JUNIOR FULL-STACK WEB DEVELOPER

Profile

A junior full-stack Web Developer who loves Linux and open-source software.

I'm a BCIT Computer Science alumni who constantly researches new programming languages, frameworks and techniques. I came to Lighthouse Labs to become more confident in the development of modern applications and to get involved in the tech industry as fast as possible. I'm looking forward to developing a variety of awesome projects with a great team.

I love fixing computers and teaching others to solve computing problems. I also love playing and designing video games, taking on the role of Dungeon Master in D&D, cooking delicious food and hiking.

Projects

StoryPath (Github)

Constructed in 4 days with a 3 person team at Lighthouse Labs for a midterm project. Used Ruby and Sinatra to construct an online Choose Your Own Adventure collaborative story writing app. The database was designed in traditional SQL and implemented with ActiveRecord.

This project went viral! It stayed at #1 on reddit.com/r/humor for 2 days straight!

Project Cara Cara (In Progress)

Currently constructing a mobile game in Unity3D using C#. Prototype is complete, but requires art assets and sound design. On top of development, I'm also creating music for the game using Ableton Live Suite 9. Multi-player variants are in the works as well.
