Leopoldo Hernandez, SWE

I am an avid and focused individual. I strive for daily self-enrichment of the ever-growing CS field. After teaching English as a Second Language to adults for 10+ years, I came to the realization that my passion for problem solving, patience and dedication needed a change of pace, and so, a career-change took place.

I studied computer science at 42 Silicon Valley where the pedagogy is peer-to-peer, based learning. I was able to learn about what inspired me and motivated me while coding away projects for 14+ hours a day. I was a lot of fun.

I’m currently a Full-Stack Developer at Wayfair based in Boston MA. 😀
