About me

A creative back-end engineer that is in a constant battle of wits with his dog, occasionally lifts heavy things to work up a sweat, and avid movie aficionado. My past experiences in healthcare have taught me that collaboration is one of the best ways to yield positive results. I'm always willing to listen and explore new avenues to deliver the best possible product.

Leave It, Chibi! was a collaborative effort between 2 Front-End and 3 Back-end developers during the fourth module at Turing. It was an application that allowed users to determine how severe an ingested item would be to their dog and provided them with a list of nearby veterinarians, should the case be critical. We took this opportunity to delve deeper into AWS S3 and familiarize ourselves with the technology that we've been eager to learn.

The goal of this project was to create a successful web application from a student-led project idea. Our team created an app that will allow users to authenticate with a third-party service and consume two other APIs. This application has features that include using Google OAuth, viewing a Mountain Resort's information, and the weather forecast of the day.

Oh, another Sweater Weather project! Sweater Weather is a solo project during the final weeks of Turing's third module that sets up a scenario where I, as a back-end developer, work on a team that is building an application to plan road trips. This app will allow users to see the current weather as well as the forecasted weather at the destination. My team is working in a service-oriented architecture. The front-end will communicate with our back-end through an API. My job is to expose that API that satisfies the front-end team’s requirements.
