ATP Fitness
As the owner of ATP Fitness, I was responsible for all aspects of the application, bringing the project from conception to launch on both the iOS and Android platforms. It is built with an offline-first approach, leveraging SQLite to allow users to run the entire app without a network connection. Custom native modules were developed using Swift and Kotlin. The design is entirely custom and implemented using themes that can be altered by the user. The application allows users to target certain muscle groups and select the equipment they have access to, and the application will generate a workout based on their selections.

At Puttshack, in my capacity as a full-stack developer with a primary focus on back-end technologies, I was integral in architecting and implementing a back-end system using NestJS. My role involved extensive work on building APIs that were performant and integrated with several other back-end systems and microservices. This included connecting with Puttshack's internal booking systems and handling interactions with third-party APIs for loyalty programs, marketing tools, and point of sale (POS) systems. One of my notable contributions was the development of an API that managed and streamlined payment processes, significantly enhancing the booking experience for customers.

Lungo (Acuity Scheduling; via Toptal)
During my tenure as a full-stack engineer on the Lungo project, a sophisticated scheduling platform, I played a pivotal role in developing and managing the back-end infrastructure. My responsibilities included developing a scalable GraphQL server, which served as the singular entry point for the platform's single-page application. This involved not only the creation but also the optimization and management of the server, ensuring seamless handling of a wide range of GraphQL queries, mutations, and subscriptions. To improve the integrity and efficiency of the GraphQL server, I developed a custom test suite as well as an integration with Apollo Engine. This integration was crucial for monitoring key metrics and performance, ensuring the back end operated at optimal levels.

Ingage Corporate Health and Wellness

Full scale all-in-one mobile wellness solution that keeps employees aware, engaged, and on the path to making healthy decisions. The platform allows users to track their wellness activities, meals, and healthy choices all from one application. Users can sync from wearable devices such as Jawbone, Apple, Garmin, etc., and view their progress (along with their fellow employees) in one application.

Tech: React Native, TypeScript, Laravel, GraphQL, Fitbit API, Jawbone API, Apple Healthkit, Garmin API.

Created (and maintain) the open-source Lighthouse PHP package which allows users to serve a GraphQL endpoint from their Laravel application. It greatly reduces the boilerplate required to create a schema, integrates well with any Laravel project, and is highly customizable, giving developers full control over their data.

The platform provides an immediate snapshot of vital practice details including patient statistics, practice revenue, financial expenses, employee forms, office documentation, and much more.
