About Me

I am a NodeJS developer with 11 years of coding experience.


I started in 2009 with HTML and CSS, making simple static web pages and expanding my knowledge over time. Around 2010/2011, I started to learn how to use JavaScript to create dynamic web apps. During this time I also learned a version of BASIC so I could program games for my 3DS, using a DSi app called Petit Computer. In 2015 I found NodeJS, and started using it to create some basic bots for various chat platforms.


My goal with coding is to help others. I enjoy being able to create something that other people can use to make their lives easier. I take criticism well, and use suggestions to improve the product. The wants and/or needs of the userbase are always my priority, because without a supportive userbase, the product has no real purpose.


Over the last few years, my knowledge and experience with NodeJS have expanded, as has my main project, which currently has nearly one million users. I am fluent in using JavaScript and JSON within the Node environment, as well as all the features of ES6. I also have a solid understanding of HTML and CSS, and am able to work with web apps or other browser-based environments.

Space Shooter

About: This is a retro style space shooter I made using Petit Computer on my 3DS. The code is a disaster and full of redundancy and bad practices, but this was my first big project, as well as my first actually enjoyable game.

Language: SmileBASIC

Party Lighting

About: This is a simple web app to emulate the various features of a programmable LED strip, because I wanted to have mood lighting but couldn't afford an LED strip. Some of the settings are good for partying, so that's where it got its name.

Languages: HTML, CSS, JavaScript

Indent Remover

About: This is a basic web app designed to remove excess whitespace from the input text. I created this in order to make it easier to share code on Discord, as they impose a maximum of 2000 characters per message, and whitespace can easily take up 100+ characters, depending on the snippet you're sharing.

Languages: HTML, JavaScript
