I'm a University of Massachusetts Lowell graduate who is motivated and excited to start his career. Before graduating, I decided to partake in General Assembly's Web Development Immersive program. GA taught me the skills needed to be considered a Full Stack Web Developer.
My mother bought our home's first computer when I was ten years old. She had no clue how to use a computer, so I ended up teaching her the basics. Before I knew it, she was surfing the web like a pro. That experience made me fall in love with computers and software.
At UML, I was a Criminology and Justice Studies major with a concentration in Information and Technology and a minor in Business. It was there that I learned how to create simple webpages with HTML and CSS, but I wanted to learn more.
I personally believe that software has the power to bring people together. Social media apps like Facebook and Twitter connect people in ways that were not possible a few years ago. I want to be part of this revolution and contribute as much as I possibly can.
Below are some of the technologies that I've worked with at General Assembly.
Below are projects that I worked on at General Assembly. Follow the "Launch Project" link to view the live site.
The first project I completed at GA was a tic-tac-toe game. The goal for this project was to create a functional tic-tac-toe game from scratch using new tools we learned before hand. Players are able to start a fresh game, keep track of games, change their password, and sign out of the application.
This web application allows users to create players. Once a player is created, users are able to face them off against each other in a match. Within a match, they will determine the outcome and choose a winner, loser, or decide if it's a draw. The application will keep record of each player's wins and losses to make a standing table.
Raindrop is an E-commerce site that sells a variety of products. Users can browse a variety of products across a range of categories including: Electronics, Clothing, Entertainment and more! This project was completed by a group of three developers.
My final project at GA was Auxilio. Auxilio is a web application that connects customers to independent contractors. These contractors will fulfill any form of on-demand service a customer needs. The app is still in it's testing stages, but feel free to request a service!
ContactMe is a contacts management web application that safely stores all of your contacts!
I did more than just hit the books during my undergrad at UML. I spent some time at a non-profit organization and was part of a successful start-up. These jobs helped me gain valuable experience and the ability to multitask with a busy schedule.
