If you’re wondering who I am…
I have two+ years of commercial developer experience! Specifically, I have focused on front-end applications but have also worked with NodeJS, PHP, and Python.
I am always seeking to
Away from the desk, I enjoy surfing and stand-up comedy.

I built a fully-functional social media application! Users can post, share, like, and comment on each other's posts. The application will also recommend Users to follow. The application is built using React/Redux, along with Express and Firebase. Using React Router, it fetches data based on the URL, so you can easily reload the page and the data will continue to be fetched. Along with the use of lazy loading on images and error handling, it is a very performant application.

This very website you're now watching. I wanted something fast and with good SEO for my portfolio, so a static website generator like Gatsby seemed like the best fit. It reads data from markdown files, so it's super easy for me to keep adding Portfolio items as I keep developing stuff. It also has a cool dark mode switch since I couldn't decide between a dark or light design.

An application to connect language-learners around the world. The app allows a User to join as either a teacher/student, and complete their profile, send messages to teachers/students, and book lessons. Through PayPal, the application also acts an intermediary for each lesson. The motivation for building the application was to easily enable people to find and conveniently online language-learning lessons, something I experienced personally while living in Korea.
A simple project to use React Hooks and Context API, I built a hotel homepage, and allow a User to search for different rooms based on their requirements. The data is supplied by Contentful which allows a Client to easily update their site as new options become available.

A simple app that allows a User to search for and listen to Wikipedia articles! The simple project was inspired as a fan of audio books and multitasking in general. The User can adjust the voice, rate and pitch to suit them. The app fetches the articles using the MediaWiki API and speaks them using the WebSpeech API.

Discord Bots to automate various alerts and actions! The Bots are tailored toward the financial markets community and provide price alerts when various different price conditions are satisfied. Accordingly, each alert is based off a different algorithm that can be adjusted to apply to each particular market. I often worked with several other developers to build the most accurate algorithm to reflect specific price alert required.
