    This is a collection of projects I've done with Vue.js. While I can't show some of these publicly, I have permission to showcase them privately while pursuing prospective work. I can either showcase these via a screen share or provide a password so that one can take a look at their own convenience.

  • Make a đťodule

    This is a personal project I'm working on in my spare time.
