I'm a creative web developer and full stack engineer. A few tools in my arsenal include Ruby, Rails, AngularJS, CoffeeScript, Sass, and Postgres, to name a few.
I currently reside in the great city of Boston, where I do my best to be a contributing member of the startup community. I'm the co-founder of a new startup called Pathgather and am currently attending the Startup Institute Boston . I was recently the tech lead over at Abroad101 as well. I stay a bit busy :)
I've built production web applications from the ground up and managed them as traffic hit over 50,000 monthly visitors. I'm not all that bad at web design either.
I love what I do and work much more than the norm happily. I'm a creative lad and try to make that show through in my UX/UI work.
I've managed full-time developers as well as large-scale projects with strict deadlines. Most people seem to like working with me :)
Pathgather is the Kayak for Online Education, a site that helps you find great courses, finish the ones you start, and publicize what you learn. Beta launch is coming in July to help you learn and master web development and design online. Sign up for our beta now!
Abroad101 is the world's first and largest study abroad review website. With over 17,000 student reviews and $120,000 in scholarships awarded, Abroad101 has forever influenced how and where students study abroad.
I spend a lot of time on my professional work but try to take breaks from time to time in order to do some open source work. I've contributed to a few popular repos and have several personal projects.
Stubhub hosted a hackathon with the end goal of building apps that addressed event discovery. I built an app called 'Take Me Out', which was an event discovery plus dating app, where a user could browse events and then invite a date out to an event that interested them. The hack won 2nd place (and was the only solo team entry) and the source code is now owned by Stubhub.
I gave a class on modern web development and using the newest technologies: Sass, Haml/Jade, AngularJS, Node.js, etc. The 1.5 hour talk consisted of a crash course in each of the technologies and a quick walkthrough on using them to build an actual web app. The web app's code can be found here and the slides here Sorry for the formatting/font issues. Keynote -> Powerpoint -> Slideshare can evidently cause some problems.
