Andrew Brown's Summary

I am an enthusiastic, self-driven programmer who loves to create things that people love.

I started programming at a very young age, and while I was originally primarily self-taught, I have closed a lot of knowledge gaps in receiving my Bachelors of Computer Science from Missouri University of Science & Technology. I look forward to writing exciting code every day, and when I'm not churning out high quality code for work, I'm at home pumping out just as much code into personal projects.
