Senior Software Engineer with more than 10 years of experience architecting, developing, maintaining and supporting many systems.

During my off time I like to work on side web and mobile projects to continue to learn what is new or shiny in the world of technology. Because of this I have created many fun side applications.

The benefit of this is that you can access it from anywhere, and it no longer requires any app store. The application is now platform agnostic, so that means that is works on iOS, Android, Windows, Mac and Linux.


Scienteer is designed to guide students, teachers and fair directors through the required steps to comply with the Intel ISEF competitions. Built from the ground up using PHP, Laravel, Bootstrap and MySQL.
