PROJECTS
DartSynth Live Site | Github
Interactive audio sequencer built using Dart, JavaScript, Tone.js, HTML, and CSS.
Accelerated development through the use of Dart’s strict type system and live reload that made bugs incredibly easy to spot in real-time.
Formulated interface between Tone.js library and Dart components through dispatching custom DOM events with Dart, and intercepting them with JavaScript, expediting application development through bypassing the pricey alternative of porting the Tone.js library to Dart.

Roastia Live Site | Github
Craft coffee shop finder constructed using JavaScript, MongoDB, Express, GraphQL, React, Apollo, and Node.js (MERN + GraphQL).
Implemented custom debounced-search React hook, resulting in a lightened server load with a more than 50% decrease in requests sent during searches.
Overhauled React form handling through the use of the Formik third-party JavaScript library, reducing the amount of broiler-plate-code required, saving the team a considerable amount of time.

IckyArt Live Site | Github
An online art encyclopedia developed using Ruby on Rails, jQuery, JavaScript, React, Redux, and PostgreSQL.
Utilized the MediaWiki third-party API to fetch real-time data from Wikipedia, ensuring up-to-date information on the live page.
Implemented a polymorphic association in order to store the links to the pictures for both the artists and artworks, yielding a significantly simplified structure of the database while simultaneously streamlining data-fetching.

PhilanthroTrees Live Site | Github
A community-based volunteer task tracker built using JavaScript, MongoDB, Express, React, Redux, and Node.js (MERN).
Formulated dynamic fetching of sprites through the use of Webpack, allowing for a variety of images to be displayed without the need to hard-code them into the React components.
Engineered intuitive UI through use of React with Redux in order to add data retrieved from AJAX requests to the local store, enabling the seamless fetching of information in real time.
