About Me
“Intuitive design and functionality are how we give the user new superpowers.”
I am a skilled developer, who strives to create applications with flawless functionality and a unique user experience.
Through my personal projects and internship experiences, I have realized that I love working with clients directly or with a team to create innovative solutions. Furthermore, my enthusiasm for technology, business, and the future inspires me to learn new things whenever an opportunity arises.
My major in Information Systems and minor in Computer Science have enriched my skills in object modeling and programming, providing me with both the skill-set to communicate between both programmers and non tech related titles. Balancing an undergraduate course load in Information Systems and Computer Science presents challenges as it is; however, with the addition of being a Division-I tennis player at UAB, I have learned how to manage my time between many tasks and commitments.

Order Tracking System

Created a web-application for a company named Importers Coffee Specialists who distribute coffee and coffee related products to retailers throughout South Africa. This web-application bridges the communication gap between employees, who pack the contents of each order, and upper-level employees who enter the orders into the system. The secondary purpose of this web-applicatoin is to track and display customer orders to employees who will pack the necessary items. Each order details the contents and the time remaining for the order to be packed and loaded. An app is currently in progress which displays packed orders to the companies delivery drivers. This will allow Importers Coffee Specialists to oversee a larger portion of their processes. Django is the primary framework used in this project. Please feel free to interact with the web-app by adding new products, clients or orders.

Modular Building System

I built a modular building system for a company named Mobile Rapid Building Methods (MRBM), who utilize a building system which reduces the time and labor to build a structure. The building system combine different sized shutters to create the walls of the building. My web-app calculates the most efficient combinations of each shutter to build the various portions of the structure. This process was previously done by hand through trial an error.

Gaming Website

I love to play first-person shooters when the time permits it. My enjoyment for playing well-built games lead me to create a fun website which displays some of the tools and tweaks I have used and learnt while playing. This is also the first website I built, which I have not changed, as a reminder of where I started.
