About me

Former videographer / photographer turned software developer. The film industry was where I gained my resourcefulness, adaptable problem solving, and how to teach myself technical skills with no direction. Thriving in creative and collaborative environments lead me to my decision of becoming a software developer, and the fact that I absolutely love the work!

One minute writer is for creatives who are seeking inspiration and a space to document and organize their ideas and writing. They can track their progress through metrics on a user dashboard as well as revisit and edit past writings. In our writing page the user is gifted with some inspiration to help them start the writing process through a random word, image, and an audio. This is a group project incorporating a new stretch tech, GraphQL. This is also the first time the back-end program and the front-end program were able to collaborate and build a functioning application together. We used agile process to turn our application into deployed and production ready software.
