About

things I do

Front-end

My freelance career took off in 2012, shaking hands with a variety of small businesses, websites were made and clients were happy. Rainydayidea came to fruition as a safe haven and playground for all things web. After two years of building a generous portfolio, I was recruited by Conversica as an engineer. While taking a leap forward into new technologies, my front-end days are not over as I continue to enforce best practices, encourage and imagine great user experiences, and push the limits of responsive design and scalable code.

At Conversica, if I am not smashing away at ping-pong, I am probably engineering all sorts of goodies. Ranging from internal application tools such as UI dashboards, client metric reports, lead management tools, and integrations that streamline our system of lead processing from various CRMs. Anything that automates an internal process for fellow engineers, customer service reps, and account managers, is where most of my time is spent.

Emotional Investment and Successful Ideas

A few weeks ago I had this idea for an app I thought would be useful for singer/songwriters and guitarists. Like any motivated developer would do, I decided to act on the idea and bring it to life. Along the way people have asked, do you think it will make it big? or, are you going to earn money from it?...
