I recently began a new position working as a developer on a programme at Cardiff University. I was hired specifically to help build the new student app. So far I've used React and React Native to build a mobile application for iOS and Android featuring third party integrations as well as ones developed in house. I'm excited for the first version of the app to be released and can't wait add new features and improvements down the line.

While interning at Skyscanner, I developed internal dashboards used for displaying and manipulating data pertaining to Skyscanner's hotel partners. Working with other interns, I created APIs and integrated them into the front-end using HTML, CSS, Angular.js, also working with databases using PostgreSQL. During my time here I learned a variety of front and back-end technologies as well as software development tools while working with a great team in a fun, fast-paced environment.

As a Software Engineering student at Cardiff University, I was able to take modules that helped me develop the fundamentals of computing and software development. In contrast with the Computer Science students, the Software Engineers learned not only programming languages and theories, but software development methodologies and project management techniques as well. By pairing programming theory with practical coursework, I was able to quickly learn concepts and further develop them by practice.
About five years ago, I packed up my life, stuffed it into two suitcases, and moved overseas. This all started with a late-night research session on studying abroad, leading to the possibility of earning a degree abroad, and eventually ending with my acceptance at Cardiff University. I knew that I wanted to travel and see the world, and that I wanted to finish my education. So far, I've been able to do both of those things.
For most of my life I was heavily invested in the arts - design and photography were my outlets. Probably sometime during the Myspace era, I discovered HTML and CSS. This discovery grew into an exciting new hobby which, as you can see, led to an even more exciting career. I still practice drawing and design regularly, and run a travel blog dedicated to my travel experiences and photography. When I'm not coding, I enjoy reading (mainly historical fiction and sci-fi), cooking (Italian and Mexican dishes are my favorite), and drinking coffee (I'm kind of an addict).
I'm always happy to make new contacts in my field, so please feel free to contact me.
