Andrew Garcia

Engineer, Fullstack Developer

specializing in the NERDS stack (Node.js, Express, React, Databases using SQL). Previously, I was working as a control systems engineer in the automotive industry, and have always been passionate about software. In my spare time, I would work on my various side projects and improve my programming skill set. This led to my decision to leave my current position to pursue my passion for coding. I have just completed the Software Engineering program at Fullstack Academy, and currently work as a fellow at the school. I love the challenge of problem solving as well as constantly learning new technologies.

Portfolio Redesign- 2017

Designer & Front-end Developer
