About me

Hello! Welcome you to my portfolio where I bridge the worlds of mechanical design and software engineering to create innovative solutions. My journey has been a blend of past experiences, present aspirations, and a clear vision for the future. In my past, I cut my teeth in the world of mechanical design, leveraging my skills in drafting and CAD design. Working within small teams, I quickly realized the power of effective interpersonal communication and seamless teamwork. Meeting tight deadlines became second nature, a skill that I'm proud to carry with me. However, as I looked toward the future, I felt a pull into software development. I was drawn to the field by its limitless potential, the chance to contribute to a diverse community, and the allure of working with cutting-edge technologies.

Transitioning to back-end software engineering was a natural progression. I knew that my ability to meet deadlines, coupled with my strong communication skills, would serve as valuable assets. As I learned more about software development, I've discovered intriguing parallels between my passion for design and 3D printing and my enthusiasm for building frameworks and working with APIs, emphasizing precision, iterative problem-solving, customization, integration, continuous learning, innovation, and a sense of community in both realms. These parallels enrich my approach to software engineering, fostering creativity and reinforcing the value of collaboration and adaptability. Similarly, just as in mechanical design, every piece fits into a larger puzzle in software engineering.

My goal is to create meaningful impact through my work. By combining my past expertise with my newfound skills, I'm committed to crafting software solutions that not only solve problems but also drive positive change. I believe that technology can be a powerful force for good, and I'm excited to contribute to a world where innovation knows no bounds.

Thank you for taking the time to explore my portfolio. Together, let's forge a path towards a future where mechanical design and software engineering seamlessly intersect, creating a world of endless possibilities.
