My Work

I work at Slice Capital as the Dark Lord of the Sith. Previously, I worked at Barefoot Coders, Hashtack, and a company called Amplified, which I started while I was completing my chemical engineering degree at Penn State.

Since I moved to Silicon Valley in May of 2015, I have worked on numerous mobile apps. Most recently, I've been working on Slice Capital and Firecat. Slice Capital is built using React-Native, Redux, and Javascript while Firecat is built natively in Swift and uses Golang for the backend.

Previously, I worked as an iOS instructor at Make School, a mobile developer at Barefoot Coders, and a software engineer at Hashtack.

Minerva

Minerva is a slack app that helps mentors connect with hackers at hackathons. It was, most recently, used at University of Michigan's hackathon, MHacks 8.

Firecat

One day I got tired of taking and giving business cards so I made an app that allows me to simply select what contact card I want to share with someone and then it let's me send that card to someone via sms or email. The beauty of the app is that no one else needs to have the app for it to work.

Anycdote

Anycdote was inspired by Humans of New York. The app allows users to pin personal stories to geographic locations. Other users can then experience stories that close to them by proximity. Anycdote is written completely in Swift and relies on a Parse backend.

Project Reach

Reach is a secure & discrete communication platform I made for reporters who work in dangerous areas. I built Reach because I believe that every person is entitled to freedom of speech. Reach is both a web app and a native Android app built using React and React-Native. It is currently under development but, even so, it employs a multitude of features to protect users such as encryption of data using SSH, device-based account association rather than user-based association, and active camouflage via a series of distinct app disguises. Testing is currenly being conducted between Harvard and users in Syria.
