About Me

Hi, I'm Brendan, and I've been in the software development game for over 8 years now. My focus is on full-stack development, which means I handle everything from the frontend (like Mobile and Web applications) to the backend, including Blockchain Applications, often referred to as dApps.

My journey began in 2014 when I started tinkering with HTML and CSS to create static webpages. This led me to dive into JavaScript, exploring frameworks like React and React Native. Backend-wise, I've focused on Node.js, building robust applications.

More recently, I've been fascinated by blockchain technology. I've been exploring the world of Ethereum and learning how to write Solidity contracts, which are the backbone of smart contracts that run on the Ethereum network.

Over the years I have had the pleasure of being involved in quite a number of large and small scale projects. I’ve worked as a freelancer, a full-stack developer at Jaden Digital, a couple of different start-ups in the cryptocurrency world where I was the lead developer, and now currently as an engineer at Westpac

Here are some technologies that I've worked with recently:

  • React
  • Solidity
  • NextJs
  • Typescript
  • Javascript
  • NodeJs
  • React Native
