Hello I am Josh, I am a full stack developer specializing in developing for Web and Mobile in React, React Native, Nodejs, and Django. I have a degree from Purdue University in Computer Engineering. I currently work at Amazon in the Adverting sales performance department as a Frontend Engineer..


I am quiet and shy at first (please talk me first if you see me out and about) but I do not take my self too seriously. Love keeping things light hearted and always trying to make everyone laugh. Would be a good addition to your team to keep the energy high and excited.


I am very curious, and I am always learning or building something. Most of the time to just make my friends and I laugh or develop a new skill like learning CAD or laser cutting.


Honestly, a I take a little bit longer to pick up things the other people because I have a learning disability but I work very hard at it and found tricks around it. Such as using the accessibility tools on my macbook and phone. Additionally, once I start picking up on the new concept I can reach a very deep level of mastery and become a go to person.


In my free-time, I like doing things that continue to work my brain or bring me some kind of rush.

The hobbies that “continue to work my brain”:

  • Photography
    • Get to think about what makes a good photo, and how to compose a good shot
    • Great way to enjoy a walk and think about the city I live in a different way
    • Brings me closer to my friends when I take photos of them and meet new people as well.
    • Check out myPhotography instagram account
  • Chess
    • Think about things at a higher level then I normally do
    • Helpful to think in a more strategic way, in the sense I have to plan out my moves and think four moves ahead of my current move and think about the counter moves as well to each move.
    • A really great way to meet brilliant people.
    • Play me on Chess.com
  • Hobbyist Electronics
    • I keep a membership to MHub, which is the makerspace I go to. You can find me being an NPC there when I am not working. it has been really helpful for to be there for networking, developing my hardware skills, and just generally building things.
    • Electronics projects are more tangible than the software project I deal with all day.
    • I like making things go “blinkly, blinky” or “Clickly, Clicky”
    • Need to utilize this expensive degree I got from Purdue University somehow, ha.

The hobbies that bring me a “rush”:

  • Music
    • Love going to concerts
    • Discussing music and find new artist
    • Really into House, Techno, and Rap music.
    • Meme Rap, is real rap and its good, Okay!

  • Cycling
    • Feels good to go really fast, shoot down alleyways and jump through traffic
    • Good way to get my body moving and explore the city.
  • Things with Motors
    • As a former Florida man, I lived in Florida until high school. I am very use to random bolted together vehicles flying down my street very fast. Sometimes, it was me on weed eater bike cycle.
    • Really into Cars. I dream of the day I can (safely) afford a Porsche 911 turbo S GTS 3.


    • Getting a Motorcycle this summer because the BMW isn’t really doing it for me like the Miata was.
