Intro

My name is Christopher Mizell, I am a backend software engineer from San Francisco Bay Area.

My interest in programming began for me at the age of 16. High school I enrolled in an AP Computer Science class where I got to learn Java and OOP. Having experience with the hardware side of computers, finding out that I have a passion for debugging and programming is what led me to major in Computer Science in college. During college I worked multiple full time jobs to build real world experience with people, the ability to help and serve others kept me focused to finish my education in the form of App Academy. Since graduating from App Academy, I worked as a full stack software developer at TalenGen, a startup based in Berkely California. Check out some of my projects I created, and more information about my professional experience.
