Where have I worked?
PercolateAug 2012 - Mar 2013
Percolate is a social media management system for Fortune 500 companies.
Frontend development heavily using BackboneJS and Bootstrap. It uses a RESTful API and has a Python backend and Django templates. I built the analytics visualizations, a portion of the frame, the company pages, implementation of image editing, and more. Unfortunately, they don't expose very much to the public so it's hard to see.
VimeoJun 2011 - Aug 2012
Vimeo is the home of high quality videos.
I worked on rebuilding different parts of the backend framework and also parts of the frontend. Had the chance to work with SOLR and build an advanced search system, built some internal visualization tools, built the Find Your Friends system, and many other parts, both frontend and backend. One of my favorite pieces was a global visualization that showed active uploads, progress, and failures to different servers from different parts of the globe in realtime.
Big SpaceshipJan 2009 - Jun 2011
I worked here as a developer coding in every language I know, and learning more. I handled a lot of database administration, took lead on many projects, talked and handled clients from a developer perspective when necessary. Big Spaceship gave me the opportunity to work on projects like Skittles.com, Most Awesomest Thing Ever, and Always Beautiful. I developed several libraries while working here, including: BasilJS, Rosemary, CodeExplorer, and parts of the BSS package.
SeesawJan 2007 - Jan 2009
Seesaw is a small exclusive agency with clients including: Nike, Diageo (Smirnoff/Crown Royal), MTV, and Martha Stewart. They're located in Manhattan right in the heart of Chelsea.
I started with full responsibilites over all development. Project requirements ranged from Flash(as2, later as3) to PHP/MySQL. Small banners to full-scale sites with CMS. I handled all frontend/backend/database coding and maintenance. Later hired more developers and led them until I left. One project from this experience was an e-commerce website for the famous Bustelo brands, JavaCabana.com.
Freelance2005 - Present
I've been freelancing for clients off and on for the past 6 years. Before Seesaw, I was living in Nob Hill, San Francisco, CA freelancing. I keep a small portfolio of clients and do jobs of any range of difficulty in a variety of languages.
