Allan Vila

Front-End Software Engineer

I’m a self-taught Full-Stack Web Developer that specializes in React applications.

Covid hit, I wanted a change with a better work/life balance. Managing a 50-60hr sales work week, father of two, and loving on my soon to be fiance. I’d code from 9:30pm - 2:30am and land a full-time developer position in 7months!
