Front-end developer with 13+ years of experience. I work best in early-stage start-up environments, where there is lots of room to innovate and iterate. If you need someone to help build out a site from the bottom up, I am your man.
Undecidable Labs was an pre-funding stage start-up founded by the CTO and co-founder of Chomp. The core product was a multi-facted search engine & API (much like Chomp), with a website being the main search client/interface. I was in charge of that website, and worked closely with the designer and search engineer in order to build out all aspects of this site. The framework behind it was built in Revel (Golang), and I used jQuery and Mithril.js on the front-end. The bulk of the work for this project was focused on the search page, which functioned as a single-page app, displaying results in a list, with detail pages for each result, and a very detailed set of filtering/refining options for each search vertical.
Click2Care was a micro-crowdfunding site with a focus on non-profit orgs. I was brought on to take ownership of the website after it was handed off from an outside development firm, and handled all further development. The site was built using Django, with an Angular 1.x front-end. On the back-end, the site interfaced with several services (which I did not write) for things like payment and recommendations/discovery.
Simpleform was a small web development agency that I worked for on a number of projects between 2012 and 2014. Clients included AT&T and Mule Design.
Tugboat Yards was a crowdfunding site that existed from 2013 to 2015. I was originally brought onto the project at the design stage, building HTML wireframes for Mule Design on contract, and was later contracted directly by Tugboat Yards to help build those wireframe into the full site. Tugboat was built on Flask (Python), with your standard HTML/CSS/JS on the front-end. I was responsible for all front-end development, plus much of the controller logic involved with interacting with the front-end.
Chomp was a app recommendation service for mobile apps, on both Android and iOS devices. The core product was a search engine and API, and our mobile apps and the website were all considered clients for this API. I was responsible for all development work on the website. Backend for the site was built in Code Igniter (PHP), front-end was standard HTML/CSS/JS. I also managed a separate site that was meant to be a management console for our yet to be released app advertising platform. This console allowed for self-service advertising for app developers, and interfaced with Braintree for payment processing. I handled all aspects of development for this separate site, front-end and back-end.
Scribd, at the time I was hired, was a self-publishing platform, designed to give authors a way to publish and sell their work online. I was hired as the senior front-end developer, responsible for helping streamline their front-end development processes. The company had no dedicated front-end developer at the time, but had several “general purpose” developers, who did both front and back end development, but were not really front-end specialists at all. The site itself was built in Ruby on Rails. I was brought on to set some development standards for front-end development at the company, plus to help out with a major site redesign at the same time.
Fluid is a design firm that I worked for on various project in 2005. Clients included The North Face, Jansport and Timberland.
McAfee was the first job I had as an actual developer. My job mostly consisted of building out and managing partner sites and localized versions of our product pages for over 12 different languages. This involved managing XML & XSLT templates, plus working closely with our translation and QA teams, which were both located overseas.
