I'm passionate about doing good, giving back, and helping to tackle the climate crisis with my working life.
This page showcases some of the projects I've worked on while learning web development.
Graduate of DevelopMe_'s full stack coding fellowship with a tech focused background.
Bagajob is a web app that I've been working on with some of my former coding bootcamp classmates. It's designed for job seekers to organize and track the applications they've made. It stores a variety of job specific information (salary, closing date, etc.) along with notes on the application and interviews.
I owned the back end set up an Authentication workflow, finishing the main API routes that another developer started, and deployment to AWS EC2. The reset password workflow includes integration with Mailjet's API to send reset password links to the user. I also used some custom middleware to send additional information to the client during the login workflow.
Come On You ____! is a React/Redux frontend and Laravel RESTful API backend app that I built alone during Week 13 of the developme coding bootcamp as a "technical challenge". We were given a brief to create an app that takes a list of 10 players and randomly assigns them to 5-a-side football teams.
We were also challenged to add more functionality of our choosing. I added features like picking the # of players on each team, setting the team name, further shuffling the teams, and saving the scores of the matches.
As part of the DevelopeMe_ coding fellowship we were provided the challenge to develop a web app in teams of four during Week 12. I was assigned by DevelopeMe_ to lead my team and work on the frontend.
We created the Movie Hopper web app to list movies that people in our cohort liked. It also allows you to see who likes the same movies by selecting multiple names. The front end is React/Redux and the backend is a Laravel RESTful API with 2 tables in a many-to-many relationship.
This mock veterinary practice database web application was developed over 2 weeks of the developme bootcamp learning and applying the skills listed above. It uses Laravel Blade to display lists of owners and their animals from the database.
It contains forms that allow for adding/updating these based on your user role. We also developed an API with Laravel that can be used to query and update the database (based on OAUTH and user role). Finally we deployed the site on AWS and set up Capistrano to enable streamlined deployment of updates to the site.
I love staying fit and the outdoors. Cycling, running, hiking, and sailing are my main interests. You’ll also find me maintaining my 2 bikes, reading a book, or working on web development side projects. Travel is also a major passion of mine, having visited 55 countries.
This page features some of my favorite photos from my travels. Above is of the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro after a 5 day trek to the highest point in Africa. The second is at the Mexican border in California, USA after riding 1600+ miles from Seattle, Washington, USA.
