Experience

  • Doorways

    This React Native app uses augmented reality (AR) to give a virtual tour of rental or sale properties. Real-estate agents could hop onto the customer dashboard and upload pictures or videos of their listing. The Doorways company professionals then convert those to an AR experience shown on a React Native mobile app. One could even open or close doors to enter different rooms and, from the comfort of their place, see the whole listing.

  • Honduship Express
    https://honduship.com

    Honduship is a New York-based startup that services customers in Honduras by shipping big brand products from the US to South America. I was the sole developer on their React-based front-end website. I developed a huge administrator panel with an ERP system from scratch and integrated it with Vend POS. I also created a mobile application to show users the status and current location of their packages during delivery. The QR code integration automatically marked packages as delivered when delivery personnel scanned the code and uploaded delivery pictures.

    The app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.

  • Eterna Day Spa
    https://eternadayspa.com/

    I worked as a full-stack developer for a beauty salon chain that wanted to bring its business online and serve more customers digitally. I developed its front-end website in React, including online reservations, user accounts, user profiles, spa information like technicians' profiles, services, and more. Also, I developed an administrator portal in React and Node.js. It enabled spa managers and technicians to look up customer reservations and check in customers. Administrators could use it to see revenue, add or delete employees or customers, and see inquiries. The administrator panel also controlled the information on front-end websites like text and images.
