A Bit About Me

With over 19 years of combined experience in front and back-end web development, I am deeply passionate about UI/UX Design and Testing. My expertise in languages and frameworks such as React.js, Node.JS, HTML, CSS, Javascript/JQUERY, AngularJS, and L.A.M.P., along with my strong understanding of Object-Oriented Programming within MVC Frameworks, has allowed me to design and develop custom software platforms, such as the one for Portland Guitar Academy. My work in enhancing user experience is evident in the 18,000+ practice hours logged by students.

Beyond my technical skills, I have a profound passion for computer science, game development, and music. This diverse set of interests drives my creativity and innovation in the tech industry. My freelance development work, coupled with my pursuit of a Master's degree, reflects my dedication and relentless pursuit of excellence. As I continue to explore my options, I'm eager to find a company where I can contribute long-term and continue to grow both personally and professionally.

Portfolio

Portland Guitar Academy Online Learning Suite
(PGAOLS) is an online learning platform for guitar students that I have designed and built from scratch. This tool has been used by hundreds of users and tends of thousands of practice hours have been logged on it. The challenge is to design a learning platform that is fun and intuitive to use and also contains the tools students need in order to become well rounded guitar players.

 

The entire tool is mobile responsive and it contains many fun and interactive features (as seen below).
