As a software developer with years of experience in analytics and project management, I seek to help organizations modernize their software challenges as well as help build structure into their backend and data systems.
After working as a finance analyst in various industries, including in technology, financial services, and manufacturing, I sought to challenge myself in software development -- something I had always wanted to learn -- at Turing's rigorous accredited program.
My interest lies in building sustainable software applications and enable the data to be used efficiently and analytically. Continuous learning is what I value, and building teams up is what I enjoy doing, either as a leader or an individual contributor.

This project entails frontend and backend applications to allow a user to be recommended cocktail drinks based on similar rating patterns of other users.
I primarily worked on the backend building the recommender system, where I called upon the
gem pycall in Rails and wrote python code. Other python gems used were
pandas to convert Rails tables into dataframes and series and
numpy for efficient calculations. In this app, the
euclidean_distances method was used to calculate collaborative filtering (ie, recommend cocktails based on similar user ratings), through importing
From this experience, I originally did not know that python could be written in a Rails app, but it can. The initial thought was to use a microservice for a separate python app built on the Flask or Django framework, but pycall ended up working.
A Rails application consuming four APIs (OpenWeather, Mapquest Geocode, Open Brewery, and Unsplash Images) and exposing six endpoints for a mock frontend website where users could login and map out their road trips to a destination and receive the weather forecast and local breweries.
This was a part of a solo and final assessment consuming the four APIs and integrating them such that a city and state location can be converted to coordinates (latitude and longitude). These coordinates were used to consume the weather API and expose a weather forecast (current, daily, and hourly).
Test coverage was 100% and determined edge cases where params may not be met and thus an error was provided as an endpoint.
Mock Online E-Commerce Shop
Mock Online E-Commerce Shop
A mock online shopping experience for merchants to analyze their items and invoices, this project enables merchants to view their products and view revenue generated from sold items.
In the first phase, this was a group project, where I managed the team to delivery, while coding major portions of the Rails application. While I have worked in many teams, I enjoyed leading in a software development project. I led the planning phase to delegating portions of the project to working on challenging parts to helping teammates out, while seeking their help when I reach an unproductive struggle to a problem. When any of us didn't know how to solve an issue, such as setting up the production environment, we reached out fellow cohort-mates for assistance.
In the second phase, this Rails application branched into a solo one, where I used complex ActiveRecord queries to identify bulk discounts. I also consumed a holiday API to be viewed on the website.
