Why I code.

I grew up passing my time playing games like Mario and Pokemon. One day in 2011 my friend asked me if I had ever heard of this game starting to blow up called Minecraft. Minecraft being the first I game played on a computer, really made me wonder what computer programming is. I decided to spend my afternoons modding the game with Java to see what this "programming" was all about. I soon began creating games, then apps, then websites, which is where I spend most of my time now. I love programming because it feeds my desires for creation, entrepreneurialism, and technology all in one activity.

Major Projects

Franchise Web Systems

The project was built with React and Jade with Node in the backend hosted with AWS. The project solved the issue of monotonous data entry for new applicants. New features used in the store used this project as a platform.
