About me

I am a front end engineer with a background in sales. I have a passion for learning and problem solving. I enjoy collaborating with others to create efficient and well designed web applications.

When I'm not in front of my computer, I enjoy hikes with my dog, teaching spin class, and listening to live music at Red Rocks.

Tools Used

  • Cypress
  • React

Doogle is my final solo project for Mod3 at The Turing School of Software and Design Front End program. The original project spec can be found here.

This application is a play on the very popular dating website called Tinder. However, instead of matching with humans, users are matching with Golden Retrievers. On the landing page, users will see a 'dog card' with an image of a golden retriever, a red 'x' and a green 'heart' appear. If the user would like to match with a dog, they can click the green heart on the bottom right hand corner of the card and a new dog image will render. The match will be added to the user match list. If the user does not want to match with the dog, they can click the red 'x' and a new dog image will appear. If the user would like to view their matches, they can click 'Your Matches' on the nav bar where all dog cards that were matched will display. If the user would like to delete a match, they can click on the 'delete button'.

Backyard Burbs is an application created for the Mod 3 group project. We had the opportunity to choose a new technology to self-study and implement. Based on personal interest and suggestions from our mentors we chose to learn Context - a Global State Management tool. Along with hooks, context is a powerful tool to simplify how data is passed to nested components.

The app itself is designed to be a fun and colorful tool for children to begin identifying the birds in their backyard. You begin on a page showing a map of the USA. Please choose your state and then you will be guided to a list of the birds in your area. Simply click on the bird you believe you see, and you'll find more details such as: more images, the scientific name, the last time that bird was seen, and how many were seen. Click the binoculars and add that bird to your own list! A few design considerations we prioritized were: simplicity, large and responsive buttons, and color.
