About me


JavaScript, HTML, CSS, React, Tailwind, Typescript, Next.js, Postman, PostGreSQL, Knex, Express


I spent years training, teaching, and understanding user needs in software. I want to be on the side that makes a difference in impacting the customer instead of just supporting and reporting the issues, so I joined Turing to learn the skills to be able to make that difference. I received 2 Bachelors degrees in 4 years, and I have strong passions for music and SCUBA diving.

Description of this App

Munch Madness stands out from other apps by combining the enjoyment of NCAA March Madness tournament brackets with the purpose of selecting a restaurant to eat at.

Munch Madness gamifies the process of deciding where to eat or order takeout. Using a tournament-style bracket (1 vs 16, 2 vs 15, 3 vs 14, all the way 8v9 etc.) users can select up to 16 restaurants(based on location) and vote on a winner of each restaurant matchup. The winning restaurant advances to the next round until a final champion is crowned. With the ability to invite friends and engage in friendly competitions, Munch Madness takes the hassle out of choosing where to eat and transforms it into a fun and social experience. This app helps people create their own culinary Cinderella Story!

This is a live website built for YSS Dive and their new Instructor Development Courses. Users can see success stories, and tailored packages based on the controlled form on the main page. This site also has a functional CMS I built for the company to make smaller edits and additions to content themselves.

Bare Minimum


Welcome to Bare Minimum! Feeling discouraged about completing large scale tasks and projects? Well, our application is the one for you! Bare Minimum is your go to organization website that breaks down tasks into small simple ones. A user can choose from any of the categories and be presented with a task that is smaller and more easily manageable! If the user feels like the task is something they can accomplish, we have the option to save this task to a personal list. This way, a user can view all their saved tasks and mark them when they are complete! A user can also decide to delete a task from that list when they no longer wish to complete it. Our app is fully functioning on both your computer or your phone, making it easy to complete these tasks on the go! We hope you enjoy Bare Minimum!
