SteakCoins

A simple Twitter bot to give away crypto tokens. This was a weekend project where I developed a Node.js service to listen to the Twitter API for interactions with different accounts or hashtags. Once an event is triggered, the author of the tweet would be given an amount of tokens. If the author did not have a Hedera wallet associated with their Twitter login, a wallet would be created for them. I created a basic UI in React to allow Twitter users to access their crypto wallets using their Twitter credentials.

Business to Bussiness eCommerce Web App

A web-based app for the employee benefits market. I was a front-end developer who helped implement the component design library. I specialized in interactive components, including calendar and date-time picker inputs.

Vehicle Vitals API

https://www.vehiclevitals.com
A mobile application to help users more easily manage their car-related needs. I revamped the back end by migrating to REST microservices using NestJS and automated the deployment and database migrations. Also, I added custom analytics tools and reporting through the Metabase.
