About Me

Picture of Tommy

Full-Stack Software Engineer leveraging a background in Physics and Astronomy to help solve the most complicated problems with elegant and intuitive software. Earned a certificate in Full Stack Development from the University of Texas at Austin, where I honed my skills in JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. Recently built the login and authentication of a MERN stack application that serves as a peer-to-peer marketplace for the rental of outdoor gear with industry-standard design and packages. As part of this three man team, I also helped design and build our application’s Front-End with React. With a passion for learning and growth, I bring an open mind and a hard working attitude to any team that I am a part of.

I am from a small town in south Texas of about 7,000 people called Gonzales, but after 10 years spent in Austin, TX, and I now call myself a legitimate Austinite. I attended The University of Texas at Austin and graduated with bachelor's degrees in Astronomy and Physics. I am an avid software engineer, adventurer, photographer, cyclist, trumpet player, UT football fanatic, and corgi lover.
