Web Developer

  • HTML/CSS, JavaScript, Ruby, and Python are my jams. Experience with Ruby on Rails, Sinatra, jQuery.

    Co-inventor of the ODO tracking system.

    Web developer, and educator. I love to talk about creating things, from comics to apps. I've immersed myself in tech because I like a challenge. I've immersed myself in education because I love helping people grow. I'm interested in finding people's' pain points and easing them, building good things for good people.

  • ODO Tracking System

    Patented as of July 2018. Created because I noticed a need. Before this project, machine uptime was tracked using a bike odometer and time was logged at the end of the day. Initially Python scripts ran on Raspberry Pis to send data from machine to a Rails API, which built reports and crunched numbers regarding job costs, operator performance, and material used. Project now implements a PHP backend. I managed the project, acting as the go-between for the developers and management. I still consult on this project.
