Projects
Netflix Bot

A small tool I made that queries netflix every 24 hours and sees what the newest Instant Watch titles are, and then tweeting them out to the netflix_bot twitter account. It has almost 7,000 followers at the time of writing this and has been retweeted by many celebrities when their special/show becomes available.

W8 App

(In development) - An app for restaurants to use at the host/hostess stand, rather than taking down names with a pen and paper and having everyone stand around in the small cramped space infront of the restaurant, we created an app that the hostess can use to take down their name and phone number, and then their table is ready notify them by text message automatically through the Twilio API. Once they come to the restaurant and sit down, they can check them in and go to the bottom of the list. 

Tournamentor

(In development) - As a competitive gamer, I wanted a way for people to create and manage double elimination brackets easier and with a friendlier UI than what Challonge.com on a mobile device offered, so I started drawing up a native mobile interface. Production has started on this app and I am aiming for a late May release.

Volunteering
Highlands Ranch High SchoolWebmaster
Aug 2010 - May 2011

Volunteered to keep the high schools web page current and continually design new front pages for events while I was in high school. In this position I mostly dealt with executing design and getting core functionality built into the website that allowed teachers to edit their own sections of the website, for instance I would get a drawing of how the band director wanted the band website to look, build it, and make it easily editable so he could add in his own information at will.
