About me

Philosophy is the art of learning and I have been immensely lucky to find another field in software development that rests on that same core principle. Development is similar to philosophy in that it is often learning about learning. As a lifelong student I have satisfied my curiosity by tackling subjects in school that would allow me to do my greatest good for the world, in addition to my involvement in the worlds of stand-up comedy and live music. My interest in politics/law, the entertainment industry, and software development show my interest in leaving this world a better place than I found it. As with software engineering, becoming ‘better’ at these subjects is not solely based on attaining new specific facts, but more about learning process and how to explore and do new things.

Gallery Time is a mobile first Progressive Web Application (PWA) that allows its users to find galleries in the area based on either their geo-location or a city of their choosing. This application was built in 10 days while learning PWA concepts and solidifying our knowledge of React Hooks. Utilizing these technologies of a Service Worker, the Cache, and Manifest allowed for both offline use and increased performance while online. It was exciting to use asynchronous javascript in a more complex way than before, which allowed us extra functionality under the hood.
