AcquiaU Session: 
2011 Fall Session

The One and Only

Checo graduated from Syracuse University in 2007 with a bachelor’s degree in Television and Film Production. Since then, he has worked on a number of Boston-area projects including the Discovery Channel series “Time Warp” and movies such as “Zookeeper” and “Here Comes the Boom.” As a hobby, Checo taught himself how to build websites in high school, and in the years since, he has been working to expand his skills to the point where his hobby is now his career. Checo began working at Acquia in December of 2011 as the first hire in their inaugural “Acquia U” program - a six-month-long series of courses, projects, and on-the-job training sessions intended to help people transition to a new career working with Drupal. Checo spends most of his free time working with animals, going to the gym, and learning new web design skills. He admits to being a “closet geek,” and his two guilty pleasures are Star Trek and Harry Potter.
