I am a Lead QA Engineer @ Ameritas
As a son of a programmer during the birth of the internet I grew up on computers. I started when I was 5 or 6 playing with Windows 3.1. Computers were integrated in to my everyday life and I have always understood them and used them. Growing up I fixed peoples computers, printers, and various other electronics. My dad, who always made you plead your case if you wanted anything new, got me my own computer no questions asked.
After college I stumbled into QA and have been loving it ever since. Automation is fun for me to see my code whipping through so many test scenarios at lighting speed. Catching bugs before they become a problem and figuring out what went wrong.
