Hire Me Because

I am genuinely interested in web/software development, and I’m excited about the possibilities it opens up. I am eager to learn–whether that is through my professional or personal experience–and apply that knowledge.

My Capstone Project: ChowNow

ChowNow is a full-stack Java application, built on the Spring Boot framework, implementing OAuth 2.0, AWS S3, and the Spoonacular API. It seeks to create a community of users who can easily find and save recipes based on the ingredients in their virtual pantries. Users may also share original recipes and follow their favorite user-chefs. In addition to the technologies mentioned, ChowNow incorporates CSS and Bootstrap styling, Thymeleaf form-model binding, and includes Javascript and JQuery.

“With technology, I am most passionate about the internet in general, and web development more specifically. Speaking about the internet in the nineties, David Bowie described its future as "something exhilarating and terrifying." The internet has changed everything about our society, and I want to be a part making it something positive.
