Client Projects

Vets Prevail

While working with Vets Prevail, I developed an advanced multimedia e-learning engine that utilized choose-your-own-adventure type branching logic. The engine was used to teach cognitive-behavioral therapy to veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The front-end for the e-learning software was coded with ActionScript 3, and Ruby on Rails was used for the back end.

AskBlue Medicare / AskBlue Federal

I was the sole full-stack developer on the AskBlue projects while working with Sandstorm Design as both employee and contractor. I created an ActionScript 3 game engine with branching choose-your-own adventure logic and synchronized audio and animation for the front-end. The client had requested that we run the app on Microsoft servers, so on the back end, I used PHP, the Kohana framework, and a Microsoft SQL database. I created a full back end reporting and analytics engine, and also ported parts of the game engine to PHP, which gave us the option of creating a version of the site that screen readers could access.

Liquid Thread

While freelancing at Liquid Thread, I worked as a full-stack developer on several major corporate websites. Some have since been redesigned, but the the sites listed below are essentially unchanged since I worked on them. All these sites used a custom Ruby on Rails CMS (originally created by Liquid Thread's primary developer), with a significant front-end component created using Backbone, Handlebars, and CoffeeScript.

1xRun

I worked as Chief Technology Officer at 1xRun, and as part of my duties, I updated and refactored 1xRun's e-commerce website, which was built in PHP with CodeIgniter. The site suffered from a great deal of poorly written, untestable code, and some pages and database queries were extremely slow. I not only fixed numerous bugs, but with the help of data supplied by New Relic, was able to identify and optimize the slowest website components; as a result, site performance was significantly improved, with some operations performing as much as 100 times faster. I also created a new set of blogging tools, using PHP micro-framework Slim.
