Donnie Ellstrom

Full-Stack Developer

Donnie is an accomplished Full-Stack Developer with a unique background in the natural sciences and technology. He was introduced to programming while working for a genetics laboratory where high-throughput computing was used for rapid sequencing of vast amounts of DNA.

His interest in data manipulation and technology landed him at Vessel Management where he was responsible for managing a large fleet of commercial fishing vessels off the coast of Alaska. In this role, Donnie worked with a database managed by NOAA, which presented numerous opportunities for workflow optimization through programming. These optimizations ultimately solidified his passion for programming and development and led him to an immersive full-stack development course at General Assembly. The course greatly bolstered Donnie’s development toolkit. He now builds modern full-stack applications for Fresh, mainly in the JavaScript and Python ecosystems.

Donnie is a big PC hardware buff who is always up for talking about anything programming related, especially time complexity and which languages are best for solving certain problems. Aside from technology, he can talk ad-nauseam about brewing beer and Olympic weightlifting.
