Using React, React Native, Reactstrap, HTML, and CSS I helped build: an updated version of an existing service
Using Linode, Express, MySQL, React, Typescript, Team City, Kanboard, Git, GitHub, JS, HTML, and CSS I built: Swarm Report -- A service for apiaries and bee associations to connect their members to a system where people can report swarms that will then notifiy members based on a queue system
Using Express, Microsoft SQL, React, Typescript, Azure, Bamboo, Git, GitHub, JS, HTML, and CSS I built: interface for applications platform, application template, photo management, and various fixres and updates to legacy code
Using PHP, MySQL, Vue, D3, JQuery, Node, Git, BitBucket, Kanboard, JS, HTML, and CSS I built: timecard system, scheduling system, graphical interface for updating equipment status, and visualizing analytics, and various fixes and updates to legacy code
I was birthed into existence in the extremely humid (extremely cold in the winter) town of Fargo, ND
I moved to St. Paul, MN to pursue an education in programming but ended up attending a music school
Having survived the "Polar Vortex", I couldn't stand another winter, so I headed west and landed in Portland, OR
The instable life of a starving artist was taking it's toll on me, so I started focusing on my first passion: programming
I attended Alchemy Code Lab and completed their courses: Bootcamp I and Bootcamp II
I landed my first job as a professional developer at a construction company, where I built applications to help organize the company's assets, resources, and finances
I was brought on by the recommendation of 2 former classmates from Alchemy Code Lab to work with a thriving company in a niche market that delivers services that help plant nursuries in almost every facet; from tracking plant growth stages to point-of-sale interface, analytics, and inventory management
After being furloughed, I teamed up with another furloughed coworker (and former classmate at Alchemy Code Lab) to rebuild an enterprise service we built for Portland Urban Beekeepers back in 2017
After unemployment ran out, a former coworker reached out to me and notified me that his current workplace was looking for developers, so I applied, interviewed, and got the job! Serendipitious! I currently work here.
"I’ve known Erik for about 15 years and we’ve worked together on multiple projects. He's self motivated and a great independent worker but also works well with groups and doesn't hesitate to ask for help when he needs it. He's great at designing and building applications from the ground up but has no problem navigating preexisting code bases."
"Erik’s attention to detail and enthusiasm for modern coding practices results in quality software applications. He’s great at collaborating, listens well to criticism, gives great advice, and overall a great team player. With Erik on the team you can be sure that, not only will the work get done, the team will have fun doing it."
