If you need help building your website, you have a cool startup idea you need help with, or you just want some advice, please feel free to contact me. I'm considering both contract and full time work. For full-time work, I'd prefer remote or limited onsite requirements but I am open to discussing full-time and onsite for the right position.
Some Recent Positions & Work Examples
Hearst Health Innovation Lab
I am working on developing a product for prior authorization in the pharmaceuticals sector of healthcare. In this project I am using Ruby on Rails, MySQL, Mongo, Angular, XML, and several other technologies. I am helping plan out features using agile methodology and implementing those features within a small team of developers.
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.
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.
