July 2024 Update:

The projects showcased on my website are now three to four years old, reflecting the early stages of my journey as a web developer. Since then, I have grown significantly in my skills and expertise, continuously learning and adapting to new technologies and best practices. Despite their age, I am leaving these projects up because they demonstrate the potential and promise I had as a new web developer, highlighting the solid foundation I built upon to reach my current level of proficiency.

Who am I?

I am a former mechanical engineer turned full-stack developer. I have a diverse background that includes experience in aerospace, automotive manufacturing, supporting the International Space Station program, wine production, and viticulture. I helped create and maintain flight planning tools for NASA while working at Barrios Technology. That's when I discovered that I enjoyed programming and felt like I may have missed my calling as a developer. The seed was planted and a year later I decided to make a career change and pursue web development full time.
