- The CoinsultantsPartner (Candidate), 2015 - 2016Technological debt, code cohesion, and defect triage are the pillars of my focus in strategizing around the development and deployment of modern full stack implementations and hypermedia applications. Ethics and technology must never become too increasingly divergent in the growth of human intelligences. My vision is to transition merchants from classical yet restrictive, “patchwork” FinTech to decentralized, privacy-sensitive, generational Friendly permaware that is beneficent to humans.
- LoveStampCTO, 2014 - 2015LoveStamp is a powerful engagement platform for merchants to say thanks to their fans. Activity: Say hi to our team. For double rewards, make a love sign with your hands. We Node.
- Dun & BradstreetWeb Engineer, 2013 - 2014Created Grunt recipes/Node.js integration for existing build ecosystem based on Go Build Servers. (e.g., Consuming in-house font icon libraries at build time via grunt-curl.)Built out lightweight Express/Node.js-based local development environment with http-proxy to consume pre-production API endpoints.Set up Karma for Unit Testing. Set up Protractor for E2E testing. Combined RequireJS/r.js, AngularJS (angularAMD), BreezeJS (strictly API consumption, non-Entity Framework), Bootstrap, and Google Maps (with MapClusterer) for a modular and modern-ish mobile front end. (Not Responsive, but focused on a small set of devices; and yes, that tech stack, of which I defended use cases for RequireJS and BreezeJS specifically.)Introduced BEM CSS ideas/concepts to manage Big CSS codebases.Introduced analytical tools like Plato and analyze-css for static analysis of JS and CSS build.Introduced tools to automate CSS sprite creation.Implemented datacontext-dependent D3 graphs (Treemap, Doughnut, etc. charts) for cheap visualization with light interactivity to give insight into arbitrary data sets. (I call this "data painting," basically.)Implemented minimalistic, responsive data tables.Knowledge sharing at semi-weekly UI Stand Up meetings (presenting modern tools like FF's 3D View and its use-cases, etc. or various CLI tools because *nix). Helped craft and conduct developer interview sessions (in-person, live coding, and phone screening).

- SchedgmuleFounder, 2016 - presentSchedgmule does everything right the first time. Twice. It’s lovely and frightening at the same time. Schedgmule makes it possible to validate your future self. Schedgmule might even take a dismissive fuck for you. With the right conversations, Amazon and Schedgmule could probably launch a fleet of alter-world prostitutes to defeat the United States government. Whatever Schedgmule can do, only Schedgmule can do better. Schedgmule is more like a superhero, akin to the sandwich or the idea of ideas. Schedgmule will save your life.
