Skills / Technologies


Bestow Life Insurance Platform

The future of life insurance
What I learned: Working at Bestow has raised my tech skills by so many levels. I've had the opportunity to think high-level and build software that will scale for years to come, all while diving into the intricacies of JS, TS, React, and the fundamentals of the web deeper than I had ever dreamed.
Technologies:Remix, TypeScript


Custom-tailored for managing my family's finances. You know, accounting stuff.
What I learned: I've gone through multiple iterations of this project, learning more and more as I go. It started in Python with Google Sheets as the backend and has now evolved into a single-page Next app powered by automated email scraping and categorization.
Technologies:Next.js, MySQL, Styled Components

Course Website

Custom-made platform for my past students. Included an appointment scheduler, anonymous messaging, automated homework grading, and grade reports.
What I learned: This was my first-ever playground for learning real web development. I had a deadline and real users to build new features for. It started out using the Pug templating language, which I eventually re-vamped into React as I was preparing for my first job at Hy-Vee.
Technologies:React, Express, Bootstrap
