[09/01/2010] - Sophomore Year Commencing
Time for another academic year! My schedule is full of prerequisites to more exciting classes - but it looks like it'll be a good term nonetheless.
This summer was fantastic. I ended up getting out to Seattle, WA for Tropo's Gnomedex Open Government Hackathon which was great. I helped people use Tropo's already awesome APIs -- and make government data more accessible all at the same time. What's better than that combination?
Even with my challenging school course load, I'm working on several interesting projects and look forward to making them public in the near future. Keep in touch!
[06/01/2010] - Summer in the District
Here's an update on my whereabouts and accomplishments lately. I will be spending this summer in Washington DC primarily as a technical intern at a web strategy firm in Farragut West. I started a week ago and it's going great.
I will be continuing in my capacity as a consultant for Voxeo's Tropo product and am excited to be attending their customer summit in Orlando from June 21-23. Do let me know if you want to meet there or discuss voice/text application development in general.
Don't fret though, I am available for hire to build whatever applications we can dream up! I will continue as a freelance technologist focusing primarily on unified communications application (voice, SMS, IM, and even twitter) development. If you have an idea already or looking for insight on how to integrate new communications technology into your product or service, we should definitely talk.
[01/23/2010] - Welcome
Welcome to my website. It highlights my most recent endeavors, successes, and lessons learned as a student and Ruby/Voice/Web application developer.
Most Recent Community Involvement
My most recent charitable effort was at Crisis-Camp DC in response to the Haitian earthquake tragedy.
With hundreds of other volunteers, I put my technological skills, and time, to work in order to assist first-responders (and ultimately victims) of the natural disaster.
You can see some photos and video of me at the event at my experience photo gallery.
Latest: Making Services Talk and Text
In conjunction with my consulting work with Voxeo on their release of Tropo (cloud telephony), I have been using the product for myself and making mashups of web services' APIs. I'm focusing on charitable organizations and open government initiatives.
Check back here soon for (or email me for a sneak peek of) live demos of my voice-and-IM applications for the NIH's Pillbox Identification web service and my entry to GlobalGiving's innovation contest.
If you or your company/organization is interested in unified communications (traditional telephone, VoIP, IM, SMS text message) applications, let's chat.
