about me
josh hawks headshot

Full-Stack Software Engineer at the Texas School Safety Center, part of Texas State University in San Marcos, TX. With expertise in React and Ruby on Rails, I develop and maintain the organization's websites, databases, and applications, ensuring high-quality and efficient solutions. My background in music education and graphic design has given me a unique perspective, allowing me to approach problem-solving with creativity and precision.

In addition to my technical pursuits, I am a freelance classical musician, playing both the oboe and bassoon, as well as a graphic designer. Outside of work, I find joy in hiking, biking, and playing softball, always seeking new ways to challenge myself and embrace a balanced lifestyle.
