Calitho also known as California Lithography was a project I worked on with BrickSF in 2012. The goal was to build a custom WordPress theme with a responsive layout. The main challenge was working with a designer new to responsive layouts and keeping an open communication about what can an cannot be done.
Ekko is a cross-platform app for messaging and productivity. I started with ekko in 2011 working on the UI/UX and directly with the web application. Working on this project has given me the opportunity to learn iOS/Objective-C at a rapid pace. I continue to be involved with both the web application and the iOS application.
New York Yacht Club was a great opportunity to try out new layout styles. Targeting larger desktop and high resolution screens we were able to build templates for NYYC and make them stand out for their members. Main challenges with this project were translating the designs to workable CSS/HTML.
I was lucky to help out a friend in need with this project. Denis Schofield is a traveling architect and was looking for a unique layout for his travel blog. With a specific set of layout details, I was able to create a WordPress theme for Denis that made it possible for him to share his experience across the globe.
Working with Craig Frazier on his new site was definitely a challenge. He wanted to be able to update his work from time to time plus keep track of what people like and didn’t like from his collection. So a unique solution was in order and a combination of WordPress and Python/Flask/MongoDB seemed to be the solution.
Ted Jacobs Engineering Group was a good opportunity to try new layout and filtering functions. I cam midway into this project and was my second Python/Django template building job. We added some fun animations using jQuery and CSS3.
SilentFilm.co was a personal project that came out of a hackathon in 2012. I teamed up with Nicholas Stephan, a colleague from ekko.net. We build an interactive application that taps into both EchoNest API and Tumblr API. Instruction are to load up the site and type something. The application will pull animated gifs based on your search term and play them to the beat of the song.
AIASF was another Python/Django project where I was in charge of building the templates. Another great opportunity to try out new jQuery functions.
Deltaway Energy is a waste-to-energy plant company. They build and maintain power-plants that run completely on waste. This was my first start-to-finish Python/Django project.
