Where ya been living?

I was born on an island called Providenciales, AKA Provo, in Turks & Caicos Islands. I moved to Quebec, Canada around the age of 9, learned French and at 17 I was living on my own in Montreal working and finishing my education. I lived there until my mid 20s before moving back to the islands where I had been living up until 2020 when I moved to Texas.

So ya like to code?

I love to build things. I started off building with legos as a child and that evolved into building with code starting around 12.

As a teenager, I was running an online text based multiplayer game with an average of 15-30 daily users. It was coded in Visual Basics 6 and that is when I fell in love with the endless possibilities coding offers.

Still coding with VB6?

I specialize in Javascript and have created multiple projects using the MERN (MongoDB, Express, React, Node) stack with GraphQL.

I would consider myself more of a backend dev but I have created multiple frontends using React and React Native. I love using Docker and Kubernetes with prometheus, loki, grafana, cert-manager, ingress-nginx and so much more. I love to automate things.

A recent project I'm working on has me using multiple socket.io servers and I'm using redis Pub/Sub so the message is broadcasted to every server. I really enjoy building with kubernetes in mind.
