Professional Bio

I like the idea of creating new things and making life easier, and my work as a Mobile Engineer lets me create applications to help people and businesses alike. I've had the opportunity to create mobile apps from scratch for high-profile clients like Aetna and Al Jazeera. I'm curious, passionate, and disciplied, and I enjoy working in VSCode, Git, Java, JavaScript, and React Native. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, listening to music, and exercising.

Employment History

FullStack Labs March 2018 - Present

Senior Software Engineer

At FullStack Labs, I'm responsible for creating beautiful, robust mobile apps using React Native and other technologies. I'm currently working on:

  • Reconvelocity, the premier vehicle reconditioning software for new and used car dealerships. I'm in charge of migrating the whole codebase to TypeScript for the React Native mobile app and adding new features, fixing bugs, and updating the UI.

I previously worked on:

  • Bestest, an Instagram-style social polling application that allows live voting, public opinion gathering, and group decision-making. I added new features to the React Native mobile app, improved overall performance, added coverage for unit and UI tests, and pushed hotfixes through Codepush. I also implemented and customized native to work with React Native. The app was also written with Node.js.

Mobile Engineer

Koombea is a software consultancy based in Miami, Florida. While a Mobile Engineer, I:

  • Worked on the the Android app for Al Jazeera News, which delivers curated stories, and live and on-demand video free of charge. The app required developing three separate versions for three different languages, each involving its own features. I focused on the news feed and the in-app browser. The project was developed with Java, AWS, and SQLite.
  • Helped build WellMatch, an app run by Aetna that provides cost transparency for health providers and patients. I led development of the app's Android version and provided overall support and bug fixes.
