Some Recent Work

Affinity.IS

I worked on an amazing set of both web based (Ruby on Rails) and mobile tools that influence the purchasing habits of individuals. During my time here I've been working primarily on social network integration, gamifying aspects of our software, and large scale storage of data in Mongo and Redis for expedient reporting and archiving.

Standard Parking

Worked on upgrading and maintaining parking e-commerce application in Ruby on Rails. This application was built to serve the needs of large events like the Superbowl, municipalities, and parking garages all across the country. My primary responsibility was developing new features. I worked with a remote team of contractors on a daily basis. Also, during my time here I worked to suggest new tools and methods for workflow to increase productivity, communication, and efficiency.

Nashville Fashion Week

Worked with this client since 2010 to help them build a platform that would allow them to easily distribute information, embed their schedule on other websites by building a schedule widget, collecting photos in real time from Twitter, and allowing them to publish high quality photos from the nightly events in real time using an innovative and original custom publishing platform.

Snappylifestyle

I helped an international fashion photographer, Adrian Morales, put together a unique website that would showcase his talents and social media abilities. It has an advanced content management system that allows him to upload zip files of photos that are pushed directly to S3 and then processed by a background process in the application.

Chartered Medical

This is an EMR platform that I architected, designed, and developed for a client in Nashville. It has e-prescription integration, the ability for patients to securely share access to their records with physicians, a video conferencing platform for patients and physicians to interact, and a complete medical records management suite.

Carruth Couture

A young fashion designer, Brandon Carruth, came to us wanting to build a visually simple website that also allowed him to manage his content easily. Lastly, he wanted to be able to blog and give visitors the ability to inquire about certain items on the site. In a couple weeks we put together a solution that integrated with Facebook & Twitter and allowed him to represent his business the way he wanted to.

Nashville Fashion Week Model Search 2013

Our clients, MACS|AMAX and Nashville Fashion Week hired us to put together another model search that would culminate in an event where the finalists would walk the runway. We used our highly successful WallSee technology that uses social network shares as the voting mechanism and put together a content management system to allow them to manage sponsorship, model submissions, and other aspects of the competition.
