Since 2013 I've been working as a full-stack web developer on an agile product team to maintain and build out new features for mashable.com, a media site with over 45 million monthly unique visitors. Besides developing on the main website, I've also worked on adding more bells and whistles to our super sleek CMS, which the editorial team uses to bring you only the freshest of #viral #content.
TECH: Ruby on Rails, Backbone.js, React/Redux
GOOD Magazine was my first real employer out of college, and it was pretty much the best gig I could have hoped for as a new CS grad. I joined the team during their transition from a web magazine to a socially-impactful social network (before they transitioned back to a web magazine), and helped create and develop web applications for them as a junior software engineer.
TECH: Ruby on Rails, Backbone.js
While I was a wee comp-sci student I worked on the online marketing team at Campus Events Commission, a student-run organization which brought awesome screenings, concerts and speaker events to UCLA. I built their main events site and various minisites for events like the Shorttakes Film Festival and Bruin Bash. To this day CEC remains the most high-perk gig I've ever held (no shade to GOOD or Mashable but they didn't give me front-row at Kendrick or a chance to meet Betty White).
TECH: HTML5, CSS3, PHP
The previous iteration of this site was a very whimsical portfolio I built during my senior year at UCLA for my Design & Media Arts final project. I'm embarrassed of most of the work I had on there now, but it served me well for over 6 years.
TECH: HTML5, CSS3, jQuery
This was a redesigned version of my folio that I abandoned when it was at 90% completion. I can't really figure out why I never deemed it launch-worthy, but I'm glad it gets to be of use now, as a slot in the 'work' section of the portfolio I ended up using.
