Project History
  • FacePop
    Led all technical initiatives as the head of product.

    Managed the development of the website and iOS app for FacePop. The app used the brand new iPhone X True Camera depth sensor to extract the user's head from their background using a custom algorithm. I designed the app, scoped the project, found and managed an extremely talented developer, and ultimately delivered this project for approximately 10% of the total cost that two other firms had quoted.

  • WELL Health
    Led scoping, design, and development.

    I developed the MVP for this company. We built the first version of this HIPPA-compliant application in only six days. Since then, WELL has raised several rounds of funding and secured millions in recurring revenue. After launching, I became an advisor and shareholder.

  • PocketLab
    Led scoping, design, and development of several iOS apps for an education company.

    Over a four year period, I designed, developed, shipped, and maintained the iOS applications for PocketLab. With a small budget, I built several applications to collect and display the data from their Bluetooth enabled hardware. I've earned two patents as a result of our work with this team, and became an advisor and shareholder.
