About Me

I'm an award-winning full-stack developer with over 17 years of experience who specializes in helping media companies grow their audiences by improving cross-platform content delivery.

I believe the web should be fast, open, and accessible to anyone, anywhere.


  • Media Optimization & Processing

    Building scalable systems for near-lossless optimization and processing of images, video, and user-generated content.

  • Rock-Solid Publishing

    Decoupling published content from back-end systems and authoring tools for fast, distributed content delivery.

  • Payment Soloutions

    Developing purchasing platforms on top of Stripe, including one-time purchases, and more robust and flexible subscription billing than Stripe's default offerings.

  • People Magazine
  • Disney
  • Mashable, Inc.
  • The Urban Institute
  • The Image Group
  • Morehead State University
  • Baseball Youth Magazine
  • The Travel Channel


I host a weekly podcast with Jonathan Stark called Terrifying Robot Dog in which we talk about how technology is changing the way we interact with the world.
