Junior Software Engineer
A Sydney based third-culture-kid with a passion for learning new things and putting plans into action. My Software Engineering journey began in 2019 by saying yes to my first Wordpress project for a family business.
After a quick google of “how to build a website” and a few MDN links and some jQuery sliders; I was hooked. Since then, I have been in the constant search to broaden my skill set and always search for that “ah-ha” moment.
The moment when an idea turns into a reality and the moment when what you’ve built has a positive, tangible, impact on another person or business.
My short term goals are to continue expanding upon my current stack, gain mentorship and work within diverse teams to achieve the same accomplishments at a larger scale.
Drip Coffee is a subscription coffee ecommerce store built with the MERN stack (MongoDB, Express, React & Node). This project uses Redux for state management, Stripe for payment processing and MongoDB as a NoSQL database. The greatest challenges of this project were managing state through Redux, ensuring the shopping cart clears and adds products effectively, and to que the appropriate order creation and stripe payment functions within the Redux actions.
paperClip is an interactive chat application that facilitates the creation and preservation of memories with friends around the world. This project was a great opportunity to manage a React & Rails project within a team. Shout outs to Jim, Zoha, Andre. The biggest challenges with this project were managing React Router, working with our Rails API to authenticate users and be able to get messages actively when the user is logged in.
Sydney Social Cricket Club
Sydney Social Cricket Club is an interactive platform where players looking to find a team, and teams can fill out their players and enjoy some cricket. The application was built with Ruby on Rails and PostgresSQL for a database and has full CRUD capabilities for both Teams and Players.
Tic Tac Toe
Sometimes the simplest and funnest things can be the hardest to do! This is a simple Tic Tac Toe game with the ability to choose their emoji icon and replay the game when someone wins and loses. The challenges of this project were ensuring the tie, win and loss conditions all action in the appropriate sequence. Best parts of this project was seeing the object orientated approach come to life and using utility methods to save on repetition, create a better UI, and keep things DRY.
Olive & Grain
Olive & Grain is a Sydney based delicatessen specialising in platters, cakes and quiches. This project was built in WordPress and has eCommerce functionality through WooCommerce. I handled all of the asset development for this project; images formatting, logo design, colour pallette sourcing, web design and development. The site was built using jQuery, HTML, CSS and WordPress. The site was designed in Figma and sent out for client approval. Then I began building out the front-end. After, I broke down back end tasks into manageable tasks to ensure the project was delivered on time, and under budget.
Doctor Maria is a Melbourne based cosmetic surgeon. This site functions as a brochure site for her cosmetic services, as well as a booking platform to assist in managing her client booking.
