    Digital Project Manager
    March 2018 – Present
    Finished the year-long Louder Than Ten Apprenticeship program on digital project management.

  • Denim & Steel Interactive
    Software Engineer
    February 2013 – Present
    Worked on 30+ successfully launched projects. Native iOS mobile apps, cross platform mobile development, design and development of API and backend services, and web applications using modern javascript frameworks. Actively involved in end-to-end software development cycle, from understanding the requirements all the way to post-launch maintenance and change management.

    Highlights

    • API Design: Worked on a handful of projects where an API service needed to be designed and implemented from scratch. This involved the choice of platform (Ruby on Rails or Express JS), data modeling and implementation. In Quini, a wine tasting application, the API also generated recommendations based on the person's tasting profile. In Porter, the API integrated with Particle Cloud API and AWS IoT and would allow users to interact seamlessly with all their devices via one interface.

    • 2D Graphics: Worked on creating graphical interfaces on the web (Canvas) and iOS (Core Graphics).
