behind the scenes at beyond
I am first and foremost a husband and father. I currently work full-time in the emergency management sector.
My name is Trent Simon and I am from a small town in Alabama. After many years of “deliberation”, I finally decided what it was I wanted to do in life. I graduated with both my Bachelor of Science and Master’s degrees. My focus was emergency management which is the field I currently work in.
However, I have always been drawn to computers and learning new skills, programs, etc. Computers have always been a big part of my life. My uncle brought one to my grandmother’s house, where I grew up, for us to use. Of course, computers from that time were nothing compared to what they are today. Now, society is more reliant on computers and internet at our fingertips (without tying up grandma’s phone line at night).
Furthermore, while I do not claim to be an expert in anything, I do enjoy learning new skills and figuring out how to do things on my own. I was raised to work hard and find the solution to problems you don’t know how to solve and that is how I plan to raise my son.
Therefore, I decided to venture into some freelancing website development and management. While this is not my primary profession, it is something I am very passionate about.
