About me

Hello and welcome to my corner of the internet. I'm Greg, a recent computer science graduate working as a software engineer. I enjoy building web-based applications focusing on both frontend and backend environments, particularly in the .NET ecosystem. I'm passionate about improving technology and applying my logical nature to the field of computer science. I believe the technology we can create has the ability to improve our lives and those around us, and having a role in that is my career goal. I spend my free time tinkering with the latest JavaScript framework, living on coffee, and playing guitar for my two cats.

COVID19 Near Me

COVID19 Near Me

ReactJSExpressJSJavaScript ES6BulmaHTMLCSSHeroku

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, I found myself constantly just trying to get simple statistics about number of cases and deaths in my area and across the world. This app aims to put all of that data in one place, as simply as possible. It became a great way to continue practicing my React skills while also learning NodeJS, specifically ExpressJS. This is one of my first full stack JavaScript web applications. It also uses the Bulma CSS framework (no JavaScript included) for styling. It also uses GitHub Pages for hosting the front end and Heroku for the backend.
