A clickstream analytics data warehouse that uses Amazon Redshift to store every page view and event, offering stakeholders an interface to browse, visualize, and analyze that data. Built with Amazon API Gateway, AWS Lambda, and Amazon Redshift, it handles billions of events annually with sustained spikes of over 1,000 events per second.

College Football Playoff National Championship Mobile App

A mobile app built with the Ionic framework and Cordova as a utility for fans of college football attending the College Football Playoff National Championship game. The app worked as the ticket into the event for the fans and was used for the first mobile-ticket-only event in the US.

Sports Live Audio Streaming Mobile App

A mobile app created for a major US sports marketing company, allowing college sports fans to listen to live audio streams of sporting events. I built the app back end with TypeScript, Node.js, and Amazon Aurora PostgreSQL, deployed it in Amazon ECS, and built the mobile app with the Ionic framework and Capacitor.

Live Video Streaming Apps for Smart TVs
