I’ve always loved technology. As a teenager, I was fascinated by the process of jailbreaking my iPod Touch and replacing the Springboard background with a live HTML file that cycled background images.
After spending a few years working in news, I decided to pursue my real passion. I spent the next year doing online classes to brush up on things I’d learned in my computer science minor.
I am a self-taught web developer who loves solving problems. I spent two hours learning web technologies every day of the last year because I love it.
I will work hard and learn from anyone I can to become a better full-stack web developer. I hope to hear from you!
Though I have not had the opportunity to work in the tech industry, I built these projects to showcase my development abilities.
All are Angular 6+ applications served by Node servers. The first two implement the full MEAN stack.
Dragon Collector is a website for collecting and generating pixel art dragons.
Interesting problem: I had to figure out how to generate random shades of a specific color.
My color generation algorithm uses charts of color shades to establish bounds for RGB values, then generates random numbers within those values.

To create a column, my algorithm finds the longest title and uses that plus some padding for the column's width.
It also uses a system akin to CSS breakpoints to calculate how many rows there should be to have an appealing height-width ratio. It then lays out the titles across rows, concatenating the game titles into the total string as it goes.

What Should I Play Next?
What Should I Play Next is a client-side Angular app for finding new games to play based on their ratings. It uses the Giant Bomb API as well.
Interesting problem: I had to understand the minute details of the API in order to get the data I wanted (review scores sorted by platform), which was not supported.
To solve the problem, I did repeated requests against the API to get reviews then filtered those by platform.
