Cool things I build.
Whether it’s building elegant personality filled sites for businesses or abstracting voting theorems that would make any third-world authoritarian sweat, I enjoy working with clients to deliver projects that are both highly functioning and highly engaging.
I love working with front-end frameworks like React. Great new tools like Gatsby and Next are creating the next era of blazingly fast sites that are literally anticipating users' needs and shifting infrastructure serverless.
It’s one thing for a site to function, but it’s another level of enjoyment when a user is comfortable and actually wants to be there. I take the time to develop an asthetically pleasing and functional layout that targets users and drives them towards content.
Nobody likes being left high and dry. I work with clients to establish a clear understanding of what the final product will be. From the first phone call to the final handoff, everything is laid out clearly.
My recent builds
These sites top the list of my recent work. Each of them was built using different stacks but all are excellent examples of the types of sites I enjoy creating.
Summer at Altamont
I do a lot of work building sites and services for The Altamont School. The website for Altamont's summer school was in need of a complete overhaul: new marketing pages, easier-to-read information for prospective customers, a CMS for administrators, and a registration system capable of handling payments. This site is a great example of a web-based application that's built on a Flask back end and a React front end.
Lou's Pub holds a special place in my heart. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better owner and group of bartenders. When Mike Carpri asked if I'd be interested in helping him revamp his site, I was instantly game. This is the first production webiste I built using React. While the stack has been updated over the past year, it takes advantage of compounding React's extensibility with build tools like Gatsby.
Leading up to the COVID-19 quarantine, I knew I wanted to do something to evangleize the great tools and services out there to help other teachers. With my colleage, Ryan James, I built this site as a repository of thoughts on pedagogy, teaching practices, and services for teachers. This is a Gatsby site that was thrown together in about 72 hours; rebuilds are triggered with every PR to the repository on GitHub.
