Quick Glance

"Life isn't hard; it's just complicated."

~ Les Brown

Nothing makes me more happy than when an idea finds its way to the surface after brushing up against all the fuzzy areas of your brain. I am goal-driven and I love creative problem solving.

Experience

FreeCodeCamp -- Work Well in Teams

FreeCodeCamp is an online community of web developers who train and assist one another in the pursuit of their practice. You can find my profile here: https://www.freecodecamp.org/ki4jgt

Here are some of the projects I've completed:

Hobby Projects and Experience -- Work Well Alone

(Click the blue links to see the actual sites. Click the images to see what they look like.)

This Page: This entire page was designed by me. It is completely mobile and print responsive (the site is mobile-responsive and printer-friendly).

Node-Webkit: Media Player using YouTube Player API (Click the + button to add videos to the playlist) -- uses JS, CSS, and HTML5. Initially planned for NWJS on the desktop but YouTube doesn't allow music playing from desktop. So I added a webview frame into my app and displayed the online version in the application.

Transkripshun: Audio Transcription Software: Transcription software comparable to ExpressScribe -- Created with Python3, OpenGL, and XLib -- uses global macros to allow pausing and playing audio from anywhere on desktop.

Pretty in Pink: Simplistic HTML page -- Demonstrates use of CSS and HTML.

Cityline: Stylish Consumer Reader -- HTML and CSS.

Mercy Web Browser: Web browser sporting P2P protocols and academic focus -- written in Python3 and Gtk.

3D Graphic Design & Photography: Link to my DeviantArt profile.

Sales & Marketing: Worked in family-owned herbal business for 5+ years. Held down my own door-to-door sales gig. I also served as a CSR at Comcast through Arise.

Computers & IT: My skillset with electronics is limitless. I love breaking the operation of things down to their core, merely for the purpose of understanding them. My experiences include: programming, servers, networking, trouble-shooting, etc.

Screensaver: Got bored one day. . . Wanted something new on my computer. . . So I decided to write a screensaver.

Quick Study: I currently speak 3 languages: English, German, and Esperanto; I have dabbled in many more. I’m teaching myself stenography. I'm certified by the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the United States.

Patient and Detail Oriented: Since middleschool, I’ve been caring for my elderly grandparents. This included cleaning up after and preparing meals for them (24/7 job).

SIMP Media Player: This was another project I built in complete and utter boredom. It's a media player for my desktop and written in Python3 and OpenGL.

SIMP

Medical: I frequently had to care for my grandparents medically. I also hope to pursue a degree in biological anthropology.

Icecast: I've setup and run my own Icecast server to hear music throughout my home -- little piece of advice, DON'T! There's a horrible lag.

Steno-Writer: Transcription software for stenographers, written in Python and OpenGL.

Caddy: Having set my own blog up, I needed to play with Caddy for a bit. It's an awesome little server.

Blue Skies: This is a weather blog I did.

Minetest Game Server: I hosted a minetest game server for about a year.



Certifications

Freelancer.com: Perfect score in (US) English and punctuation.

Testing: I received the highest award possible on all my school’s state-mandated testing (Math, Science, Reading Comprehension, and History) my junior year of highschool. My school paid me $100 for that.

Amateur Radio License: Issued by FCC in 2005 (Obtained during highschool)

ICS-100: Issued by FEMA in 2007 (Obtained during highschool)
