PowWow Energy is a start-up that turns data into answers to make the life of growers easier—not more saturated with complicated data.
I utilize the Django web framework and several front-end technologies including Knockout, React, Redux, Highcharts and the Google Maps API to create a smooth user experience for growers, farm managers, and crop advisors.
As user stories develop into feature definitions, I iterate on mock-ups and write code across the stack to bring these new features to life.
I was a part of the Oniracom team from July 2013 - May 2015 as a web developer.
I worked closely with other developers, designers, strategists, and clients to help build responsive websites - many of which are designed to be a breeze to manage in the back-end through ExpressionEngine, Wordpress, and WooCommerce.
for example: Santa Barbara Marathon
My time at Oniracom was an unforgettable learning experience alongside awesome folks!
Co-founder / Technical Lead / VJ
Speak Volumes Media (2013-2016) is a music media entity that I co-founded in April 2013. I developed and designed the responsive website and have been a key decision-maker throughout.
We covered music we like from all over and gave exposure to several local Santa Barbara and Isla Vista acts. Fostering local talent is a proud mark left behind in the ever-so-transient college town culture.
This was my first website. It was an honor to give my colleagues an outlet for their eloquent way with words about music.
Please note: the Speak Volumes site has recently been brought back from the dead purely for demo purposes. Some features are broken and most images are missing from posts. I have made the code for the custom Wordpress theme publicly available on Github.
