Summary

## Summary ##

Full-stack engineer strong in **JavaScript**, **React**, **Redux**, **Node.js**, **SQL**, and **noSQL**, **building APIs** and **building front-ends** that interface with them. Excels in a fast-paced and collaborative environment, using experienced and new technologies to solve challenging problems.

## Projects I’ve worked on ##

Most recently, I worked at Mark43, building the front-end UI for our records management system. I built Admin Pages in **React** and **Redux** and **Elasticsearch** to support text and advanced filtering for User and Roles Dashboards. I also created new features such as Active user Assignments, report non-disclosures for record privacy, and a mugshot lineup UI reduce police officers’ search times by 80-90%.

Previously, I worked with a team of engineers in LiveAPI, an open-source project that creates an API for any website’s data. This end-to-end solution solves engineers from building custom web crawlers for each public dataset needed to be extracted. LiveAPI leverages a user-deployable server to programmatically create endpoints from a Chrome extension-based UI. It detects user actions with a custom algorithm that traverses the DOM from child to ancestor and stores data in a NoSQL-based cache to improve efficiency by 75%.

At Breakaway Practice, I worked on a geospatial software for pinpointing underserved areas in the US to build our next dental practices. I created a data extraction tool with PhantomJS to get practice geolocations from Healthgrades with DOM scripts, which were ultimately used to calculate the dental practice saturation in a given area.

## A little about me ##

I enjoy working on projects that solve frustrating problems, giving people some time back in their day. When I’m not coding, I’m curled up on a sofa reading a book, exploring new restaurants in the city, or volunteering at America Needs You – a non-profit providing career guidance for first-generation college graduates.

## What I’m looking for next ##

I’m looking for a company that is going through high-growth, has a strong engineering team, and stands firmly behind its culture. Passion is contagious, so I’m excited to enjoy a team passionate about the product they’re building, candid about feedback and growth, solving challenging problems.
