What I Do

Software Developer

At USF, I took a few computer science classes including C#, SQL, System Architecture & Design, Information Security, and Data Communications. These courses have helped build a foundation for my career.

During my time at Suncoast Developers Guild, I refined skills in both front-end and back-end development. On the front-end, I learned HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and React. On the back-end, I learned .NET Core, C#, SQL, ASP.NET Web APIs, and EntityFramework. For my final project, I created a full-stack web-application combining all of these technologies. I enjoyed working on this project with another person as it helped prepare me to work on team projects in a professional environment.

Student

During my time at the University, I fine-tuned my habits to stay successful and on top of my game. It took me a while to develop a balance between school and work, but I have overcome this challenge over time. After about two years into college, I switched to online courses instead of having classes on campus. Because of this switch, it made working a fulltime job substantially more manageable. It allowed me to focus more and create my schedule around my job. I have gained valuable skills that I will carry with me into my professional career

Manager

During my almost five years at Chick-Fil-A, I moved into a management position. As the Director Of Operations, I oversaw the day to day operations of the store. In this role, I gained valuable management experience that has helped me become a better leader. Being in charge of all health inspections and quality visits was a big hurdle to overcome. It was a great experience to learn how to keep a clean, safe, and effective store. Learning what goes into Working with and managing an entire kitchen staff helped me understand what it takes to be an effective manager. I became more disciplined and learned how to convey the companies vision, rules, and policies to the staff.

Gamer

Growing up, Video Games were a significant part of my life. I enjoyed playing with my friends online and working as a team to beat our opponents. I would also play solo open-world games that fully immerse you in the experience. Playing games was my first introduction to how code works inside of an environment. I would always wonder how gaming companies could create an interactive world that connects multiple players around the globe. Some of these solo games were gigantic worlds that could take months to explore fully. I was intrigued by how all of these games worked. I was inspired to learn how video game coding works, and I wanted to see under the hood of these complex gaming environments.
