Hello, my name is Andres Leon. I’m only 24 years old but with a lot of experience…
In 2016, I began my internship at Florida International University and with Dr. Evelyn Gaiser at the Periphyton Lab as a research assistant to doctoral candidate, Viviana Mazzei. In the lab, I learned methods for cleaning and analyzing samples that were collected in the Everglades National Park by fellow researchers and lab staff. Shortly after my start in the lab, I began my own project and eventually won several awards at the South Florida Science and Engineering Fair.
In 2017, I graduated high school and was admitted to the University of Central Florida, where I majored in Aerospace Engineering. While in Orlando, I began working in auto mechanics and worked as a general service technician and customer service advisor, where I learned massive amounts of information about auto mechanics while working side-by-side with ASE-certified technicians.
What I’m Currently doing
I currently work at the prestigious international auction company Sotheby’s, based in New York City, as a senior programmer, I am in charge of the development and maintenance of the company’s wine e-commerce.
I am also working as a senior programmer at Oncemillon LLC.
What I love
I plan to finish my education and earn a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering one day, but I am also dedicated to learning and applying more and more programming in my professional life ahead.
Hopefully, in the future, there will be enough wifi to be able to code from Mars!
