Kimiko Muwanguzi is one of the latest additions to Composable Systems, joining us after completing programs through Code Louisville. When she’s not in the office, you can often find her playing Fallout or Halo.
What did you want to be when you were five years old? NOT an astronaut. I just did not want to be sent to space.
When did you decide you wanted to be a developer instead of an astronaut? I was learning to program through some free online courses and found that it was capturing my interest for long periods of time. I thought to myself, “I think I could do this all day”. That’s when I first thought it might be a good idea to consider pursuing it as something more than just a hobby.
If you weren’t a developer, what would you be doing? As a career? Probably a freelance sound designer or a research psychologist.
How did you first learn about Composable Systems? A friend introduced me to Jeremy when I was first looking into programming as a career. He and Bryan were both generous enough to meet with me and offer guidance as to what I should be trying to learn and accomplish. I was so impressed with Composable Systems, the work atmosphere, and the care that people had for their work and their team. It made me want to be a part of that experience.
What’s your favorite beverage after or during a long day? During: coffee. After: a good brew. Most other times: water.
What’s your favorite food? Always and forever: sushi.
Do you have any cool or bizarre talent? I can play the guitar and can generally pick up how to play instruments pretty quick.
What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve done? One time I jumped off a 30-ft. cliff in Hawaii into the ocean. I have also kayaked up a portion of the Colorado river and camped out over the weekend. That was a lot of fun.
If you were an animal what would you be? I would like to say something awesome like a falcon, but honestly it would probably be a giraffe. They are still cool animals, but just a little odd.
If you were stuck on an island what three things would you bring? Civilization. Electricity. Plumbing.
What is your least favorite food? Celery. Icky celery.
