Application Development

  • Wish Stealer

    I was given the task of creating a framework for an interactive app version of the book Wish Stealer: A Dangerously Uncommon Tale by Barbara Kolberg. My specific role was to create a system that could display a realistic simulation of pages turning while managing around 170 high-res pages, including interactive animations.

    Wish Stealer: A Dangerously Uncommon Tale was released last August on the iTunes Marketplace.

  • Entrepreneur Magazine

    I began consulting for Entrepreneur Magazine on a project called Ask Entrepreneur, which required the development of a system that would allow a complex process of editing and question answering to occur in a LAMP environment. This application would then synchronize with the web database server, which ran ASP.NET/SQL. The project continued with the development of Women’s Entrepreneur, a website devoted to women in entrepreneurial business. The site required a massive array of individual blogs, each templated, stylized, and search engine optimized, to be administrated from a centralized location. This technology was then extended to become the Entrepreneur Blog Network.

  • USC School of Medicine

    The offices of auditing and compliance needed a massive update to their organization’s database monitoring HIPAA regulations within thousands of USC-related medical offices. Over a year of development resulted in an application that drives the day-to-day usage and tracking of tens of thousands of medical providers. The application itself runs in a LAMP environment, and automates the process of monitoring a physician’s office and their need for periodic compliance testing. With a host of custom reporting features, automated email templates, and numerous levels of administrative access and automated daily routines, this project is undoubtedly one of my favorite achievements. I was responsible for the development and design from start to finish, and have led multiple classes at USC to train users on the various administrative tasks of the system.

    Columbia University’s Teacher’s College requested a complete overhaul to their print and online marketing campaign, and I was given the task of automating their data mining process. A robust Variable Data Publishing system was created, using LAMP as a framework, to increase 1-on-1 communications with prospective students while also vastly cutting down on the cost of printing redundant and unnecessary print materials.
