What I Do
I am a software engineer and currently employed at App Academy as a Technical Instructor. I work with job-seeking students to refine projects and ensure they are completely prepared to enter the market as full-stack engineers. Additionally, I also develop and present technical curriculum.
I am solely responsible for the design and implementation of "emporia," an online community where users can post, browse, review, and "purchase" items from artists around the world. This Etsy-like site is built with Rails on the backend and React/ Redux on the front end. Photos are stored with AWS which creates an agile, dynamic site. Not only is the site impressive in and of itself, but it was also created over a 10 day period.
Additionally, I developed "Dogger" which is a single-page application where users must navigate obstacles in the spirit of Frogger.
