I'm looking to move into a web development role in the JavaScript ecosystem. Over the last year, I've built this portfolio and the projects within it in my free time.

Compendia website showing the gorgeous UI of a comic book collecting website

Compendia

Next.js / React / Node.js / Tailwind CSS / React-Query / Magic Link Auth / PostgreSQL / AWS S3

Compendia is a comic book collecting web app that makes it easy to explore weekly comic book releases, track a pull list of comics to pick up, and organize a comic book collection.

This is a full-stack web app with a Next.js/React front-end, and a Node.js serverless functions back-end that retrieves data from a PostgreSQL database. As part of this project, I also wrote a web scraper in Node.js that retrieves new comic releases each week, hosts the cover images on AWS S3, and commits the releases to the PostgreSQL database.

indieTube React App Screenshots

indieTube

React / Styled-Components / React-Spring / YouTube Data API / Sketch

indieTube is a YouTube filter web app that queries YouTube's search results via the YouTube Data API and filters out any results that are not by independent content creators.

This is a client-side React wep app styled using Styled Components / CSS that searches YouTube via the YouTube Data API v3 and filters out any results from channels that have been flagged by users as not "indie". I used React-Spring for animations, and built my own custom infinite scroll search functionality.

The sleek and simple company site for Windham County Tees

Windham County Tees

HTML5 / CSS3 / Design / Netlify Forms / Copywriting

Windham County Tees is a small business in Connecticut that needed a web presence. I designed this site using Sketch, wrote all of the copy, and built it to be mobile-first and responsive. I also built a "Request a Quote" form that makes it easy to gather leads.
