Professional Experience

Rackspace Technology

October 2017 - Present

I develop the UI for the Microsoft 365 admin portal for Rackspace Technology.

Daily, I develop product features, write code reviews, agree with backend developers on API contracts, build mock APIs, and work closely with a product team and UX designer to finalize designs and scope for our product roadmap.

Additionally, I lead a global team of frontend developers, taking ownership of planning projects, establishing code patterns, ensuring code quality and best practices, progressing towards an architectural vision, engineering the deployment pipeline, and documenting along the way.

From time to time, I take on additional responsibilities such as crafting and conducting job interviews, contributing to the UI component library of the company's design system, performing tech talks and team demos, and designing mockups for upcoming projects.

Vigilant Cyber Systems

October 2016 - June 2017

I developed a prototype for the Department of Defense that reported vital health metrics of soldiers in combat.

I researched biometrical sensors that may predict common fatal injuries in battle. From this research, we could develop an application that would increase the survival rates of combat soldiers.

I designed and developed a UI that received a stream of simulated health metrics and displayed the updates on a visual model.

The final research and development were submitted to the United States' Department of Defense.

Matthew Henry

Winter 2020

The Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible got published in 1706. Several of the online versions look that old in computer years.

I developed a version with a modern look and feel, leveraging modern web technologies, including a React frontend and GraphQL backend.

GG|

Summer 2017

At the time, my friend Charles Watson was working on launching GG|, an app for gamers to track achievements and manage their backlog (think Goodreads for video games). Flash forward to 2020, the app has over 60k members.

I had the pleasure of helping Charles with designing some mockups early on in the app's development.
