The most amazing...
...project I've created was a mobile game with over 20,000 downloads. I had a childhood goal to create a game and is the reason I learned both coding and design.
Senior Software Engineer
- Worked as the first developer on the InVision Studio project. Developed the Layout Engine used by the application to manage complex visual transformations as well as many other subsystems that are still in use in the application today.
- Responsible for research and development of prototypes for new product ideas. Built many experimental prototypes that focused on touch, gesture, and pen support for prototyping.
- Created new features for a variety of products found on the InVisionApp.com website.
- Assisted in creating a single-page web application for Southwest Airlines for the purpose of tracking flight times and delays at stations.
- Created a tool that allowed front-end developers to continue to develop new features while they waited for back-end developers to implement new APIs. This prevented developers from being blocked and greatly increased velocity.

One interesting feature about this game is that is uses a custom developed algorithm that can create an almost infinite number of randomly generated game boards without any risk of creating an unsolvable puzzle.
