About me

I have driven nurses to work through a blizzard, I have operated machinery during a hurricane to keep the roads clear for first responders, I have climbed into the cramped dark spaces no one dares to go to fix problems no one believed could be fixed, and in doing so I have saved companies hundreds of thousands of dollars. I take great pride in solving problems that were deemed unsolvable. and now I'm a software developer.

Pair project: We were tasked with creating an application where users could select movies from a database and create a "viewing party" with friends to watch the movie. We consumed a second API that also provided links to find the movies on streaming services once selected.
