I'm a 23yo software developer currently living in Pittsburgh, PA. I have a BS in Computer Science from Penn State University with a minor in Information Sciences and Technology. I'm primarily a .NET programmer with experience ranging from the database to the web page. I'm also familiar with iOS programming and am open to jumping into any language or framework.


Programmer Analyst II & I at PPG Industries

June 2015 - PRESENT

Worked both in small teams and individually to design/implement .NET/SQL software solutions to solve business needs. In addition to developing new software to improve business functions, I also supported and maintained legacy applications, fixing bugs and adding features throughout. I had direct contact with customers both in external businesses and on the manufacturing plant floor. Aside from software development, I was also the system administrator for the business's Microsoft CRM system during a time when the company was beginning to adopt the system at a rapid pace. This meant meeting with users from all parts of the business to discuss and then implement projects with a wide array of business functions.
