About me

In Middle School, I programmed a text adventure RPG in BASIC on a TI-84 calculator. That was my first experience with code. I studied art and design through school while practicing code as a hobby. Now, I'm diving into programming and finding out I should have been doing this all along. I love problem-solving, working with teams of driven people, and designing beautiful, practical experiences for end-users. I carry my past experiences with me into my engineering, and design with those lessons in mind. We build things for people, so we must design with empathy.

JobQuest was my final project at Turing, done in collaboration with Shaunda Cunningham, George Soderholm, Olga Morgan, Curtis Bartell, Carson Jardine and Jake Heft. The front-end was developed in Typescript, and it was immensely exciting from start to finish. The project was a winner in Turing's Code Fair, as well as in Turing's Demo Competition.

Iro is my 3rd module final project. I built it to be a simple and beautiful website where users can view and save quotes from a random quotes API. The project is built with React using React Hooks and typechecking with PropTypes. The project is fully tested with a combination of React Testing Library and Cypress. I was able to practice prop destructuring, which I now love. I also enjoyed using this website to practice my skills at UI design and happy/sad path testing.

A fun little website built as my final for the 1st module at Turing School. I'm particularly fond of this one because I built custom art assets for it, and we had to figure out how to program Tic Tac Toe without looking it up, which I found particularly fun. The project uses primarily JavaScript, HTML5, and CSS, and was great practice for learning OOP, becoming familiar with the IDE and self-directed problem-solving.

Travel Tracker was my 2nd Module final project, and the first project where I practiced interacting with REST API's, which turned out to be a lot of fun. It's also the first project where I built a login screen, though the logic for the login is not terribly secure, it was more for proof of concept. This project is built with HTML5, SASS, JavaScript and Bootstrap. It's tested with Mocha and Chai, and was great practice with Git Workflow and TDD.
