Auverity App

Auverity is an application that helps the world return to normal. Using Stripe verification, Vercel, Next.js, and TypeScript, I created a platform for users to upload their vaccination cards to a secure location. Organizations can be onboarded to create groups and events, invite users to the platform, and track the progress of attendees being vaccinated. In the future, we plan on developing the platform more to help save people's lives in accidents, help HR with onboarding, and assist organizations to smoothly host events without worrying about COVID-19.

CAD Automation in the Solar Industry

An app based on React, Express, and PostgreSQL. I was the team lead and senior engineer on this project, working with three other developers and the CAD department. We created a database structure to store AHJ information and automate calculations for solar projects within their AHJ requirements. Tasks were tracked through Jira. With the MVP, we reduced the time for the average CAD job from two hours to 15 minutes.

Billing Platform

A Next.js and TypeScript-based application I created for GGMS to track their billings on Stripe. Using Stripe APIs, I can sort billings by product, company, and top product within the company. Utilizing Vercel and Next.js, I created the project with no monthly fees for the client.
