About Me

Professional Backend, Hobbyist Frontend, Aspiring Full-Stack Engineer

I've spent the past few years as a Software Engineer II at Lockheed Martin Space supporting a real-time satellite data distribution program. My time there has taught me the importance of well tested, scaleable, and performant code. I quickly became a key contributor with my work on Docker containerized client software, programming in-house developer and test tools, and optimizing our Elastic stack

I earned my bachelor's degree in Computer Engineering from Purdue University and worked internships at Northrop Grumman and Buildout.

During my free time, you can find me performing in comedy shows (improv and sketch) at Rise Comedy, rollerblading, and running.

Featured Projects

Buildout Social Media Integration

At Buildout, I developed a RESTful API Web Service using Ruby on Rails in MacOS that leveraged the APIs of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram to integrate them into Buildout. I designed a frontend user experience that connected to our Web Service to allow Buildout users to securely log in, post to, and get insights from their preferred social medias.

Website for Comedy Show Advertisement and Audition Registration

My improv group needed a stronger online presence and simple software tools to help streamline tasks. I designed a CRUD website where we can post info, embed our livestream shows, allow users to create an account, upload media and register for our auditions, as well as support admin accounts that have permissions to edit frontend website elements.
