The MLS Almanac is an app I created based on the openfootball data for US Major League Soccer. It is intended to be a historical reference, and tool to understand trends throughout the MLS by presenting the data in an accessible format. The site is structured by season and team, and provides JSON hooks to all the information in the database back-end. This includes matchup results between all teams for the entire season, as well as roster information and stats for each player.
Apptini was a concept that a college friend of mine came up with. The idea was to virtualize a workstation, something that was a relatively young idea back in 2008. As a proof of concept, I designed a website for connecting users with a prototype platform running Linux, with several apps pre-installed. The connection was made with a secure Java applet running directly on the website itself. I implemented and designed the website, and worked on the Java applet that facilitated the connection.
GiveChange was a non-profit startup based in San Francisco, whose goal was to engage the online generation in philanthropy by incentivizing small donations and attendance at interesting events throughout the city. I helped on their web development team implementing a Ruby on Rails app that hosted fundraising goals, and provided an online marketplace for charitable donations. For about a year, I was part of this dynamic, 4-person team.
From 2007 to 2009, I participated in the University of Illinois Varisty Men's Glee Club - a men's choir. I served as a member and webmaster, where I brought the group to iTunes, set up an online payment system, and of course, redesigned the website. I also designed one of our concert posters - a parody of the Wii Music video game cover, advertising our spring concert. The website has since gone under new ownership, but the group is still going strong.
