In 1999 I finished college getting a NZQA diploma and a couple of certificates for employment, and an excellence in one of my classes.
In 2000 I completed a Diploma in computing, earning a Level 5 Certificate and my International A+ qualification.
So I am a certified Computer Hardware & Software technician I have had a couple of jobs, worked for a movie company for 6months.
I have worked for my Dad at times, helping him with both his company and his pc.
I have worked for my mum's partner at his work, a big data/storage company.
In 2001 I got a job working as a games specialist at computer-related retail store, which also ended up getting me time in the computer tech bay, the dock(receiving and sending goods) and on the checkouts, stayed their till February of 2003 and only left because of the crap the boss was putting me though.
Then I had 4 months of looking for a job in a field that I enjoyed/was qualified to work in. on June 12th 2003 I began working at an Internet Cafe, as customer service/games specialist/computer tech/sole-charge night shift manager, working 4 shifts a week, as working 10pm-9am isn't the easiest thing to do. Compared to my last job that job was heaven. On the 27th of March 2006 I resigned from the internet cafe.
I then spent a long time unemployed and sank into a pretty deep depression.
thankfully i ended up getting a 5month contract that helped with that, and of course i could sink myself into video games.
now while looking for full'ish time work I down myself in video games and try to put interesting video's on my youtube page. i'd love to make a living from that and/or streaming, but sadly don't think i'm interesting enough.
so that's pretty much me in a nut shell.
