Side Projects

Code

I actively write code for several side projects.

This website is a Gatsby site with MDX (Markdown + React) for templating and components. I deploy it to an S3 bucket on AWS using GitHub Actions, with CloudFront as my CDN.

I'm currently building a recommendation engine for software packages. I've been working on it since January 2020 with three teammates from my capstone project at the Harvard Extension School. Package Picker is hosted on AWS ECS using Docker containers, we use GitHub Actions as our CI/CD, Terraform to provision our infrastructure, Django as the web application framework, and Elasticsearch as our recommendation engine.

In 2016, I built Run Budget, a progressive training tool for runners. I'd just bought an Apple Watch and wanted to gain some experience with Switch and watchOS. It went through a few incarnations, ranging from an automatic route generator to a training log that helped you increase mileage safely.
