My name is Ousmane Gueye (pronounced Uzman Gaye), and I was born and raised in Senegal, West Africa. I’ve always been passionate about technology and engineering; I received my Baccalaureate of Science in Senegal prior to moving to the US. A few years later, I went to a small private school to study Web Design. Then I signed up for classes at Cabrillo where I got my associate in Engineering Technology. However, I found myself more passionate about web technologies than Architectural Drafting. I also have been fortunate enough to have worked as a Web Designer for a few companies in Santa Cruz, but I didn’t want to limit myself to web page creation.
I took a few Digital Media and Programming courses at Cabrillo college and transferred. I came across the Information Technology and Communication Design program at the school of Information and Technology (California State University Monterey Bay) and found it most suited for my intended career. My goal was to major in Communication Design with an emphasis in Web Design, and minor in Computer Science. In my senior year, I worked on a major Capstone project and received an award of excellence from the school of Information and Technology (California State University Monterey Bay).
With a few years of experience and a Bachelor of Science in IT and Communication, I’m expanding my skills in the mobile app development. I also try to follow the latest design trends and technology innovations. While a student at Cal State Monterey Bay, I was able to hone my skills on all the aspects of digital design and web programming. I’m also a DJ/singer and I love sports, music, traveling, languages, and cultures.
