About me

Hello! I'm Lee and I am a creative and curious learner who values tapping into the wealth of knowledge available to empower and bring resources to underserved communities. With a background in Human Development and Family Studies, connecting with people and building meaningful relationships has always been my greatest passion. I've discovered how powerful software development is in providing accessible and user-friendly applications to folks who may have struggled to gain access to/participate in our ever-evolving and technologically advancing society. Growth, empathy, and a desire to close the achievement gap across the US through software implementation is what I value most.

Outside of coding, I come from a large family of musicians and artists. If I'm not helping my grandma move gear nor working on ear training with my mom/partner, I am producing/writing my own songs or collaborating with friends on musical projects.

I look forward to joining a team that is passionate about creating more accessible and engaging experiences for users across the globe.

Re-sip-e is a one of a kind application built over a two-week period by a full-stack team of three FE and four BE engineers. This application gives users the ability to store and save unique drink recipes, make changes to existing recipes and features fan favorites all in one. Following Agile methodology, our team held daily stand-ups, weekly retros, developed a JSON contract, and conducted user-feedback tests to get our app in front of real users and make necessary adjustments. Through Github projects, we were able to add issues and complete PR reviews for production code and implemented CircleCI for continuous integration.

Tune - Out was created for all the Hip-Hop and R&B lovers/enthusiasts in the Seattle area to find and see their favorite artists performing at venues near them. By implementing Figma, Github projects, and Notion to organize component structure, wireframe, and requirements, the application was successfully built utilizing React, React-router and React hooks for a clean and interactive user experience. This app effectively tests for user pain points and flow through use of Cypress end-to-end testing.
