Airclass is a rich, immersive experience of a live training environment. I worked to make this WebRTC application scale and function in constrained cooperate environments as well as built up other collaborative features such as realtime annotations.

Quinncia, February 2015 to July 2016

Quinncia, an automated interview platform and marketplace for students and employers, was cofounded by a business lead and myself as the tech lead. Quinncia was accepted in the StartupNext Boston accelerator with 8 other elite startups. All the technologies were developed by myself including reliably recording the student within the web browser plugin-free and universal javascript with React.

teamDigital, December 2014 to January 2015

I developed a platform that enabled the realtime moderation and judging of multiple SoundCloud.com, MLB, and NFL contests. Because of its success, the tool was repurposed as a universal moderation/judging tool for other contests.

Social Psychology Network, July 2009 to December 2014

Having been awarded a grant from the National Science Foundation, the Network hired myself to build a web community and continue their mission. As part of their small team, I built interactive psychological demonstrations in addition to a profile platform for thousands of social psychologists to show their research. I trained and managed student interns to help with testing and support requests. I also helped put together the largest course on Coursera, "Social Psychology" for hundred of thousands of students and worked with Coursera staff to include a new unique feature for the course.

CultureU, January 2009 - July 2009

CultureU was a startup that designed a "cultural networking" site for college students to expose their creative talents. I built portfolios and other interactive frontend features. CultureU grew to include 30 students and faculty who actively contributed.
