Orlando Geronimo | UncommonGoods

Orlando Geronimo, UncommonGoods Senior Software Architect

My hometown is…
Gabaldon, Nueva Ecija Philippines–but living in Sayreville, New Jersey.

The tech project I most enjoyed working on at UncommonGoods was…
Website redesign.

I’m inspired by…
Young people who have overcome incredible challenges to gain their education. They take a leap of faith and begin their pursuit of college without any guarantee that they will be able to pay for it and survive. Along the way, they seek out any and all opportunities and resources that can support them. And nothing should stop them. Whatever obstacles they may reach in their lives, they shouldn’t give up on what they want to do. Nothing should keep them away from their dreams or their goals, whatever they might be. God bless them.

My favorite place to visit in New York City is…
The top of the Empire State Building.

An uncommon fact about me…
I eat code every day!

When I’m not working, I’m probably…
Working in my yard! I like to make different things all the time. I love to see my plants grow and I enjoy the beauty of it. They are a constant reminder of growth, re-birth, persistence and determination.

The word that best describes me…
Technical. I’ve always had a hunger for knowledge. Some people may find it weird, but it’s actually true. It’s fun to have passion for learning stuff you’re interested in.

Working at UncommonGoods, I’ve learned…
Always be a part of the solutions and start being vocal about what’s right! Set a goal for every day and never be tired.

Would you rather… sing a full song in front of the entire company OR work in silence for an entire week, without talking to anyone?
Sing. I can play guitar and sing!
