I’m a web developer with a background in design interested in joining a small, fast team to build something that hasn’t been built before. Preferably something mission-driven or working on some kind of experimental tech. I’m good at breaking big messy problems down into small focused ones, and then doing them. I care a lot about accessibility for end users and maintainability for fellow developers.
I’m happiest working with
(including Node.js, React, Vue, Backbone, jQuery, Babel, Webpack, and CoffeeScript),
(including responsive design techniques, BEM organization,
and pre- and post-processors like SASS, LESS, and PostCSS),
SVG and the
and of course good ol’ HTML (with a good understanding of WAI-ARIA).
Crowdpac’s goal is to increase and diversify political engagement by crowdfunding candidates who are new to the world of politics. I work with the Laravel framework for PHP on the back end and use Vue to handle the client-side interactive components.
With the Zooniverse, I built web apps to crowdsource the analysis of scientific data from volunteers. These projects ranged from taking an inventory of marine life off the east coast of the U.S. to mapping predator migration in the Serengeti and from finding anomalies in data from the Large Hadron Collider to charting the structure of the Milky Way galaxy.
I was responsible for about a dozen of the custom projects listed at https://www.zooniverse.org/projects. The source for these is available at https://github.com/zooniverse. In addition to web front ends,
Later, I abstracted out the core interactions from those projects to build the front-end architecture of Zooniverse.org, a platform for scientists to build their own projects (without help from a developer). It’s built with React and makes extensive use of SVG for rich image annotation. It talks to a Ruby on Rails back end over a JSON API.
I also built tools to help with development and data processing in Node and Ruby.
I started there as a designer and transitioned into their first dedicated front-end developer. I also worked on a bit of mobile web app development, both browser-based and published in the App Store (via PhoneGap).
Graduated with a BFA in graphic design.
