A Brief Summary ...
My name is Alessandro Colarossi, I am a graduate from both the Philosophy Program at York University and the Computer Programmer Analyst program at Sheridan College.
My background in a practical scientific discipline at a career-focused college combined with a theoretical university degree allows me to make decisions and cultivate ideas that are both forward-thinking and technical.
I have over six years of work experience in the information technology field, working in diverse roles in various office environments ranging from small firms to multinational corporations.
The goal of this site is to act like a hub. It should serve to present an all-encompassing, high-resolution picture of my academic and work life thus far.
Computer Programmer Analyst program at Sheridan College
As a graduate student from Sheridan College’s Computer Programmer Analyst co-op program, I have obtained a solid educational background within the fields of computer science, business and web development.
This diploma allowed me to zero-in and cultivate areas of Information Technology that I excelled at the most. Areas such as: Systems Analysis and Design, Web Development and User Interface design and interactivity.
Philosophy degree from York University
During the course of my Philosophy degree at York, I was honoured to have my writing published in the 2012 edition of The Oracle - York University’s Undergraduate Philosophical Review. This particular article of published work emphasizes my interest and proficiency in research and writing. It also underscores my ability to think with clarity and sound judgment without obfuscation.
I've also been published in Philosophy Now Magazine - Issue 97, for my article entitled - Focusing on the brain and ignoring the body: The doomed fate of Artificial Intelligence.
Overall, this degree helped me to advance the practical knowledge gained at the college level to something more theoretical and challenging from an academic perspective.
