I've been building websites and web applications professionally for over 5 years (since 2012), but I have a sneaking suspicion you aren't here to reminisce about old memories! To keep things succinct, I'm only showing projects from the last two years (Last updated August 2017).
Coronado Beach Fit is a unique take on a residential fitness & health program, with a focus on fun events, personal development, and lasting memories all under the umbrella of one unforgettable vacation in Coronado, CA. Here's a few project highlights:
With so much great wine in Sonoma County, The Wine Spies have carved out a niche for themselves selling a different high quality wine at an unbeatable price every day. As a contractor for TWS, I helped them achieve the following objectives:
Technologies Used: Ruby on Rails
When you're an leader in the solar industry, to describe managing QA on your large-scale solar construction projects using only pencil and paper as a headache would be a gross understatement. Enter Sunscreen. Sunscreen consists of a API server and administrative web interface paired with an iPad app for use by QA teams in the field. The result? An elegant, all-digital solution to a significant organizational problem.
Commissioned by Swinerton Renewable Energy and built in collaboration with The Engine is Red, I was in charge of spearheading web & server aspect of the project. Here's a video of a member of the Swinerton Renewable team discussing the problem we solved, and a few highlights:
In Sonoma County, Wine and Craft Beverages are well-known as the primary economic sectors of the region. With that in mind, The Engine is Red came up with a great idea - why not offer personalized Wine Tours to SF Bay Area Millennials featuring great design and an emphasis on a one-of-a-kind experience?
While the Engine team came up with the creative and functional details of the project, they contracted me to build their pass redemption system, comprising of the following:
I'm an itch scratcher at heart. Although I'm not quite ready to unveil these to the general public, I'd love to talk your ear off over any of these side projects I've been working on (or chat about your wild ideas!)
Over the course of 2016, I built a custom trading app using a strategy centered around social sentiment data and some relatively simple trading rules. The app paper trades during market hours, and although I'm not trading actual cash, my algorithm has gained over 280% in less than 10 months (as of August 2017).
Using the Amazon API, in 2017 I built a basic application that rewrites niche product reviews using a Natural Language Processing API. I have fever dreams of this kick-starting a large-scale product review site once the quality of my rewriting algorithm improves.
When my wife discovered Poshmark (an app for iOS which facilitates a marketplace for gently used clothing), we thought it would be a great idea to build an application which will help power sellers create and save searches that return only items that could be resold at a profit.
Based in California, I've been building websites since I was only 10 years old (remember Geocities?), and professionally since 2012.
Growing up, I worked a number of odd jobs before I decided to become a developer. During high school, I pumped gas and pulled nails out of tires at a full-service gas station. Before graduating from San Diego State University, I worked as a salesperson and technician at an Apple store by day, and performed live as a bass player in rock'n'roll bands by night. These experiences allowed me to interact with thousands of people from all walks of life, each with unique stories and wisdom to share.
In the summer of 2015 I was lucky enough to marry my best friend Nicole. Together we love hosting board game nights, hiking, golfing, vintage movies, and any kind of travel or food-related adventures we can stumble upon.
I feel blessed to be able to be able to solve problems, create brand new products, and help businesses for a living. Every day is an opportunity to learn something new!
PS - I spend a lot of time thinking about startups and delivering massive value to customers. If you're putting a team together and are looking for a founding engineer, let's talk!
