Professional Bio

I have always loved videogames and grew up wanting to develop them. When the time came to pick a career, I picked the closest thing possible and became a software developer. I enjoy building solutions that make clients' lives easier, whether in insurance, education, health care, or any of the other spaces I've worked in. My favorite language is Ruby; after years of developing in PHP and Java, I was impressed with its simplicity and the support of its generous community. I'm driven, focused, and flexible, and I enjoy playing videogames during the week and spending quality time with my family on the weekends.

Employment History

FullStack Labs August 2020 - Present

Senior Software Engineer

At FullStack Labs, I'm responsible for improving apps by migrating them from legacy code bases. I'm currently working on:

  • FINTRX, a comprehensive family office intelligence platform which helps users identify, access, and raise capital from family offices. I'm rewriting the app to move it from its legacy framework to a newer version of Ruby on Rails, along with React and Redux.js.
Globant October 2018 - August 2020

Web UI Developer

Globant is a multinational IT and software development company. As a Web UI Developer, I:

  • Helped build the web app interface for Metromile, an auto insurance startup. The app provides insurance quotes, allows users to purchase insurance, and includes a dashboard for users to manage vehicles and drivers. I rewrote the interface from Angular.js to Angular 7 and presented the client feature demos at the end of each sprint. The app was also written in Java and NGRX.
  • Rewrote Imagine Learning, which offers language, literacy, and math programs used by K–12 students and teachers. I migrated the legacy song library to React and mapped all the API endpoints with React Query in a React project to serve as a base for the rest of the team to build upon. The app also utilized Anglar.js and React Context.

Ruby on Rails Developer

Growth Acceleration Partners is a continuous software delivery partner that offers analytics, cloud, mobile, and QA services. As a Ruby on Rails Developer, I:

  • Updated Grades First, a program that lets tutors track college students' grades and progress through their courses. I migrated the legacy code from Rails 2 to Rails 3 and performed general maintenance and feature development. The app also uses Ember.js.
