Skills & Training

Software Development

With a focus more on backend, I routinely use languages such as PHP and C#. However I am currently taking a course in C++.

While I've focused on backend, I utilize frontend frameworks such as VueJS in my projects.

System Administration

Years of experience working with Windows to switching it up in a Mac only office has given me valuable experience across two different methodologies of system administration!

Cloud

Building my own projects has put me on the front lines of learning to work with the cloud, from game servers to architecting my own workflows for content creation. I've got experience across a vast array of technologies.

Stream Updater

StreamUpdater was a platform designed to help streamers manage their twitch.tv streams automatically.

StreamUpdater was the first platform to change stream title and games automatically for the streamer to ensure everything is up-to-date.

While it is still online, it is not updated and functionality has been merged into StreamBit.tv

StreamBit

StreamBit is a VOD and Streaming platform designed to compete with some of the biggest sites in the gaming scene

This was also one of the first companies I setup to learn more about business and terminology.

It has undergone extensive development since 2017 and has been the project I always turn to for learning laravel upgrades and utilizing new frontends. It is a true test bed, hence why it has a strong feature set.

MarioShare

This was a project for the Super Mario Maker video game that came out for the Nintendo Switch

This project gathered over 400 users and 1,000 shares levels being posted on it before being taken down as nintendo had developed their own service thus making my one irrelevant

CRM Project

CRM Project

This is a simple leads management system

I created this as a base for learning VueJS + InertiaJS with a Laravel (PHP) Backend. Extremely impressed with the responsive nature I ended up opening it up for anyone that wants to use it as a simple leads platform.

It was originally created to learn more about the leads process and act as a competitor to those extremely bloated platforms.

It is bespoke, so if you are interested drop me a line and I'll set you up with an install.

Social Media Project

Social Media Project

An answer to social media corporations effectively flailing about.

I created this in response to Reddit effectively turning on API developers resulting in the closure of many popular apps.

A fully open social media platform that focuses on serving text, not overbloated video / picture / whatever else services.

As with all of my projects, it doesn't seem to profit from ads, rather from crowdfunding.

Still thinking of a name....
