I am 25 with 12 years of programming experience.
I continue to grow my skillset with each problem I tackle.
I got started when I built and sold iOS games on the Apple App Store.
I am now aspiring to be a Machine Learning Engineer.
- Research & Development Computer Scientist - Sandia National Laboratories (June 2020 - present)
- Graduate Research Assistant - Auburn University (May 2018 - May 2020)
Research into Exploratory Modeling using NetLogo, Scala and Python for sustainable Wargaming logistics for the US Air Force and research on Coherent Agent simulations where I designed and implemented an API for Agents to interact on contexts.
- Graduate Teaching Assistant - Auburn University (May 2019 - August 2019)
Teaching Assistant for an Introduction to Algorithms class of 36 students. My responsibilities included grading, proctoring, holding office hours and study sessions.
- Software Engineer - WonUpIt (January 2015 - August 2017)
At WonUpIt I gained valuable experience with data-driven applications. My responsibilities included overseeing app architecture, improving the User Interface and maintaining legacy code. In addition, I managed a team of developers to release more than 10 versions of the WonUpIt app.
- Technician - Everwave Technologies (May 2016 - August 2016)
As a Technician I received hands on experience with the first three layers of Internet Protocol. I learned ISP technologies such as Packet Switching, installation of T1 lines and Y-Max high power radio beaming to bring fast and reliable internet access to the Rocky Mountains.
- iOS Developer & Tutor - Brodderick.com (2010 - 2018)
I began as a self-taught programmer working on individual projects. I released several apps to the Apple App Store and eventually began contract work. The apps I created on my own include two games and an app that makes it easy to track how much you are spending on gasoline. In addition, I tutored iOS development to young students who were eager to create.
- Strategy Learning System - (2019 - 2020) (GitHub) (PowerPoint)
An architecture developed in cooperation with a U.S. Air Force contract for wargaming policy analysis. The system uses a model ensemble method coupled with rule-based machine learning to discover how to yield desirable results from a wargaming simulation.
- Hypertune - (2019) (GitHub)
Hyperparameter tuning using Particle Swarm Optimization and parallel computation which outperforms current approaches.
- Cassowary (collaboration) - (2020 - Present) (GitHub) (homepage)
Took over maintaining the cassowary constraint satisfaction repository.
- XCSR - (2019) (GitHub)
A rule-based classifier from Wilson’s accuracy-based Learning Classifier System. Expands the traditional approach to include multiclass and real-values.
- XCS - (2019) (GitHub)
A rule-based classifier from Wilson’s accuracy-based Learning Classifier System.
- Shut The Box Reinforcement Learning Agent - (2019) (GitHub)
A Q-Learning agent to play the game of Shut the Box.
