Objective

I want to bring new and innovative software to the world with the goal of making life simpler and easier to enjoy.

What I've Done

I have been previously employed with three companies in the DFW area. My most recent position with RMG Networks consisted of working closely with several open source technologies with the goal of building a new SaSS platform from the ground up (similar to that of a startup). This was the closest to open source, Full-stack development I have ever experienced. The technologies included NodeJS, HTML, CSS, PostGres, MySQL, Laravel, PHP, and a whole lot of Javascript.

Before my position with RMG Networks, I was employed with a software company called nThrive (formerly MedAssets). nThrive is a Healthcare performance improvement company focused on enhancing financial and operational systems for providers so they can better serve their communities. More specifically, I worked on the Business Intelligence side using MicroStrategy and TIBCO Spotfire to present vital statistics to our customers so they can perform detailed financial analysis.

At the start of my career, I worked with a networking company in Richardson, TX. The internship with APCON was centered on a SCRUM approach of development using Android Studio. APCON Mobile allows owners of APCON Switches and Chassis to monitor alerts remotely and securely. I have had the opportunity to work with tools such as TortiseSVN, Mantis, Jenkins, TestRail, TechPubs, and Android Studio with LogCat.

    PinPoint Application Performance Management (APM)
    Designed the FrontEnd in Angular 5 for an open-sourced, Java based Application Performance Management application. The application earned a very prestigious award within Capital One, The Circle of Excellence Award, for collaborating with the original developers to make more than 60 feature and security enhancements, dozens of which we contributed back to the open source community. Pinpoint is being used on more than 150 applications across Technology and allows us to take control of our capabilities within enterprise monitoring, as well as develop and adapt monitoring capabilities based on business, customer or technology needs.

    Monitoring Intelligence Portal - as Tech Lead
    The primary feature request was build a portal to house links for separate websites internal to Capital One that were being used for onboarding new customers that needed monitoring. After gathering requirements from individual teams dedicated to separate monitoring data sources, it became clear that a portal to allow self service was necessary. Once the proof of concept was approved the portal was built and excel forms became obsolete. Self service ability to onboard with ELK stack was achieved. Tech - Angular 4, Java Spring Boot, PostgreSQL (Full-Stack).

    Open Source Repo and ISRM contributions
    Contributed to the Innersource community by submitting my code to dedicated repositories and documenting steps for usage in Github as well as worked with ISRM to help Eratocode identify package licenses for evaluation.
