I built a custom CMS using Laravel, with a Vue.js admin interface. The site is heavily integrated with Shopify and various other third party API’s, including a custom service their internal IT team developed for displaying customer data. It’s also built using Redis as a caching layer and session handler and Azure’s blob storage for data storage to handle horizontal scaling (should the need arise in the future). Various tracking pixels are implemented, as well as custom event and goal tracking piped through Google Tag Manager.
Email Newsletter Builder
Designers dynamically create newsletters by selecting and sorting components, uploading images, and editing copy in the browser. Newsletters are then able to be downloaded as a ZIP file with CSS inlined, tracking codes applied to links, and image paths updated to relative locations. The editor interface is built in VueJS, which connects to an API built in Laravel.
This is an interactive price slider built using KineticJS. Users are presented with cable package offers on an interactive timeline. Special care was given to ensure optimal performance on mobile devices. The application was built to handle dynamic location-dependent offers provided by their in-house CMS.

Video Message Sync
Clients create custom digital advertisements through a web application. My role was to write Windows software to sync advertisements between digital billboard hardware and the main web application.
Unity3D, Objective-C, AS3
NASA-sponsored Unity3D and Flash exhibits about colonizing the moon in 2070. Raise fish and crops, mine and process minerals, launch shipments with a rail gun, build a water processing plant, and more. Other exhibits include touch tables for viewing lunar facts and videos, as well as an augmented reality exhibit using iPads to “scan” the interior of cargo crates. I designed and developed the majority of the software for these exhibits, and managed a team of additional developers to help offload some of the work from myself.
Paint the Ice
iPad-based finger painting exhibit for a Tampa Bay Lightning centered installation developed in Objective-C.
