About Me



I am currently in my last year at Texas A&M University where I am in the process of earning an undergraduate degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science track. I am also pursuing minors in Mathematics and Cybersecurity. I will be taking my talents to the Bay Area to work on Adobe XD

My past experiences include a position as an Assistant Warehouse Manager for Melody International which allowed me to develop skills in a fast-paced work environment. I have also worked as an IT Student Technician where I interacted directly with customers on a daily basis in order to resolve any issues they experienced. As an Undergraduate Teaching Fellow, I had the opportunity to teach other students close to my age a technical subject as well as having to prepare before hand to answer any questions about the topic at hand. I have had experience working in a large corporate environment at Capital One and have worked part time at a software consulting firm where I completed and developed features following the Agile framework.

In order to balance school work and my work hours, I have had to rely on my strong work ethic as well as master my people and time management skills. From hours on the phone working on the computer support team to hours in the classroom helping others succeed in their academics, I always enjoy the challenge at hand.

Personal Projects

These are a collection of projects I have been completed on my own free time

Python
Flix with Friends
Flix with Friends is a program that helps users decide what movie they should watch. It reads through spreadsheets or Google Sheets that have names of movies that users would like to watch. The program searches through a movie database to pull descriptions, ratings and various poster sizes to present in an IMDb-like interface to help users decide on what movie to watch based on search criteria like keywords, release date, rating and which of the users has seen the movie.

Matlab
Periodic Table GUI
The main function is eleminfo(). The function will display a periodic table of elements for eleminfo(0). Currently, only one element can be selected for information. Another use of the function is to either type in an element name or symbol. The name or symbol must be string, i.e. eleminfo('He'). For element symbols, the first letter must be capitalized.
