My journey in software engineering and coding commenced post-high school, initially with aspirations to become an Aeronautical Engineer. However, over time, my professional passion pivoted towards Software Engineering as I delved into the intricacies of computer systems. The curiosity of understanding the inner workings of computers fueled my growing interest in the field.
Before transitioning to mobile development, however, I worked as a Java Developer. In 2014, I successfully developed my first Android application, ‘Simple Maths,’ utilizing Java. This application got over 1000+ downloads after launch and a 4.5 rating, with parents praising the app; the app had no great design, which was mind-blowing to me. This positive response served as a significant motivator, propelling me further into the realm of mobile development.
As my passion for building Android applications grew, I decided to apply for the Grow With Google Scholarship — and I won! Completing the advanced Android development nanodegree program at Udacity was a game-changer for me. It significantly contributed to the development of my second application, Budgeting Buddy, which has now amassed over 10,000 downloads. This free mobile app serves as a user-friendly tool for effective money management and budget creation.
I obtained my education from the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering at Auburn University (War Eagle). Currently, I work as the Chief Technology Officer at Jibu Labs, where am actively involved in building our flagship product.
As an award-winning technology expert, my mastery of the craft is highlighted by innovative approaches and a commitment to excellence. Recognition through prestigious awards showcases my ability to redefine user experiences with cutting-edge applications, establishing my expertise in the dynamic field of software engineering.
