1. About Me

Hello! I'm Greg, a passionate Full Stack Software Engineer who embarked on this journey back in 2016. My adventure began while completing my Computer Science & Business Administration Double Degree at Wilfrid Laurier University, where I discovered my love for building full stack solutions for the web and beyond.

My first project, Collective Reports, marked my entry into the domain of full stack development while I was still in 2nd year of university. Tasked with developing a comprehensive application for dental practices, this project was a gauntlet of rapid learning and invaluable mistakes. It was here I gained a profound understanding of the intricacies involved in building applications for the web.

Transitioning from my early experience into full time work, I found my path leading to the exciting and fast moving startup culture at a company now named Flowpoint Technologies. I spent 4 great years evolving a SaaS product from its infancy, working hard on the evolving codebase as the team grew around it. I had the unique opportunity to hone my skills not just technically, but strategically and operationally.

When I'm not working on my next side project, I like to spend my time outside doing activities such as rock climbing, skiing, and hiking. Although I grew up in Toronto, I'm currently based in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, where I've found it is among the best places in the world to have these sorts of hobbies.

Here are a few exciting technologies I've been working with recently:

  • Typescript

  • NextJS

  • Golang

  • Docker

  • Python

Solely developed a comprehensive esports platform prototyped in Figma and implemented using NextJS, Chakra UI, and Firebase. Platform consisted of user and team registration, payment processing via PayPal, integration with Toornament Platform API, and publicly available real-time match and team information. Implemented secure and robust authentication using Oauth2 and managed backend operations with Google Firebase for data storage and serverless functions, facilitating user registration and invitations via email. Co-founded and incorporated a Canadian based esports league, establishing partnerships with leading esports entities and earning a guest speaker role at a Toronto college to discuss our journey and insights.

The Job Application Tracker automates email screening and logging for job applications using Google Cloud's services and OpenAI's GPT-3. Emails arriving in Gmail trigger Cloud Pub/Sub, which activates a Cloud Run service to process the email. If identified as a job application response, details are logged into a Google Sheet. Changes in GitHub prompt Cloud Build to update the application by building a new Docker Image and pushing that image to the Container Registry, automatically deploying that new image to Cloud Run. In order to keep the Pub/Sub subscription active, a Cloud Scheduler cron is configured to do weekly subscription updates.
