When asked
what I do for a living
my parents have come up with probably
the best description of me:
"He's a professional nerd."

Atlas Wearables
Atlas Wearables

I'm currently the software lead at Atlas Wearables. My direct responsibilities include developing and maintaining the Atlas API, website, apps and server cluster. I also try to keep my fingers in product design, firmware, algorithm development, advertising, and photo/video stuffs.

The Bluetooth Candle
The Bluetooth Candle

This is a side project I have been working on with the help of Mike, Russ and Denis. I've always been a tinkerer and feel like this was an awesome way to put my "Full Stack" skills to the test.

Adriana and I got married, so why would I not personally design, draw, develop and code our wedding website?

FindMeNoms
FindMeNoms

FindMeNoms is an easy way to "find tasty food around you wherever you are". This is a side project that was born out of my need for an app/website that would remember all of the tasty places that I have eaten at, or would recommend to someone, or have been recommended to me. Basically, Yelp wasn't cutting it, as I'd find myself falling down the rabbit hole of reading one-star reviews and laughing at how crazy people can be instead of actually finding food.

taleas
taleas

In 2009 I took up drawing as an easy way to vent my artistic frustrations (it was either that, poetry or expressive dance). After a while I had a solid little following and decided to publish my work on the internet as a full-fledged webcomic. Taleas is that comic.

AdRevolution
AdRevolution

I met Andrew, Tim, Gerry, Nicole, Nikki, Danielle and a slew of other very interesting and (mostly) intelligent people at AdRevolution. I have formed really good friendships with a lot of the people I worked with there, and consider this the most socially successful startup I have ever worked at.

Moniker Guitars
Moniker Guitars

The idea of build your own guitar online is amazing to me. I've been a guitar player since I was in middle-school and over the years had learned not only how to play the guitar, but also repair and even build them. Moniker Guitars was the perfect fit for my skills, I was able to work on the Custom Guitar Configurator, then go into the workshop and take a break from coding by picking up a guitar build and sanding, polishing, assembling, or setting it up. I also got to be part of our Kickstarter Campaign!

The Map Project
The Map Project

Dana and Samia created The Map Project as a way for wanderlusts to curate and share their travel experiences. I really liked the idea behind this project and the gals that created it are crazy talented (really, check our their portfolios). Plus, I got to hang out with them in Brooklyn for a minute, which was awesome!
