I cans Code

Yeah, well, you know, that's just like aaah, my opinion, man.


Not seeing my Space Force picture? It's here. Try looking in an "alternate dimension"!! Muahhahaha! Anyways, hello! I'm a former math teacher and University of Utah graduate who has decided to leave public education to persue a career in web development. Below you'll find a general overview of the code I've been learning these past couple years. Please visit my Projects page to get an idea of my work. Mostly just itterations of this site, and in the end, I decided on a vanilla setup. Keepin it simple.

HTML, CSS & JavaScript


I have lots of experience working with these three. Years ago I learned HTML & CSS and over the past couple years I've learned a lot about JavaScript. It has always been important to me to know the fundamentals.

React JS


After the big 3, React is my best known front-end framework. I can build reusable components, pass props, manage state, handle events, make asynchronous calls, use lifecycle methods, and much more.

Node JS


Working with Node I've learned boilerplating, API creation & management, using express middleware, setting up development environments, deploying to production, making use of environment variables, etc.



AWS is an absolute beast. I've used the following: Cognito, DynamoDB, RDS (postgres), Lambda, API Gateway, IAM rolls, Route 53, S3 buckets, EC2 for VMs, and others.



I have over 30 repos on Github. I've contributed to open source projects making pull-requests, cloning repos, branching and merging, and using the CLI.



I've built just over 4 websites using WordPress. Making custom themes, using plugins, tweeking PHP code, custominzing CSS, editing SQL databases, and managing media.



I write Python when tinkering around on my Raspberry Pi and love it! I've made a small web-scraping app, built a home security project, and played with a bevey of sensors beepers and other cool things.



I'm just starting to learn GoLang but so far I've made a basic API, connected a database for CRUD operations. I love the versatitly of this language and it's executable nature.



So far I've used databases in AWS (DynamoDB & RDS), MongoDB, MariaDB, mySQL (with some PHP). Some of these were ran locally via Docker but others were used with the Serverless architecture using GraphQL.
