Hi, my name is Christian. I am a software developer. I have experience in front-end and back-end development. In addition to software development, I also have a band that writes, records, and gigs regularly. We even wrote an album. Check my portfolio for all the projects I have worked on.
My journey with front and backend web development began in middle school. My dad had introduced me to the basic concepts of programming, and I soon realized that this was something I enjoyed. I could program Lego Mindstorms, like Frankenstein bringing his creature to life. After awhile, I started to fool around with browser extensions, and this was the first time I realized I could build something useful! By Eighth grade, I had learned to develop extensions that worked well. Flatcal, the chrome extension I created in the fall of my freshman year, quickly grew to over 2000 users. This hobby I once considered a pastime started to become my dream of the future.
I spend the next couple years developing my front-end skills. Durning the summer of 2015, I took a two-week pre-college course at the Flatiron School in Manhattan, NY. This was the first time I dove head first into backend development and is by far the most I have learned in two weeks time. Since then, I have built a few Sinatra Web Applications - the biggest being this portfolio. Evey project I create is a learning experience and better than the last.
In addition to web development, I love music. I love Playing Ed Sheeran on my acoustic guitar, experimenting with a BOSS loop pedal, or banging out some Blink 182 on my Marshall Code Amp. This helps me channel my creative side. For me, the process of building something is just as rewarding as the payoff - whether it is creating a new song or developing a new part of a website, it gives me a sense of accomplishment.
