I'm Barrett, a Software Developer.

About Me

I graduated with a B.Sc. in Computer Science from the University of British Columbia Okanagan Campus.

I'm dedicated to both the building of, and the educating about, technology. As a Software Developer, I thrive on solving problems and creating software solutions to those problems. I'm always open to learning and acquiring new technical skills to further my career.

Currently, I am employed as a Junior Developer at ProSmart Enterprises Inc. in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. My continued goal is to gain experience and knowledge about the Software Industry.

I have made some of my documents, such as Resumes and Reference Letters, available below.
