I’m a web developer with a background in design.
I’m most experienced working with
(including React, Vue, Backbone, jQuery, Babel, Webpack, CoffeeScript, and Node.js),
(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 accessibility and WAI-ARIA).
Zooniverse connects researchers with volunteer citizen scientists to analyze mountains of data. I built about a dozen bespoke web interfaces for a variety of image classification tasks, ranging from taking an inventory of marine life in the North Atlantic to tracking predator migration patterns in the Serengeti to finding anomalies in Large Hadron Collider data to mapping the structure of the Milky Way.
Later, I distilled the common interactions from our collection of projects to build out the front-end architecture of the new Zooniverse.org, a platform for scientists to manage their own image classification workflows without needing a dedicated developer. It’s built with React and makes extensive use of SVG for rich image annotation. The back end is a JSON API built with Ruby on Rails.
I also built tools for development and data processing in Node and Ruby.
I started with Vodori 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.
