More About Me

Let me introduce myself.

Profile Picture

I'm a big nerd - I like Star trek, board games, and comics but my real passion is tech and development. I love how you can build products and solutions that can help people and causes. Build things that can have real actionable impacts in everyday life. Innovate on ideas that can take off and create whole ecosystems around it.

What I'm learning right now

Currently learning React so I can decouple my Rails apps and separate client-side functionality, reduce server calls, speed up page loads, and create more efficient code.

UI/UX Design

I've always had a designer or guidelines for my projects, but I've always found myself a little lost when it comes to making designs and user interfaces. I want to be more of a designer and be able to be a self suffient web developer.

But wait...

Why should you hire me?

Work Experience

Ruby on Rails Developer

November 2017 - present

Space Telescope Science Institute

I'm the main developer for a Ruby on Rails web app called ViewSpace. I help with the product owners and stakeholders to build out features and create workable solutions to their problems. I also semi-project manage the project with the product owner since there is no central project manager role. The web app uses Bootstrap 3 to create all the views that are written in HAML. I use JavaScript and jQuery as well for most of the front end interactions, along with some CSS3 transtitions to make the site snappy and snazzy. I'm also using capybara to write tests for my models, views, and overall functionality.

Informatica Developer/Tester
(as a consultant from Sogeti)

July 2017 - November 2017

T. Rowe Price

I rigorously test other Informatica Developers' mappings and workflows using hand written SQL scripts to make sure they followed the technical specifications as the client specified. I also learned Informatica to create and run my own ETL mappings and workflows that complied with the technical specifications given by the client.


Windows Application Developer
(as a consultant from Sogeti)

May 2017 - July 2017

Procter & Gamble

I created small WinForms programs in C# and .NET to both A) scrape data from certain word documents and compile into a single Excel Spreadsheet and B) pull certain word and pdf documents from a shared drive. Both were part of a data migration effort and for internal use only.

Web Developer
(as a consultant from Sogeti)

June 2015 - May 2017


I worked on their massive healthcare portal implementing client requested features, building out new functionality, and tackling their backlog of bugs. I worked with Git to check in all my code and scripts, an Oracle database for creating/modifying tables, Java for all the backend work, and Javascript/CSS/HTML for the frontend. I also reworked the majority of the main portal to make it more 508 Compliant. I also followed design guidelines that I later documented. I worked in an Agile workflow/SDLC with one-month sprints where I worked closely with a team that comprised of a Business Associate and a Tester.

Front-end Developer

April 2014 - June 2015

Decision Software Inc

I was brought on to implement their first set of web apps to allow clients to access our databases. I used a standard ASP.NET stack using C# to do any manipulations or anything that couldn't be done with Javascript. I also utilized the DevExpress libraries to bring features like graphs and pivot tables to let users have more control to see what they were trying to see.

Web Developer

June 2013 – March 2014

StrongDigital (formerly DevelopDC)

Small tech startup firm that worked on anything that a client wanted. Worked on standard marking websites to Ruby on Rails apps. For marketing sites, I used Wordpress and ExpressionEngine for client backend content management and Foundation and/or made custom CSS for front-end development.

Web Developer

Feburary 2012 - June 2013

Fintrac Inc

An agriculture solutions contractor for developing countries that brought me on to work on some in-house projects. Worked with standard ASP.NET stack utilizing primarily C# and where I picked up most of my working web development experience. Worked on an internal CRM web app, a document repository system, and other miscellanious solo projects for the company. I also helped doing IT help desk tasks like fixing laptops/desktops, printer issues, etc.


Bachelor Degree

Sept 2009 - Dec 2011

University of Maryland, Baltimore County

Majored in Information Systems, which is a program that is based around the whole ecosphere that comprises IT. Took programming to economic courses, even a few business ones too. It prepares students to do anything from development to network administration to project management.
I also minored in Computer Science because my true love in IT is programming.
