Professional Bio

I was fascinated by videogames growing up. I still am! Fast forward a couple dozen years later and here I am working as a software engineer. Even though I didn't end up creating games, during my studies I discovered I enjoyed writing and designing software no matter what the application is. Technology moves extremely quickly, so software engineers need to be able to learn new programming languages and technologies to adapt to the continually changing environment. This constant change is an amazing learning opportunity, and it keeps your mind fresh and the job interesting. I've programmed across all different stacks, but I most enjoy back-end development. It's not the glitziest part of an app, and the client will often never see it, but behind everything, it supports the entire application. I'm persistent, imaginative, and hard-working, and when I'm not coding, I enjoy spending time with my daughter, watching movies, and being a hobbyist astronomer.

Employment History

Senior Software Engineer

At FullStack Labs, I'm responsible for providing back-end development to our clients' complex projects. I'm currently working on:

  • Gases Del Caribe, an app for Colombian natural gas companies to manage work orders. I'm connecting a back end built in Node.js and Nest.js to a React-based front end, as well as using NodeJ for token authentication.

I previously worked on:

  • Esko Bionics, a leading manufacturer of human exoskeletons. My team and I developed an ETL pipeline and dashboard for physicians and patients to view and monitor data coming from the exoskeletons. I connected a front end built with React to a Node.js and Ruby on Rails back end using bearer token authentication.
