This is a collection of freelance, personal projects, and professional work that I have accomplished throughout my career. Professional projects were often worked on in teams of developers, designers, and business managers who all deserve credit for their work as well.

Public Database of 19th Century Mormon Pioneers (2015)
HTML5, Node.js, SCSS, Browserify, Handlebars
With the dual goals of search engine optimization and client side performance, this isomorphic web application is rendered on a server using Node.js and Handlebars, while subsequent requests are handled and rendered by the clients browser. With sub-second rendering, and milliseconds time-to-first-byte, I’m proud that this application is blazing fast (and usable too!). On this project, I served as lead-front end developer, making architecture decisions, leading code reviews, and doing regular pair programming with the other developers.
