Student | Entrepreneur | & So Much More

JJ

I am a student, entrepreneur, web designer, learning enthusiast, and so much more - jack of all trades and master of some - but not as many as I would like to be! To say the least, I am passionate about learning - intrigued by not only the acquisition of knowlege but the process by which new information is efficiently processed and effectively applied. However esoteric  my curiosities may be, the applicable commonality can - more often than not -  be traced back to business. I thrive in a competitive, work-ethic driven environment, and I am pursuing the foundational skills, experiences, creativity, and network to take action on my bold aspirations. Whatever your reason for visiting my sight – enjoy, learn a bit about me; and, hopefully, learn a thing or two beyond the ‘about me’ section of my website.
