Hi, I'm Simon.

For the TLDR,
download my resume.

I'm a software engineer specializing in React, Redux, JavaScript, and Ruby on Rails. I graduated from Vanderbilt University with a B.S. in Human & Organizational Development.

I have a passion for problem-solving, pizza, and playing games. On the problem-solving front, I've channeled my software development energy into a Sudoku-based social networking application. As for pizza, I actually don't discriminate- I love all foods equally. Check out my Yelp clone with full search functionality, Google Maps API integration, and AWS hosting for all those tasty food images. When it comes to playing games, my all-time favorite game (show) is Jeopardy! I religiously watch it every day, and you can have a go playing my Jeopardy! spin-off game, JSpardy.

What do I do when I'm not in front of the computer? I enjoy being outdoors, whether that be on a walk around the neighborhood or a trip to the mountains. It's a personal goal of mine to visit all national parks in the country, and I most recently was able to check Mt. Rainier and Zion off of the list.

As a full stack software developer, I have enjoyed using Ruby, JavaScript, React/Redux, Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, CSS, HTML, Node, PostreSQL, MongoDB, and more in my projects. I am continuously learning new things. Reach out to talk software development, food, hiking, or Jeopardy game theory.
