I grew up in St. Joseph, MO where I attended Missouri Western State University and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. While attending school, I worked part-time at the local casino as a table games dealer. After graduating, I continued working in the casino industry in various, different roles and departments including accounting, surveillance management and now internal audit. I’ve been married for the past 16 years to my wife Adrian and I have two young, beautiful daughters: Bailey (age 10) and Parker (age 8).
I’m married with 2 great kids. I grew up playing sports and went to Lindenwood University on a baseball scholarship. I graduated with a degree in Athletic Training and then took a position as a restaurant manager. After being a restaurant manager for the last 9 years, I finally feel like I have found the right career in Web Development. It was a tough decision to make but I feel coding will offer me the satisfaction and opportunity that I have been looking for.
I was born and raised in Germany by my mother. At 16, I decided that I wanted to move to the United States for better opportunities. I joined the Air Force as a Security Forces member right out of High School. After my 4-year enlistment I was honorably discharged and started doing jobs as an Admin Assistant. I moved from Missouri to Wyoming to Massachusetts to Cali back to Missouri. I now live in Independence with my Husband and my cat Phelix.
My name is Joshua Harrison. I served in the United States Army as a Field Artillery soldier. I deployed to Iraq in 2008 in Babil Province, which is south of Baghdad. Ever since I can remember, I have had a strong curiosity towards technology. When I was a child, my Father introduced me to the computer languages Visual Basic and HTML, and I was hooked! I have since explored technology further and I love to expand my knowledge of the “how’s” and “why’s” applications behave the way they do.
Hi, my name Is Michael W. Smith. I currently am a student over at Centriq Training in St. Louis MO studying to be a System Administrator. I am also working on getting some certifications in my time here such as the A+, Sec+, Net+, and MTA just to name a few. Computers and Technology have always interested me. My goal is to become a successful individual who makes a great impact on a company and help drive them to success.
I was born in the Pacific Northwest and I’ve lived there for most of my life. I have two sisters that live here in Kansas City, a brother in Washington, and my parents live in Florida. For the last five years, I worked in the construction industry as a full-time job while freelancing as a writer and editor. My wife and I still haven’t decided if we want children, but for now our dog Peanut fills that role.
My name is Nathaniel Broadway, and I was born and raised in the Lawrence, KS area. I graduated from Eudora High School in 2015. I then went to KU for a year pursuing a Master’s program for biochemical engineering. I left KU in 2017 to care for my family by working at General Dynamics as a Help Desk Representative concerning Medicare and MyMedicare.com. I am currently an expecting father and pursuing training in Full Stack Web Development at Centriq.
I attended the University of Missouri-Columbia where I received my Bachelor’s in General Studies. After college I got a job working at Civil Design, Inc., a small civil engineering firm in St. Louis, where I worked for thirteen plus years as a Water Resource Tech and Land Surveyor. I worked a lot of rewarding projects during my time as a Land Surveyor. Some as small as locating property corners for a single home to as big as total bridge replacement over the Mississippi. My most memorable experience I had as a surveyor was finding a property corner stone set in 1865.
After graduating high school, I went to Missouri State University with the intent of majoring in IT but somehow ended up on the pre-medicine track. When I could no longer afford that, I worked in retail, customer service and warehouses. Unchallenged and unpassionate, I decided to re-spark old interests and found my purpose in IT. That’s what led me to Centriq. Now I’m having the time of my life and couldn’t be happier!
