Hi, Stranger! Nice to meet you.


I love building things. While difficult engineering problems are often found to be fun to tackle, I get most excited when solving real customer problems that have a business justification. My goals are to continue practice and learning throughout my career and enable my teammates to further succeed in their own careers by utilizing strong collaboration and providing leadership when necessary.

I have been coding since I was in middle school, starting with PHP and Python as my two primary languages. Since starting my career within companies, I have found excitement in both the development and the administrative sides of the Agile workflow. My career has led me to learn and develop application in PHP, Python, JavaScript, and Java so far and I am always looking to add more tools to my toolbox.

Here is a list of technologies and frameworks that I have worked with before either with personal projects or within my employment at companies:

  • PHP
  • Python
  • JavaScript
  • Java
  • HTML 5
  • CSS 3
  • Figma
  • Postman
  • Spring Boot
  • Django
  • Flask
  • Laravel
  • CodeIgniter
  • Vue JS
  • Git
  • MySQL
  • Siebel
  • Microsoft Office

Projects - GitHub

EasyAccounting PHP / CodeIgniter 3

Easy Accounting is made to be a Double Entry Accounting Software written in PHP with the CodeIgniter Framework using MySQL. The software is a simple software that is very limited, but used more as a presentation to showcase how simple double entry accounting can be implemented. There are various pieces of code that are not industry quality, but this is again used to merely showcase certain programming abilities.

  • Launched the development of this project alongside collaboration of my professor to create a quality application that received a 100 as a final project.
  • Facilitated weekly sprint plannings with the team to create an Agile workflow and to ensure maximum quality and quantity of code was produced.
SimpleIgniter PHP / CodeIgniter 3

SimpleIgniter is, simply put, CodeIgniter 3 with a user system incorporated. It has a user system with the ability to register, login, and recover account via email. The framework also has an admin system where you can view all the users created, edit their information, and even delete them.

  • Developed a concrete and reliable base framework with User authentication built-in to be able to quickly deploy working prototypes or simple applications for clients.
