About Me

I am a software developer that lives in Gastonia, NC (near Charlotte, NC). My passion is in all kinds of computer programming, such as web development, scripting, desktop/server applications, and even mobile applications. I'm also an Android enthusiast and avid golfer.

I started web development when I was still in high school because I originally wanted to start making a hobby website with some friends. That eventually led to my realization for my love to code. I spent several years learning the basics and playing around with some server sides languages such as PHP. By the end of college, I had built two different hobby websites for fun. It has been several years now, but I am skilled in several different languages and still learning more every day!

My Works

Here is a collection of some of my work.

Smith Wedding

Jacob and Amandas Wedding

Jacob and Amanda are dear friends of mine. I had been looking for a new personal project to do in my spare time and this was perfect. Jacob and I have been friends for over 10 years and it seemed right for me to create his engagement/wedding page. So I did.

This project incorporates several different frameworks. Including but not limited to JQuery, Bootstrap, Font-Awesome, and FlexSlider

HD Contacts

Contact Picture Manager

In the spring of 2012, I had to have some surgery done that resulted me to remain in a bed for several weeks. So in the meantime, I began to learn to write android applications. There was a particular bug/issue in the Android operating system that was bugging me and Google didn’t have an ETA on when a fix would arrive. So I began to write a work-around for that bug as my application. Thus, HD Contacts was made.

The application basically just takes one of your contacts that you want to apply a picture to and opens it up in an Activity where you will select an image for them and then crop it to the appropriate size that you want for their contact picture. It then saves the data into files on the SD Card (for portability) and then after you done, you have a collection of these images and who they belong to. It is mostly useful for people who root their phones and flash several ROMs often.

Like many projects though, they have to come to an end. Eventually google fixed the bug that bothered me and I didn’t have time to continue maintaining the code and working a full-time job. So I discontinued the project.
