Work Experience


Promediacorp

Full Stack Developer (May 2016 - Present)

Technology Used: Python Flask Jinja2 HTML/CSS Javascript MongoDB AngularJS AWS Git Google Tag Manager Google Analytics/Adsense


I am currently working at Promediacorp working on various projects that involve SEO optimization, front-end development, and backend development in Python and Flask. Most days I would work on Up Hail, a site built to to compare the various ridesharing and taxi services available across the US and other countries. I created new features like Up Hail Discover which has been featured on Gizmodo and other technology sites. In addition to working on Up Hail I also performed client work, which ranged from SEO optimization to creating full scale webapps according to client specifications such as Autorentals.com.


Morgan Stanley

Summer IT Analyst (June 2014 - August 2015)

Technology Used: Python Flask Jinja2 HTML/CSS Javascript SQL Databases Git Autosys Perl CGI Bash


During the end of my junior year of highschool I started working at Morgan Stanley in the Enterprise Infrastructure department. The main focus of my job was to perform database hygiene of the company's automated job control system called Autosys. This entailed creating Python scripts to read through the millions of automated jobs in these databases and ensure they all had the proper metadata. When a job lacked the proper metadata, my scripts would then generate automated emails with reports and send them to the job owners or team leaders. In addition, I helped to maintain the web application that allowed creation of new automated jobs.

hackBCA

hackBCA Web Developer (November 2014 - March 2015)

Technology Used: Python Flask Jinja2 HTML/CSS Javascript MongoDB Git Heroku Dropbox API


During the first hackBCA, I developed a registration system in order for us to keep track of those who were going to attend the hackathon. My registration system collected basic information and waivers for those who were underage. During the day of the event my system was used to monitor attendance, ensure everyone had the proper waivers, and create demographics.


Projects

ClassMatch

Technology Used: Python Flask Jinja2 HTML/CSS Javascript MongoDB Git Heroku

Class-Match is a web app in which students can find out who is in their classes before school starts based on the preliminary schedules they receive. My friend Jared Zoneraich and I created the website to so that it would be easier for people to find out who else are in their classes without having to go through a hassle.



NHS Tutor

Technology Used: Python Flask Jinja2 HTML/CSS Javascript MongoDB Git Heroku

NHS Tutor is a web app that allows students to find tutoring sessions for areas in which they are struggling. I created the website as a way to make it easier for students to find National Honor Society members that can tutor them in specific subjects.



hackBCA Registration

Technology Used: Python Flask Jinja2 HTML/CSS Javascript MongoDB Git Heroku Dropbox API

hackBCA Registration is a web app that asks hackBCA registrants to fill out information about themselves and upload signed waivers. We were later able to use the data we collected to plan the event by accounting for everyones' preferences.


Hearts

Technology Used: Python Flask Jinja2 HTML/CSS Javascript MongoDB Git Heroku Facebook API

Hearts is a web app that was made during the PennApps Spring 2014 to analyze users Facebook conversation and generate statistics based on them. It uses the Facebook Graph API to determine stats such as average words per messages and percent of messages sent.



Choral Reef

Choral Reef is a website that was made for the FBLA E-Business competition. The prompt was to create a website for a fictitious band with the ability to purchase fictitious tickets. Choral Reef won 2nd place at the New Jersey FBLA State Leadership Conference.



Frames

Technology Used: Python Google App Engine Jinja2 HTML/CSS Javascript Android SDK

Frames is a picture sharing social network app for Android that my team made at hackRU. The idea behind Frames was to be able to anonymously upload pictures with the user's current location and then create trending places. When the app is opened it presents the user with a feed of pictures from their current location.
