Performs with the understanding that listening is key to getting to the root of the issue and once discovered, is able to clearly communicate steps to resolving the problem.

Over the past year and a half, I have dedicated over 550+ days to learning, practicing, and building with programs like JavaScript, Python, and many frameworks such as React, Flask, Node.js, Redux, CSS, HTML5, and SQL. I enjoy problem-solving with these tools and have learned to be self-sufficient in answering questions and resolving issues. Some of my notable projects include designing and developing a beer rating app, creating a vehicle rental and hosting platform with full CRUD functionality, and contributing to a music streaming service with React and Redux.
