Summary

Hi my name is Mike Brajkovich. I have been developing software professionally for over 8 years. I generally work with C# and the .NET framework, focusing mostly on API's and back-end services. I invest all the time that I can into learning and further understanding the tools that I work with. I am happiest when creating products that streamline people's lives.

I am a Chicago native. I am a Saluki —a graduate of Southern Illinois University Carbondale. I hold a Bachelor of Science and a Master's degree in Computer Science and I have minors in both Mathematics and Chinese. Aside from coding I also love gaming, technology, music, and travelling. I like to share some of my travel and food photos on my Instagram which you can find here. You can see a short summary of projects I have worked on below. For some of the personal projects I have worked on check out my GitHub profile here.
