About Me

Hello World! I am an Atlanta-based software engineer building UI, APIs, and more at LeaseQuery, previously at DigitalCrafts. I am a former project manager and radio broadcast ops guy who made the career change to programming at age 31. An avid builder of things since my first Lego set at 3 years old, I fell in love with programming while working in radio, where I was introduced to batch scripting for process automation. I became captivated by computers and software, and I wanted to learn more about interfacing directly with these amazing machines; I decided to build my career around the pursuit of this knowledge. Passionate about coding, learning, teamwork, and problem-solving, my strength is seeing the big picture and understanding how all aspects of an operation coalesce.

Projects

Reactivities

Reactivities is a full-stack application I built with the help of a Udemy course from Neil Cummings. The purpose of building this application was to learn more about programming in C# and .Net Core. Along with C#/.Net Core, I used Entity Framework and a MySql database. The UI is built with React and TypeScript and uses MobX for state management and the Semantic UI component library. The application is deployed via the LAMP stack and is hosted on DigitalOcean.

Hopify

Hopify is a solo project I built using React and Redux. Using the Google Maps API, the user is able to search for beers and breweries in any city and bookmark their favorites. I built the API for beer data myself using Node/Express alongside a PostgreSQL database that was built with Sequelize ORM. I plan to continue adding beer data with the help of Python web scrapers. The app is hosted on Amazon S3 and optimized with CloudFront.
