Significant achievements:

(this is getting updated all the time)

  • ReadMe: Mobile-first web app to make professional networking less bad. A collaboration exercise where I served as tech lead, scrum master, and architect. Full-stack app with JS, HTML, CSS, Express, EJS, Postgres, Knex, and bCrypt. Detailed debrief is here.
  • ChromaCon: a highly-interactive rendition of Conway's Game of Life (see Play button ^^). Desktop only. Tons of bells and whistles including playback controls, color interpolation, floating window UI, interactive pattern dropper, MVC architecture, etc.. Built in ~60 hours over 1 week in March 2018. A detailed debrief of the project is here.
  • This site: (in its current state) was built in about 10 hours on a Sunday in April.
  • Medium Blog: featuring, among other things, pretty thorough debriefs on my major projects.
  • Work history: can be found at LinkedIn. Don't miss the recommendations near the bottom, applicable to the most recent 2-3 years of work.
  • Github: ... is a pile of half-finished tutorials and code school exercises. But feel free to poke around.
