I mainly do front-end web development.
I've loved technology since my early childhood, whether it be a new console with its all-new design or a great piece of software.
Yes. I love yerba mate. I drink it every day. Ask me about my favorite kind!
A stunning e-commerce site for an apparel business built with Hugo and Snipcart’s fantastic developer-first tools, the sykstem delivers on it’s speed and quality.
Yes…this is JATL (just another todo list). The difference here is that I focus on it’s simplicity while trying to keep it as minimal as possible.
This public journal — as the name describes — is for the public. Anyone can hop on without having to login and create and comment on entries anonymously. Entries are discarded after a short period of time, making this journal ephemeral in nature.
And last but not least, this very website!
My site used to be built on a theme by HTML5UP called “Hugo Story”, but in order to fit in my new portfolio, I decided I would update it to match my true passion. There is now less importance to my face and more importance to the work accomplished.
So there I was in theater school at UCLA, thinking about how to go about my life again…
I started to realize my journey largely at the start of 2021, during a business marketing class. We were tasked with creating a website in order to market ourselves in the industry. It was then where I decided to do things a little differently; instead of using a platform like Wordpress or Wix, I decided to build one from scratch. It brought on new ways of thinking and of doing things, harnessing that ability to embrace efficiency and the use of shortcuts.
After settling on learning the Hugo static site generator, I ran with it to start my newfound career. I instantly fell in love with how fast it builds my code; the instant reloads were indeed a plus too. The feeling I get building my own site through code is unlike anything I have felt, even with acting. I wake up every day wanting to get my hands on the keyboard to create something new or to update existing code. I cannot wait to contribute to the open community.
