Full Stack Web Developer

I am a Full Stack Web Developer who recently graduated from Centriq Training's Full Stack Coding Program (10/6/2023).

For some background, I consider myself to be a Multi-passionate Creative with many hobbies and interests, spanning from martial arts and pickleball to musical instruments and languages to plants, crafts, and cats. I firmly believe that life is a journey.

Over the last several months, I’ve acquired the skills needed to create several personal projects including a personal website, a dungeon crawler C# console app, SQL relational database, an e-commerce site with connection to a relational database, a To Do list app using ReactJS and the corresponding web API, a scheduling administration tool web application, and an administrative internal intranet web application.

And, the list continues to evolve as I work to continuously improve my technology stack and skills.

My previous experience involves public sector Human Resources, Finance, and Technology (5 years) and retail/customer service (10+ years).

If you have an opportunity for me, please feel free to reach out as I'd be happy to have a conversation.
