Project History

  • Home Technician Video Chat Tool
    Managed the development of a web chat and video annotation tool for home technicians built on React Native and WebRTC.

    This tool allowed a home technician to communicate directly to the homeowner via web chat with the ability to annotate the video to explain exactly what was required for the repair and show that the repair was done properly.

  • Social Video Application
    Created a social video application that allowed users to create video playlists and share them with their friends.

    This application allowed users to create playlists from multiple video sources, e.g., YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter, and share them via their favorite social networks. The application also allowed the user to cast their videos to any web-enabled TV.

  • Consumer Loyalty Application: Heineken USA/Redstripe Beer
    Sourced and managed a remote development team to build a loyalty application including videos, games, leaderboard, and AR.

    This application was built for iOS, Android, and HTML5. I designed the architecture as a web service back-end and a modular front-end so that the system was adaptable to add new content and additional integrations. The system allowed for personalized newsfeeds to users, gamification, and integration with third-party vendors and social networks.
