Full-Stack Web Application Development Experience
Passionate About technology
Binary flows through my veins. Since I was a kid, I've had a passion for computers and technology, and started programming very early on. Today, I constantly seek out the latest tech to figure out how it can improve my daily life, professional career, and ministry. I love exploring the fun and excitement these new advancements can bring about.
Repositories and Web Presence
These multipurpose tiles make ideal presentations for project showcases or as links to auxilary pages around your site.
Relatively little of my work is public. My Github profile contains repos for some of the smaller side-projects I've had time to work on.

Pokémon Team Randomizer
Solo Side Project
I built this project with the influence of several friends. We enjoy playing Pokémon Stadium using randomized teams and wanted a quick way to generate those teams for fun matches with a unique variety of strategy. The project went through several implementations including a Java Swing build, an Android app, and eventually to this beautiful and functional web app with Bulbapedia and PokéAPI integration.
This project is built on Node.js, MongoDB, AngularJS, and Foundation for Apps.
Solo Side Project
At my church, we usually set up a laptop or iPad in the back of the venue and display a countdown timer onscreen so that the pastor knows how much time he has left. Some native apps do the trick nicely, but we could not find a web solution that worked well. This project is both an easy URL to remember, and has a number of features that make it very useful for the specific purpose of timing a sermon.sermontimer.com
Education And Publications
In 2009, I graduated from Belmont University with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and a Bachelor of Science in Audio Engineering Technology.
I participated in several research opportunities, including an REU in the Software Engineering department at the University of Alabama. I also placed second for student papers at ACM SE '12 along with my roommate Josh for our work on Finding Effective Search Strategies for the TwoBik Puzzle.
