1.Selected works

Simply Measured app.simplymeasured.com

As Product Engineer, I wore a number of hats polishing and hacking both Simply's corporate web site and their namesake web application at Simply Measured.

Role: Ruby, Rails, UI and UX design, jQuery, CSS, HAML, WordPress

Red Cape Project redcapeproject.com

The Red Cape Project is a private "dream journal" app in use by a large hospital in Miami, Fl. It's a way for the hospital's leadership to keep in touch with (and help coordinate solutions for) their employees goals and dreams. Really cool app for friend and past collaborator, David Vittoria.

Role: Django development, Bootstrap and front-end dev, design.

Jon and Cari jonandcari.com

A labor of love. :) Having a wedding in Seattle means 1. yes you have a web site, 2. hell yes it's responsive, 3. probably has geolocation and digital RSVPs to boot, doesn't it? (Answer: yes.)

Role: Design, Django / Cactus / Python, Illustration, jQuery, groom, etc.

Audiophiles know and love this respected brand of high-end audio electronics. I collaborated with Peachtree Audio to help get their new e-commerce site up and running, powered by Magento.

A doozie of an e-commerce site for this leading outdoor apparel brand. Their parent company, Timberland, was recently purchased for a cool $2 billion.

Be Good to Mom www.begoodtomom.com

After striking out for 26 consecutive years in trying to get my mother something she liked for Mother's Day, it hit me: flowers. And why complicate things when she loves flowers? I built Be Good to Mom because my friends told me it's a million dollar idea. I sure think so.

Role: Design, product development, Django & Python, SOAP, front-end dev.

Max of the Day www.maxoftheday.com

I built a photo blog to capture daily photos of my son Max. It's my favorite little project, for my other favorite little project. Features responsive, mobile-friendly views. Powered by camera phones and good ol' email attachments.
