About me

I have spent the last several years working in retail and some experience with The US Army. This experience helps me approach software development with keeping an attention to detail and double checking that I am providing high quality code.

I decided to switch to being a software engineer because I have always had an interest within technology. I started off as and IT specialist and I want to expand my technology knowledge by switching over to software engineering. I hope to one day climb the corporate ladder.

I am a software developer in training determined to do highest quality work in the most effective way. I am currently studying at Turing School of Software & Design for the backend program.

I am currently learning ruby, have little experience with python, little experience with html, and some experience with javascript.

I want to be able to provide a lot of empathy and help in my work environment and implement many user friendly ideas in the software world.

I want to work for a company that emphasizes a great work environment as well as emphasizing help and empathy for our clients and users.

Interactive rails application that allows users to find the nearest bathrooms, rate the bathrooms, and read/create reviews. This application consumes two different external apis, Google Maps and Geocoder, and allows users to authenticate with a third-party service. This project used an Agile workflow/Service-Oriented Architecture by consuming several API endpoints built by the Back End team, using a Service/Facade/Poro structure.

This project was made with 5 other developers in the span of 2 weeks. We utilized an agile workflow and often communicated to update each other as well as notify others of a possible error that may occur in order for us to collaborate to find a solution to solve it.
