  • 2014 - 2018University of Victoria

    Bachelor of Computer Science

    Under the recommendation and Guidance of the Head Coach of the UVIC soccer team, I transferred to the University of Victoria. Here I took my Bachelors of Computer Science with a Software Engineering Specialty and achieved a much more thorough education in the underlying theory, concepts, and science behind more complex programming. It was here that I discovered my passion for scalable application programming (web and mobile), the security behind computer and application systems, and found that I have a knack for understanding complex algorithms.

  • 2011 - 2013Grande Prairie Regional College

    Computer Systems Technology Diploma

    I attended GPRC for my first 2 years of post-secondary on a scholarship for the college soccer team. While here, I studied Computer Systems Technology, a 2 year lead-in to a Bachelors of Computer Science. This was a very hands-on experience focused more on building projects than general theory. Here I built database structures for fictional companies, created small video games, hand-coded Space Invaders from scratch in Assembly Language, built and coded an Arduino Robot to navigate obstacle courses, a lot of Java and C++ programming for data structures, and much more.

  • 2017 - 2020Shop Your Own Mortgage

    Full Stack Software Engineer

    For most of my time at Shop Your Own Mortgage, I have worked as a Full Stack Software Engineer. Here I have had the chance to dig in and get my hands dirty with all parts of our software. I have worked with our legacy PHP backend, as well as built new node-based servers for new products. As well, I led the development of V2 of our mobile application written in React Native. I have worked extensively with React/Redux as well as with react hooks.

    More recently, I have been given the opportunity to lead our cybersecurity initiative. As part of our partnership with a number of 3rd parties and our planned expansion into Europe, the need to tighten security and bring our technology up to certain compliance standards has become evident. It is my job to bring us into alignment with these, as well as hardening our security stance as a whole.
