What I Do
I recently completed the fellowship program at Fullstack Academy where I mentored students, and also worked on the engineering team to maintain and improve the school's MEAN stack internal learning platform. I'm now searching for a full time web development position.
In two and a half weeks, built out the Express/Sequelize/PostgreSQL back-end of a journalling app that analyzes users' entries for emotion and generates a 3D explorable terrain from that data. Generating data from text that would create a visually interesting landscape was a fascinating challenge, and after experimenting with the Python implementation of Google's Word2vec, I decided to instead integrate two IBM Watson APIs to analyze the text for emotions and keywords. This created more interesting data, and also allowed me time to contribute to the front end styling and mobile responsiveness of the journalling app, and add some features to the 3D world using Three.js.
