About Me

Just a regular guy interested in most all things informational and technology; put them together and even better. Loves learning, especially computing, and creating.

Previously

First professional life was as a graphic designer.  Final year project consisted of designing, laying out, pre-press and editing a 300+ page book. Most of my portfolio was lost through various moves over the years (digitization barely crossed my mind in the early 00’s) but I did manage to scrape together a small sample while building a portfolio website: http://donyd.me.pn/Portfolio/index.html (Other remnants post that era can be found here: http://donyd.me.pn/)

Building the site and interning as a graphic designer at a software firm reignited something that I wanted to do since I could remember – being a programmer. So with that in my sights, I completed my first degree, Bachelor of Arts in Information Systems Management, followed by an MBA. Closer than before, but still somewhat fresh and lacking I ventured into the wild and wondrous world of IT.

What I’m doing now

Currently a software quality assurance agent whose getting his learn on in a part-time computing degree to fill out any gaps and align closer to the goal of becoming a programmer.

While I’m not busy learning for work, or mostly college at the moment, I enjoy exploring various pursuits as time permits, including:

  • Game development using Unity game engine
  • Python
  • This, and another blog.
  • videos on Youtube – mostly tutorials, hopefully more product reviews
