Experience

  • Quick React Redux App
    https://www.npmjs.com/package/quick-react-redux-app

    A minimal bootstrapper for developing a static React-Redux web application that can quickly be built for the web.

    Unlike other tools, this utility is not particularly married to a technology stack; due to the fact, it creates a project with very few dependencies, it does not suffer slowdowns typical in more heavy-handed bootstrappers.

    There is also no eject step required to deploy for the web, just running "NPM run build" generates all the needed files.

    This project has been field-tested in a number of my projects.

  • Swab Animator
    http://swab.am/

    This project centers around an online web application for the quick creation of SVG animations in the browser.

    It uses React/Redux to drive the UI and is architected in a declarative, event-sourced way that theoretically would allow for infinite undo or multi-user editing.

  • Avid MediaCentral | Cloud UX
    https://www.avid.com/products/mediacentral/mediacentral-production-management

    I worked with a small team in the development of the player, sequence, and audio components for Avid MediaCentral | Cloud UX.

    I had many other responsibilities revolving around the actual development, including QA, DevOps, UI design, and more.

  • Litify Referral Network
    https://www.litify.com/litify-referral-network/

    From the website:
    "The Litify Referral Network is an all-in-one platform solution that allows law firms of all sizes to easily send, receive, and manage legal case referrals for FREE."

    The front-end portion of this application is written in ReactJS with a small auxiliary Express server for serving mostly static content. My primary task was to clean up the front and back ends of this application for development and production.

    I updated all of the npm dependencies (including updating to the latest versions of React and react-router) and refactored the build scripts and Express server to be as atomic and simple as possible. I also recreated a number of components, including a custom date picker and a brand new sign-up page and flow.

    The application no longer has serious dependency vulnerabilities, is much leaner, and runs much faster.

  • Monadnock Congregational Church
    http://monadnockcongregational.com/

    This was a pet project where I migrated a basic server-side CMS website to a client-generated Nuxt and TailwindCSS site.

    Noteworthy features are under the hood. The website can be updated and published with a single script, compiling the Vue.js templates and sending the files to the webserver via FTP with a custom node script. A small PHP script retrieves Google Calendar information.

  • Strata — Raven Black

    I developed sophisticated live and historic radar detection software with an expert team of fellow developers.
    My responsibilities were primarily on the Vue.js and TypeScript-heavy front end, but I also started to work on their to-be-published Hugo website.

  • Transplant Services — Health Data Movers
    https://www.healthdatamovers.com/transplant-services/

    I worked with a small team of developers on the front end and back end of a web application that supported medical professionals in the corneal transplant industry through documentation of referrals, tissue recovery, and medical review. On the front end, I developed pages on React, Redux, and MaterialUI. On the back end, I modified and created services with Node.js, MySQL, Sequelize, WebSockets, and Twilio/SendGrid for sending notifications.
