Community Fellow, Code for America
Jeffery Carmichael is a full stack web designer, who likes the creativity and the challenges involved in making technology that supports public services. Originally from Georgia, he holds degrees in both Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from Southern Polytechnic University and Morehouse College. His early career in network engineering was highlighted in part by his disaster recovery work as part of the team responsible for restoring voice and data for AT&T after the 9/11 attacks. Later, while serving as the web admin for a community outreach ministry in St. Petersburg, FL, he sparked an interest in web development and a passion for community engagement. He began teaching himself how to code and shortly after relocating to Charlotte, completed an intensive boot camp at UNC Charlotte, earning a Full Stack Web Development Certificate. His diverse background brings robust IT experience in programming, front-end website design, back-end databases, network engineering and telecom, technical troubleshooting, customer service, and support.
