In the winter of 2020 I began coversations about a new software & business project with my business partner Ryan. We are developing a tool for building & maintaing digital communities on the smaller scale. In the process we also hope to establish a worker-user owned platform cooperative. In the spring of 2021 I quit my paying job to start working on it full-time. It is an open source project that can be viewed here.
Ibotta Gift Cards (launched as Pay With Ibotta)
From 2018-01-01 to 2019-08-08
"Pay straight from the Ibotta app and get instant cash back on your entire purchase. It’s quick, easy, and secure." Pay With Ibotta was fully released to the public early in 2019, but the project itself has been under development since January of 2018. Functionally a startup within a startup, the original team of Pay With Ibotta started with one product manager, and one engineer, me writing a Java application. Once a quick proof of concept was finished in February, the team was expanded to two engineers, then doubled again after a few months with a focus on an event driven, microservice oriented architecture. After a year and a half of active development, the feature launched 100% across both Ibotta apps, as well as an in beta in the browser extension. The success of Pay With Ibotta also helped lead to Ibotta closing a series D round of funding, achieving a billion dollar valuation : "https://www.denverpost.com/2019/08/08/mobile-shopping-app-ibotta-denver/"
This website is perhaps my longest, and simultaneously most recent project as of the time of this writing. Originally this website just served a few static HTML pages. Over time it has grown to host most of my professional and amateur work over the last 10 years. As of this most recent iteration, the website is a static site built with the Sveltekit framework & Felt design library.

CABAL: A game of conspiracy and intrigue
From 2012-08-01 to 2012-12-15
CABAL is a turn based game that simulates various scenarios of factions vying with each other for power. The power of a faction is measured by its wealth, its influence on the world, and the public's opinion of it. The underlying nature of CABAL allows for an almost limitless number of scenarios of competition to be devised. The only limit is the imagination of its user base. From the conflict of the French Revolution to modern political campaigns to galactic conquest in the far flung future, CABAL is open ended enough to allow for all these scenarios and more. Play a hot seat game with your friends or take it online for even more cut throat competion.
