Full Stack Software Engineer
Hey! My name is Isaac and I'm a full stack software engineer with a passion for artificial intelligence and application development.
I'm currently a third year student at George Mason University pursuing
a degree in computer science.
I aspire toward a career that will allow me to create impactful and influencial products.
When I'm not on the computer, I enjoy traveling, livestreaming, and cooking.
Web Development is almost like an art form. Instead of a paint brush, I use a mouse and keyboard
to create an impact with my designs to capture the user's attention. At one point in my life,
I was heavily passionate about music composition. I believe that has transferred over to my web design,
as it allows me to bring everything together into one concise experience.
Throughout the past 8 years, I have been teaching myself different technologies in computer science.
I have experience with several languages, from Java to R, and I have implemented a fair number of them
in both personal projects and work tasks. Currently I am pursuing blockchain technologies and
artificial intelligence research.
I thoroughly believe that half of the battle in developing a product is figuring out how the
user is going to interact with it. For each fantastic idea is stored in the back-end,
there has to be a compelling interface that will draw users in. Front-end coding is every bit as
valuable as the back-end code feeding into it, and I hope to pursue this as far as it will take me.
I've been doing web development for about 3 years now and software development for about 7 years.
I'm always eager to learn more about anything related to technology.
Telos Blockchain is a blockchain solution I am currently helping to develop.
I have been working with two other college interns since May, researching blockchain technologies,
such as Solidity and Multichain. I played an integral role in leading the team in design decisions
and I single-handedly built the entire front-end, while the rest of my team went to work on the back-end.
Although the project hasn't reached production phase yet, my team and I have pushed
the limits of blockchain innovation to create a clean and concise package for a variety of customers. Moving
foward, I will be utilising REST to streamline integration between my dashboard and their database.
This was the original layout for my website. Although there wasn't
necessarily anything wrong with it, I had a strong desire to rebuild it. In doing so, I believe
I was able to create a much more streamlined experience in version 2.0.
This website was essentially a 3 hour project designed to reevaluate my grasp on
HTML, CSS, and JS, in order to be prepared for internship applications.
This site is my current personal website. It fits very well with my personal
design aesthetic and even allows me to feature my own logo on the navigation bar. This is the first
website that I have created that I feel presents myself in a strong light.
This website was a more comprehensive display of my abilities as a web developer.
I learned how to work with bootstrap and a larger font library. However, I will continue to learn as much
as I can about developing websites and improve this as time goes on.

DrillBook is an application designed to assist band directors develop marching band sets
for their students. It has recently been completely redone to run on Github's Electron framework and is coded
in Java. This application includes a wide range of keyboard shortcuts for editing and allows users to save their
work as PDFs.
This project was my entry into developing production-grade software. Moving forward, we intend
to streamline the design of the application and move on towards marketing it to band directors across the country.

This site was designed with a colleague for George Mason University's
co-ed a capella group Mason Some Noise. It was my first time learning how to interact with
Firebase and we strongly relied on it for data storage throughout the entire site.
This website was definitely a rewarding challenge. It was my entry
to developing web pages for clients and using Firebase. I was also able to incorporate new
to design web pages for different sized devices.
Ramen Tips is an Amazon Alexa Skill that I developed over the summer. The skill
is intended to assist users with different cooking tips in the kitchen. This was a rewarding experience,
as I was able to learn the intricacies of the Amazon Developer Portal and Amazon Lambda.
This project was part of Amazon's Alexa Skill Builder's monthly challenge. When
I participated in June, I was tasked with using one of Amazon's templates to create a brand new Alexa Skill from the ground up.
