Army Ranger Veteran, private/government security contractor, and Special Operations Combat Medic are some of my previous jobs that required me to patch injured people and now I'm looking to patch web applications and software to better the world. Passion for coding, business, and adventure which I believe can all live in harmony together.
I've jumped out of perfectly good airplanes and jumped off of perfectly stable objects (BASE Jumping) with a parachute for fun! Now let me jump off my new career with the same tenacity I do these other passions.
Army Ranger Veteran, Special Operations Combat Medic, BASE Jumping extraordinaire & Web Developer Recruit.

Remind 2 Renew
Remind 2 Renew was my solo final project using ReactJS, MongoDB, ExpressJS, NodeJS, Agenda, Node Background Processes and several other technologies incorporated with it. The idea behind it was to allow users to add items to a tracker that they need to renew or be reminded about. When a user adds an item to their tracker, an item is created that sets an alert date that is chosen by the user and on the alert date an email will be sent to the user. The user can provide all information needed to make the renew process easier for them when the time comes. I had 4 and a half days to come up with an idea, plan, wireframe, code, and do a demonstration of my app. Not everything I wanted to incorporate into the app was able to make it in the MVP but I plan to continue coding the app to get to my initial thought for an MVP.
Task Lister was a group project using ReactJS along with Google Maps & Places API, Firebase DB and several other technologies incorporated with it. The idea behind it was to add tasks to your task list that has a location attached to your task. When you submit the task to your list it automatically adds a location on the map and creates a route for you so you can map your entire to do list, errands, or tourist spots you want to go checkout out. We had 4 and a half days to come up with an idea, plan, wireframe, code, and do a demonstration of our app. Not everything we wanted to incorporate into the app was able to make it in the MVP but we plan to continue coding the app to get to our initial thought for an MVP.

This was my first Hackathon to attend and participate in. It was put on by General Assembly and Wayblazer to introduce their AI API for travel. We were divided up into to teams of 5 which I was fortunate or unfortunate depending on how you look at it with being on a team of all WDI6 students which at the time I was in WDI6 as well. So being current students we came in as the underdogs. Within our team we split up into front and back end which I was on the back end team. The back end team had issues parsing the API but once we figured that out we divided and conquered parsing particular parts of the JSON and retrieving the data we wanted to render for the front end guys. We ended up getting 2nd place overall and were able to demo our app to the Wayblazer company a few weeks afterward.

This was our first group project which we used a MEN (MongoDB, ExpressJS, NodeJS) stack. CodeConnect.Us is a coding tutor locator which you can then create a tutoring session. The initial thought was to create a Austin specific application that would allow anyone interested in learning to code to find a tutor and sort them by what languages they know and then set up a tutoring session at a specific location. We also thought this could be a great tool to provide for underprivileged kids since this would be a free tutoring session application to help the tutors continue to master their own skills.
My first site built after two weeks in the General Assembly Web Dev Immersive course. My overall concept was to make a 3D style Tic Tac Toe that when you click on a square to put your X/O the cube would then randomly rotate to another side for the next player to play their turn. So you'd essentially be playing 6 games at once making the game a lot more difficult to predict like traditional Tic Tac Toe is. My concept was larger than my ability at the time of me creating this so I plan on updating this site as I continue to learn more.
