Launched an app
In July of 2020, we were contracted to build an internal application for Biden for President.

It allowed the Biden campaign team as well as key staff and speechwriters to manage, edit, and search transcripts paired with time-synced videos from past events and speeches.

This is an application we were thrilled to have the opportunity to work on, and I was thankful to be given the lead for the full scope of this project.

Launched an API
Developed for Current Products Corp, we launched an API to service both their internal apps and consumer apps.

It allows users to manage their accounts, register new devices and hubs, and create scenes, groups, and schedules for them. For the hardware team, they're able to push new binaries to hubs and devices without needing any user interaction from their admin panel.

It also shipped with an MQTT server to handle sending commands to hubs and devices instantaneously at scale.

Attended WWDC
I was fortunate to be invited to WWDC17 via the developer lottery. I had a wonderful week and was able to meet some great engineers and eat what I still consider to this day the best tacos in the world.
