my life and pursue a career that would be challenging, make me uncomfortable and force me to grow.
That’s when I decided to learn how to code. In January 2016, I was accepted into the Tech Talent South program in Charlotte, N.C., with the idea that if I was going to change my career, I’d have to put my money where my mouth is.
So, I did.
I love coding but life’s about balance. When I’m not attached to a Mac, music and movies are life. I’m reading about cryptocurrency/blockchain development. I love cooking pasta. And, most importantly, I’m learning how to be a father to a beautiful little girl.
I believe I have the know-how and acumen to meet your development needs. Plus, I’m a self-taught graphic designer and marketer who’s developed a passion for thinking creatively to solve business challenges.
