I've been designing and building user interfaces since 2007. My career
has been defined by building and maintaining complex front-end
applications alongside many contributors. I also can bring my computer
science education to bear on backend development, aiding in business
logic, infrastructure, and data model design. I'm a polyglot developer: I
appreciate the opportunity to experiment with new languages and

Remote in Boston, MA
Faraday provides AI-driven data science for companies that can't or
don't want to set up their own in-house data science group. They use
a flexible infrastructure to apply artificial intelligence to
different business problems, from generating marketing lists to
recommending the locations of new storefronts.
As a small startup looking for a niche in the market, my role is
multifaceted. My main responsibility is improving their self-service
market analysis web application. I'm also involved in database
design discussions, data security, and continuous integration.
Software ArchitectLola Travel
Lola Travel is a startup that is building lightweight, user-focused
travel software for small businesses.
My role was to provide technical leadership and support on three
React-based projects: A React Native mobile app that can be used to
book hotels and flights, a React web application that travel
administrators within a company may use to track and manage
business trips that employees have booked, and a web application
that Lola agents use to provide support to the other two apps,
served by a graphql endpoint.
Senior EngineerPwnie Express
Pwnie Express provides vulnerability and threat detection software.
They use custom-designed sensors to detect devices connected to a
network and wireless devices that are adjacent to the network like
cell phones, bluetooth devices, wireless printers, or credit card
skimmers. These devices are categorized and indexed, and can be
investigated using their web application.
My job was threefold: I worked with other developers to implement
new features that users and prospective clients want, that would
drive engagement on the platform; I lead an application-wide effort
to migrate the project from a legacy Ember implementation to one
written in React, with more modern and functional sensibilities;
And finally, I provided user experience leadership in an
environment where there were many talented engineers, support
reps, and salespeople, but no designers.
Senior User Interface DeveloperDealer.com / Dealertrack
Dealer.com provides software as a service for car dealerships. Their
primary offering is dynamic website design, powered by rules-based
inventory pricing and A/B testing. They were acquired by DealerTrack
in 2014, which was subsequently acquired by Cox Automotive in 2015.
I was one of four founding members of a team tasked with building
the best-possible automotive CRM system, implemented in enterprise
Java, Groovy, and Grails. I worked with industry experts to solve
complex user experience problems, and worked to connect the backend
of the CRM to the company's Hadoop-based analytics solution. I also
helped lay down the cornerstones of a new "common container"
project that sought to unify the UI codebases of many Dealer.com
and Dealertrack properties into something more consistent, usable,
