I'm a full-stack developer and designer from Dallas, Texas. I have experience working on a variety of projects, such as websites, video games, software for modding game consoles, and more! I work as a software engineer and do other development and design work in my free time.
I was raised in a suburb of Dallas, Texas with my parents, a younger brother, and a younger sister. I was always interested in technology and wanted to be a game developer when I was younger. I played a lot of games on both retro and modern consoles, interesting me in the inner workings of video games.
In high school, I was able to skip the first year of computer science and start taking advanced classes. Because of this, I was invited to join the Computer Science Team, where I was able to learn more about programming in Java. I took home numerous awards, even winning second place in UT Dallas' Battle of the Brains competition.
I am currently attending The University of Texas at Dallas for my bachelor's and master's degrees in computer science. I became president of UTDesign Makerspace, an open lab with fabrication tools at UT Dallas. Outside of work and school, I have worked on a variety of projects, like an award winning game and a Steam Deck modding tool.
Below are the skills I use most often. Please note that this is not a complete list of all languages and frameworks I have used.
I use Node.js, Express, MongoDB, and other tools to create backend software like Discord bots and test automation packages.
I use React frameworks like Gatsby and Next.js to create websites. I also have worked on software for various platforms.
I have experience leading teams and projects, including being president of a makerspace and maintaining open-source projects.
