Over the past 15 years I’ve delivered software projects for small startups, established businesses, and major brands.
Nowadays I freelance for early stage startups and develop internal tools for PR agencies including PressFriendly, the one I co-founded.
I prefer to work with Ruby and React but i’ve worked professionally in Objective C, Swift, Python, Node, and PHP. I’ve used many frameworks including NLTK, Scikit-learn, Django, Vue, Ember, Angular, CakePHP, Symphony, and more.
HTML/CSS (responsive, etc.), SQL, Elasticsearch, MongoDB, Redis, RegEx, Bash and general server admin tasks, Database optimization, Photoshop (will cut and prepare assets as needed), APIs (facebook graph, twitter, google maps, stripe, paypal, youtube, and many more), Git, machine learning and natural language tools and APIs.
I’ve delivered features, iOS apps, browser extensions, and social apps for startups including HelloSign, Mattermark, Mismo, and FullContact.
When I worked in advertising I built microsites and apps for high profile brands including Exxon, Claritin, Oppenheimer, Allure, Hyatt, Plantronics, Paypal, LiveActive, Barilla, Triscuit, Charles Schwab, Clearasil, Volvo Cars North America, Lacoste, and Dos Equis.
Excellent communication skills. Happy to go into detail explaining options and limitations.
Calm and collected during crunch time.
