Full Stack Software Engineer

Three years experience of building single and multiple-page applications. I have worked with small teams building personal projects for hack-a-thons where I focused on back-end dev & TDD. I have an eye for being able to backwards engineer most things and figure out how they work and/or how to improve on them. I have done this with coding, music and point of sale systems.

  • Freelance: Available

I have spent years as a manager in various operation roles and have a proven track record of increasing sales, cultivating a team mentality, growing staff and guest satisfaction while maintaining the highest level of quality through writing training programs and exceeding monetary goals.

Since then, I began to teach myself coding and eventually enrolled in a course to solidify my skillset. While I primarily have worked on my own as a freelancer, I have also worked with small teams building personal projects for hack-a-thons where I focused on back-end and front-end development as well as tested and debugged other people's code.

I have a passion for learning and I have discovered coding gives me the same sense of wonder that music has for my entire life. Currently, I am working as a Freelance Developer while looking for a role with a great team that will provide me with a chance to expand my developing skills and give me the opportunity to contribute in a meaningful way.

Testimonials

Jonathan created a custom feature on our website for us. He visualized our project beautifully, took what we (literally!) sketched on paper and brought it to life for web, and did so within a very tight, demanding timeline to help our website launch with great success. He also made last-minute modifications (2 rounds) and is keeping in contact with us for further projects and updates to this current one.

I couldn't recommend Jonathan more highly; he has been a great design/technical asset to our very nimble organization.

Interests

Outside of software engineering, I enjoy camping and backpacking around the Bay Area as well as making annual trips to Yosemite. I also love to dive into a good fantasy novel (Rothfuss and Sanderson are my current favorites) as well as binging on a good tv show.

I've also had a passion for music at a very young age when I started teaching myself piano. After studying music through college, I now play at local venues as a side gig and am a member of the band STRATA where we have been featured on Sirius XM radio and Alt Nation 105.3.
