After High School graduation, I put my programming experience on the side in favor
to begin work in the Oriental Rug industry. Starting by simply holding a sign on the
street corner for a rug store, my interest was sparked by the complexity of handmade rugs,
and started to learn more about them. Soon after, I moved from Portage, Michigan down to
Louisville, Kentucky, and continued my work with Oriental Rugs. This is when I came across
a cross-over business, RM Innovation, where I was able to apply my recent experience
of Oriental Rugs and combine it with my history of programming.
