About Me

Full-Stack Developer in Austin, TX

B.Totsch

Originally from North Carolina, I made my way to Texas after earning my Bachelor of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science at UNC Chapel Hill. From there I gained valuable work experience in a hospital environment. During this time, I met my husband, Mark, and together we tackled the renovation of a 1955 house that became our first home together.

As exciting as my home life was, I started to develop an itch for more challenging work. I felt like I was no longer engaging my curiosity and desire to learn. One of my personal mantras in life is that I should never complain about something that I can change. So, with a nudge from my friends in the tech industry and my husband's generous support, I left the lab to pursue a new career in Web Development. I spent 3 months learning at Galvanize in Austin, TX as a web development immersive student. I built a solid foundation in JavaScript, CSS/HTML while exploring a full-stack curriculum. Since then, I've ventured into the React.js framework and continue to expand my tech stack daily. I'm looking forward to growing my skill set with work experience and further research into emerging technologies.

Portfolio

Word of Mouth Moving

Modern responsive design was of high-priority in the re-development of the Word Of Mouth Moving company website. Much needed improvements were made for all device compatibility. Features including price estimate tables, embedded Google maps, and a quote request form now provide broader, more-dynamic content and reflect a quality consistent with the business.

Fowl Play Game

Together with a classmate, I developed an interactive flappy bird game with an audio visualizer component.  We incorporated JavaScript, CSS3, Phaser.js, Anime.js, and HTML5 Canvas technologies.

Killbase

A full-stack assassin contract organization application. The application was created with JavaScript, HTML5, EJS, CSS3, Express, Knex, and PostgreSQL.

M-O-V-I-N Austin

I worked independently in my web development program to build a CRUD application to serve as an informative website for the people of Austin to aid in the moving process. I incorporated the Google Maps API, JavaScript, CSS3, HTML5, PostgreSQL, Express, and Knex.
