Meet Tre -- This Week's Featured Employee

July 29, 2011

This week’s featured employee is Tre, who recently joined our team as one of our .NET Tech Leads. Before entering the world of eCommerce, Tre had a career in professional boxing training with the great Floyd Mayweather. After that, he hung up the gloves and decided to pursuit a career in .NET development. Excellent career choice, Tre! We asked Tre to answer a few questions for us, here is what he said:

What’s your title?
.NET Architect/Tech Lead

How long have you been at Guidance?
Feels like sometime but only over a month officially.

Tell us about your hometown.
I grew up in Los Angeles/Windsor Hills. We moved to Las Vegas when I was 11 years old and we moved back to California 3 years later. We got tired of the heat. :)

What city do you currently live in?
I currently stay in Marina Del Rey, CA.

How did you decide on this career?
I’ve always had a passion for technology. As a young child (like around 10), my first computer was an Atari 800 XL. This career came naturally to me. It just worked out. By age 10, I was already coding in QBasic.

What was the oddest job you ever held?
The oddest job I’ve ever had was a rabbit breeder when I was 10 years old. I used to breed rabbits and sell them to pet shops. Made a good profit.

What do you like most about working at Guidance?
I enjoy the cool weather and the relaxed yet professional working environment.

What are you currently working on?
I’m currently working on a new eCommerce site for a major book publisher. The site is being built on Mediachase ECF. I am also designing the checkout process for another book publisher (a different one).
