About

I am a student and Full Stack Web Developer who attends San Diego State University. I primarily work with Linux, Tomcat, MySql,  and Java as my stack, with an HTML/CSS JS front-end. While most of the work that I currently do is Full Stack, I prefer working on back end development.

Education

I am attending San Diego State University, majoring in Computer Science, and pursuing the Honors minor in Interdisciplinary Studies. While at San Diego State University, I have been named to the College of Sciences Dean’s List every semester. I am also a member of the Weber Honors College, which allows me to work with students in other disciplines on a wide array of projects outside of my major.

I have also studied abroad, at the University of Jyväskylä; in Jyväskylä, Finland. While there, I studied Human Sciences, with students from over 20 countries. While my studies there were not strictly major related, they still contributed to my diverse and wholesome education that I have received at both San Diego State University and the University of Jyväskylä.

Experience

I have been working with embedded devices, including platforms like the RaspberryPi and Arduino, since 2007. More recently, I have been developing Web Applications utilizing the Jersey Framework (Java) and JaxRS. I also have experience with Python for scripting, automation, and pulling data from APIs. I have also installed and managed several DevOps tools, like TeamCity and YouTrack.

I have also provisioned and maintained several Linux servers, whose stability and uptime were essential to ensure smooth business operations.

  • Backing Up with Amazon Glacier

    Amazon Glacier is a long-term, low-cost data archival and backup service offered by AWS. It is surprisingly cheap at only $0.0041 per GB per month, it has some caveats though. Mainly, retrievals can take upto 5 hours, and archives must be stored for a minimum of 3 months […]
