Back in the third grade, I started getting into computers – building my first computer with my dad and first website with my friend Jake. It was during this time that the name Flakeparadigm came about. The first website I had to consider creating an avatar for was SnowDays [Flash], so I combined snowflakes and my favorite word at the time. In the end, the name stuck and I’ve been using it ever since!
Since then, I’ve had the exciting chance to live and study in Tucson, Brisbane, and Sydney, graduating with a B.Sc. in Computer Science from The University of Arizona plus a year of foreign exchange at The University of Queensland. Through the years I have dabbled in a variety of computer subjects – from web design, to computer repair, to IT/Systems admin – and have ultimately settled into software engineering as my main focus.
