About me

A background in leadership coming from 8 years of military experience, a growing passion for coding and the problem solving puzzles that are part of programming logic, and a drive to bring diverse ideas and social understandings together to create more viable and usable products are the crossroads I sit at.  I look forward to when I can bring all of the growing talents I will have and the experiences I already have to the software development world.

This is my personal website portfolio designed and created by myself using React Native, CSS, and React Hooks. It was deployed using Vercel and focused on continuous integration and visual appeal at a variety of screen sizes. The main goal for this was to take a set of data, such as my own resume information, and display it in an appealing way using React components and some new skills picked up post Turing. Something I was very happy to add to this was the smooth scroll effect in the window view from the navigation bar. A focus for the project going forward is to keep it updated with new career and skill information and tweak the appearance to match feedback during the job search process.

Fridge to Glass was a group project involving Rachel Williams and Taryn Martin using a Restful API, React, CSS, HTML, and a focus on learning Redux to understand state management options. The function of the site is to allow users to search for cocktails based on the ingredients they might already have in their own household. We also included abilities to get recipes for random cocktails allowing users to experience fun new drinks to make at home. This project was also the first project that we were able to deploy using Heroku, the deployment process had some great problem-solving moments as we navigated difficulties between Heroku and the thunk functionality of Redux.

Leomund's Superhut was a solo project created by myself that would help me to learn the basics of React Components, API integration, and a 100% test-driven react development. As we were able to design our own project for this, I decided on creating a solution to the personal problem of flipping through multiple books and pages while Dungeons and Dragons players chose to shop in the fantasy worlds. The design of the project was also focused on a way to mimic shopping sites so as to get an experience in a common design world of front-end development. One focus that drove the project was checking on components that could be reused and keeping them small while still building from a test forward.
