I am a designer currently living in Bushwick, Brooklyn. My main project is Campusvine, a web app that enables students to plan and budget events. My other project is Nooklyn, the simplest way to find an apartment or roommate in Brooklyn.
A collection of apps for higher education.
I spent a lot of time (probably too much) in college in the student government. That's where I met Alex. The project was Allocate, a Rails web app that enabled student clubs to send check requests to the student government.
As we were leaving college, we co-founded Heuretix to continue building software for higher ed. We rewrote Allocate from scratch and made it a component of Campusvine.
Campusvine gives students tools to plan, budget and promote their events on a college campus.
The easiest way to find an apartment in Brooklyn.
When we were looking for an office/apartment for Heuretix in Brooklyn, Nooklyn found us a great loft right off of the Jefferson Street L stop. In late 2012, they were looking for someone to work on their website. I thought it would be neat side project and conscripted David to help me get started. We hated their old website, so we rewrote it in Rails over a couple months and spent another few months refining it.
These days, I work on Nooklyn by myself since David is working on other projects. My plans for Nooklyn this year is to enable people to use Nooklyn to find potential roommates for an apartment and discover local businesses.
A simple way to keep track of things.
Kremlin is a personal project to I use to track hours, links and people for my freelance work. I am also using Kremlin to build out a simple CSS Framework that I plan to use on all future web projects.
