Lead Developer, StickyAlbums

StickyAlbums helps photographers book more clients by providing them with intuitive, WYSIWYG software to create mobile photo albums, in turn providing them with powerful marketing tools to drive sharing and engagement, resulting in increased referrals and sales and a great end product for their customers.

Time Inc. Redesign

In 2013-2014, I teamed up with the talented designers and developers at Global Moxie to take part in the redesign of the Time Inc corporate site, where I took on the role of JavaScript developer. The media-rich site showcases Time's extensive offerings across an array of platforms and media streams around the globe.

The Image Group

Providing professional photography services for their cruise line partners, I teamed up with Image to develop and implement their digital rights management system for managing shipboard and post-cruise purchases of photo content on CDs and other digital offerings.
