Before we begin...What exactly am I an expert of? I'd say nothing, more a Jack of all Trades / Master of Nothing. That being said, it is a reference to this comedy sketch.
I am currently serving as a consulting Operations Manager for Aggressive Comix, an entertainment media site focused on Pop Culture and celebrating all that is nerd. I am based out of New York and currently managing a number of initiatives including a major revamp of the website.
I have also served in a number of professional roles most notably in the field of Financial Trading Software. I am currently employed at J.P. Morgan Chase, where I leverage a combined 6 years as a Senior Technical Support Analyst at Fidessa Corporation and Bloomberg L.P.. Both of which are well respected on the global stage for providing high performance market data and trading systems for a full spectrum of asset classes.
I received my B.S. in Computer Science and Business from Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA. in 2008.
In the eSports and Twitch.tv livestreaming communities, I am better known as PanicSwitched and have served in a number of freelance roles to help grow this burgeoning industry. I provided advisory and consultation services for many members of the community as well as acting as a Content / Talent Manager for a number of promising livestreaming talents. Nearly all of the talents I have worked with, have achieved major growth and success in terms of earnings and average viewer counts.
I have a number of other hobbies and skills and am eager to learn new things. Some of these skills include:
- Programming / Scripting – Numerous languages, mostly hobby level to perform odd jobs
- Game Design – I’ve come up with dozens of ideas, check out the blog for details!
