About me

After ten years as a Seal in the Navy, I decided to follow a passion I had never pursued in programming. Before Turing, I obtained my bachelor's degree in Organizational Leadership from the University of Charleston, West Virginia. I also attended the short full-stack Coding Dojo course, where I quickly realized I was passionate about programming and couldn't wait to learn more. I always love a good challenge and know that there is always a way to get over any wall.

Created a multi-page application implementing React Router that can be accessed by a single user while displaying all the potholes in your area on an interactive Google Map!

Implemented the ability to view and manipulate pothole data, including updating the status of a pothole (pending, in-progress, and done), as well as the ability to add and/or remove a pothole

A solo project workout app where a user can create and track their workouts in real time!

The user has the option to choose from over 1300 exercises organized by category.

If you are not sure what to do you can chose a random workout.

The app was created using React and React Router while pulling data from an external api. It was fully tested using Cypress end-to-end testing.
