Full Stack Software Developer

About Me


I am a full-stack software developer from McMaster University with almost two years of professional experience using an Angular, C# .NET, Oracle PL/SQL stack with Azure user authentication and agile project management with JIRA.

I find myself working my best when I understand what problem I am trying to solve and keeping the end-game in mind along the way. As such, I consider keeping regular communications with clients and other developers a priority to ensure expectations are met and what is thought of current progress.

I am always interested in expanding my knowledge of technologies in this rapidly changing industry.

Interests


Experimenting with New Tech

Experimenting with a variety of programming languages, frameworks, and technologies. I find learning different ways to solve the same problem interesting and valuable to stay on top with the constantly changing trends.

Creation in General

I have always enjoyed creating cool things through woodworking, welding, gardening, software, and hardware. I am always on the lookout for new in-home projects.

Enjoying Nature

I love bouldering, photography, long hikes, and camping. I have been enjoying nature in everyway I can since I was child in Cub Scouts. I grew up on a back-country road with no neighbours and find getting lost in the woods to feel just like home.
