About me

Software developer with a background in literature and linguistics, and experience in a variety of forward-facing customer service roles.

I bring curiosity and compassion to my work and I understand the importance of empathetic problem-solving. I've developed the ability to listen and collaborate effectively with people from all walks of life and I believe as a software developer I can use these skills to build meaningful and intuitive tools.

Tools Used

  • Heroku
  • React

GÜT BOOKS provides a place to peruse classic (and free) literature to those who long for the quiet serenity and leather-scented ambiance of a well-worn library without having to change out of their dressing gowns.

This was my final project for Mod 3 in Turing School of Software and Design's Front End Engineering program.

With this application users are able to view a variety of free e-books sourced by Project Gutenberg. The user can flip through all selections, or choose to filter by their preferred genre. The user can click on their desired book to find more information, including a link to a free e-book. Users may also choose to save their selected tome to their own personal library, found under the link 'My Shelf'.

Caturday is a place for both cat-enthusiasts and new-to-cats-users to learn more about cat breeds and potentially find one that would match their lifestyle— all in a Western theme.

With this application users are able to view a cat of the day, a list of cat breeds fetched from a RESTful API. To learn more about a breed, the user can click on the wanted poster preview and get additional information. Users can also filter by the affection level of cats
