Hello!! My name is Maxwell Purpera.

Max and Emma

(Above is me and my beautiful girlfriend.)

I graduated from UB with a BS in Business Management with a concentration in Financial analysis in 2012, but decided to come back to UB last semester to follow my true dream of becoming a Mechanical Engineer. I have taken CSE 113 (Intro to Programming) back in 2010 and also took EAS 230 (Engineering Computations) last semester. I did very well in both classes and have always had a great interest in learning web design. I am very excited to start this course and continue my programming education.
