About me

Former high school Social Studies teacher turned front-end developer in Denver, CO. I am a person who views any problem as an opportunity to learn, grow, and build connections. As a 'forever student and teacher', my goal is to create/update/maintain software that can be used to advance a community or an individual based on THEIR needs. Helping people has always been a passion and one I intend to continue pursuing. Thanks to my personal experiences, I am rooted in logical, empathetic, and collaborative tactics that can be used to solve countless problems. Give me a challenge and I'll respond with determination, enthusiasm, cooperation, patience, and a fun-loving attitude.

MatriMania is a wedding vendor application designed to aid in the organization of group photos at weddings. The app allows vendors to view their upcoming weddings, add a photo list, notify guests of the photo numbers they will be featured in (as well as time and location of the photo shoot), and view each photo's list of participants as the photo shoot is happening.

My areas of focus:
My areas of focus were on TypeScript learning and development along with robust Jest testing of our application.
