Featured Projects




A full-stack MERN app with auth. Pulls movie data from a public API. Users can create an account to login and create a list of favorite movies. Uses JWT for auth. The backend is built in Node/Express with MongoDB.

I'm including it here because it has links to all of my older blog posts and all of my smaller projects. The current site you're viewing is meant to show a nicer design and in the future I plan to add more of my older projects and blogs in addition to the featured posts currently shown.
