Bachelors of Science - Computer Science

CSU Computer Science coursework focuses heavily on Java and C++ for upper-division classes, as well as some Python for algorithm modeling. Database classes were electives taken so I could achieve necessary knowledge in SQL.



Object-oriented programming in Java, development testing with JUnit Test Framework for high coverage, and Spring/SpringBoot frameworks.


Experience with MySQL alongside of PHP for web application development, as well as PostgreSQL work at HPE.


Object-oriented PHP development using MVC framework similar to CakePHP.  Recent experience with Laravel framework.


Worked in a Javascript front-end environment on HPE OneView, and have used React throughout personal web projects.

School Projects

Networks & The Internet

  • DNS Resolver - C++, sending DNS requests for given hostnames to DNS servers via UDP.  All requests were iterated through manually (from root) from DNS Answer sections, and sent new queries to learned servers.  All packets were manually structured and required understanding of RFC 1035 regarding DNS query formatting.  Similar to 'dig'.
  • Anonymous GET - C++, anonymous retrieval of data at a given URL through a chain of servers.  Request for GET is sent through n-servers until querying the web server itself, then the file is transmitted back through the chain to the original requester without making file copies along the way.
  • Client/Server Chat - C++, initial understanding of TCP connections between a server and client with data passing through the network via network data formats.

Distributed Systems

  • Routing Packets Within a Structured Peer-to-Peer Network Overlay - Java, implement routing schemes from a constructed logical overlay of a distributed set of nodes.  A single registry keeps track of all nodes and provides routing tables for messaging nodes.  Tested for millions of packets sent from each node with successful receiving on other nodes.

Big Data

  • Creating N-gram Profile for a Corpus - Java, extracting unigrams and bigrams of words in a large dataset of e-books, computing frequency of each and number of volumes the n-grams are contained in.  Output is then sorted in alphabetical order and by year of publishing.  Implemented using Hadoop, MapReduce (Java), and YARN resource management.
