Experience

  • Finishings Selection Assistant

    A Drupal 8 based application that allows new residents of communities to choose from materials and finishes for their new homes before they are built, including cabinets, flooring, counters, and plumbing fixtures. In its current state, the move-in coordinators of the community can record the selections, tally upgrade costs, print an itemized contract, and pass the information to the builders.
    I was responsible for every aspect of the application including interface design, front and back-end development, deployment, and training.

  • Digital Signage

    An application making use of Drupal 7, RethinkDB, and React to publish slides for events, announcements, and resident services. I was responsible for setting up and preparing the data sets to be sent to the RethinkDB and ultimately the React implementation of the application.

  • Communications Portal Suite

    A Drupal 7 based application that presented content to registered users based on their relationship to the retirement community it was built for. This could be residents, family members, staff, or people on the waitlist. For v1, I was responsible for every aspect of development and deployment. For v2, I refactored how data was queried and aggregated as well as the incorporation of third-party APIs.

  • Custom CMS

    An abstracted Drupal 7 CMS that focused client administrators on the things that were relevant to them. This hub allowed for a single point of entry to go out to various touchpoints and audiences. I picked up this project about halfway through its initial development and took over all aspects from there.

  • Auditing Platform for Disbursment of Government Funds

    A Drupal-based application for auditing and processing requests for federal funds at a per-state level. I came into the project after it had begun and immediately assisted in the refactoring of existing code to be more efficient and DRY. After refactoring, I developed many features to assist in data management and auditing process. I have since moved into a consultative role for the project.
