About me

I started my journey in software development in May of 2021 when I helped a friend redesign and build a website. I was immediately intrigued and decided to pursue my newfound passion for development by entering a 7 month intensive, project-based program. During my time at Turing School of Software and Design I became very proficient in Javascript and React, and solidified my passion for software development.

As a massage therapist and athlete, I have always been body-centered and movement focused. I have learned how to break down large problems into smaller parts, and see how each part plays into the big picture. I spent many years managing teams in the restaurant industry, and have learned a lot about interpersonal communication and the amazing skill of truly listening. Once I found software development, I was able to merge my outstanding ability to manage and communicate within teams, and my passion for problem solving, code architecture, and solving real-world problems. Given the opportunity, I would love to bring my skillset to your company and help both you and I continue to grow.

Ryan Adams is a musician and songwriter. This app is an anthology of all his albums, where you can select an album to view more details, add albums to a "playlist" and hopefully learn a bit more about Ryan as an artist. This application was built using React, React's context api, hooks, PropTypes, and tested with Cypress. Enjoy getting to know Ryan Adams and his music a little bit better.

This project was built and tested in five days. The purpose of this project was to solidify my knowledge of React, Router, Async functionality, Hooks, Cypress, and PropTypes.

I built a custom Express server to use for this project and the link for that is in the repository.

Built with JavaScript - React - CSS - Cypress - Express - Router - Context Api

The goal of this project was to build an application with a team of back-end developers and implement new concepts, patterns, and libraries that have not been explicitly taught while at Turing. The app allows a user to explore and discover animal and plant species that are classified as critically imperiled. If a user chooses to register an account, they will be able to login and favorite the species they find the most interesting in order to keep track of their status. Otherwise, anyone can explore the app by choosing the guest option.
