Background

I'm currently a QA Automation intern at Menlo Security making lives easier for my coworkers. I'm also studying Computer Science at Foothill College with a plan to transfer to a University of California upon graduation.

As a software developer, I strive to develop applications that are both efficient and user-friendly. My drive for coding comes from knowing I've built well-designed products that users will love to use and recommend to their friends and families.

When I'm not in front of a computer screen, I'm probably hanging out with my girlfriend, riding around the Bay Area on my road bike, or sitting out in the sun with my dog.

Currently seeking internship opportunities!

Firefly is a fullstack web application clone of Awwwards, siteInspire, and lapa who's purpose is to "shed light on inspiring sites from around the web". Firefly was a testbed for me to practice and gain experience using a JavaScript framework (Vue.js) as well as allowing me to further develop my general web development skills.

The first browser extension I built designed to improve the medium experience. I found that Medium bookmarks weren't helpful if you hadn't finished an article, so I devised my own solution making use of Medium's fragment identifiers given to each element in an article. This allows users to save their spot in any article.

Node.js HTML CSS

Hundreds of quotes on design from creatives, for creators. Using the Quotes on Design API, this app brings many enlightening, inspiring, and sometimes humorous quotes to your pocket. A must-have if you ever need some extra inspiration.

A Yeoman generator used to scaffold a static site for an existing project, one usually hosted on GitHub. It will create a /docs folder containing the site files and resources which then enables you to host your project's newly-created site by enabling GitHub pages from the /docs folder in the master branch.
