I’ve worked on a few different teams and projects (the majority of which are written in Go) at DigitalOcean.


In 2016, I was a member of the Tow-Kight Entrepreneurial Journalism Fellowship. I worked on and presented Fibbit, a veterinary search and health tool for pets, with pricing information for various vaccines, exams, and procedures. I pitched Fibbit at the conclusion of the fellowship. The Fibbit prototype was a simple Node.js application leveraging mapbox.js.


From 2015 to 2016, I worked on Perooz, a journalism tool consisting of a website and an annotation tool for news websites. My cofounder and I pitched at various events and to several accelerators but ultimately elected to stop working on the project and release it. The various repos can be found here and here. I even wrote a postmortem of sorts on it.


I started taking photos with a used Sony A5100 mirrorless a year ago and finally decided to create a portfolio and start blogging here.
