This site helps voters keep
track of their Democratic candidates and how they are
voting. Featuring a responsive D3-based map
where users can find out the scores of their local
congresspeople. The site is built from PHP/JS on top
of Wordpress core. The scores are updated monthly and
fed into a MySQL database for map and data plotting.
The Primary Colors backend is all custom built and
becoming more modular with each release. My next goal
is to build in more functionality with creating dynamic
maps and graphs.
If You Make It
If You Make It is a music website that I founded back in
2006. Since it's inception the site has strived to feature
artist's that somehow escaped the spotlight. I regularly
post free music, hilarious comics and articles by amazing
artists. IYMI is also home to widely popular Pink Couch
Sessions, one of the internets first acoustic video
The site features a custom back and front-end system run
on a combination of PHP, MySQL, and jQuery. The entire
front-end is template driven for easy maintenance and
cleanliness of code. The sites colors and design are an homage
to the color scheme I use with Sublime Test 2; Monokai Soda.
IYMI’s monthly visits were once over 60,000.
All hail ZURB and their wonderful Foundation Framework. The client
needed their flash-only site updated to allow clients view
their recent work on all devices.
To do this, I hooked into their image backend and used
SlideShowPro's API to pull the images from each album.I
quickly and cleanly gave Lume a fresh start without losing
the design aesthetic of their original site.
Utilizing PHP templating and jQuery slideshows, I was
able to create a lean mobile-friendly site, in half the
time it usually takes.
Greene Hill Food Co-op
Clinton Hill's food cooperative needed a new website
that was mobile friendly and that users could easy navigate
and become members. Their old site had a glut of
information but with no real structure or navigation.
Focusing on responsivity, I designed a layout that could
easily stack on mobile devices but also provide desktop
users with an intuitive feel and look. Multiple
administrators with different technical backgrounds use
this backend so it was formatted with usability in
The entire site is built on a Wordpress backend and
fully responsive using media queries.
Built on a Wordpress background with a custom Flash MP3
player, Refiltered brings together the best in free music.
The site features a distinct and easy to use update system
that allows labels to add their own albums and artists. The
goal of Refiltered was to help labels catalog and label
their releases. I also wanted to give users the ability to
subscribe to labels via Wordpress' RSS.
The Flash player uses PHP generated RSS files to
populate itself on demand.
Pink Couch Sessions
I started the Pink Couch Sessions at a time when live
music sessions were hard to come by in 2006. As a testament
to my love of music (and inspired by La Blogotheque) I set
up a small studio in my apartment where I ended up
recording over 150 bands. The top 3 videos each have each
received over 100k views on YouTube.
I used an array of equipment and audio/visual tools.
This band (that I was in!) needed a website that was
also mobile friendly to keep track of tour dates, music
releases, promotions and more. The site’s overall design is
replicated on the band's Tumblr, as well.
Utilizing Zurb's Foundation framework and a custom made
template, I was able to have a rapid development cycle. The
webstore ties into PayPal and Google Wallet using a heavily
patched PlumJS system.

In the last 10 years I've been on multiple tours across
the US and throughout Europe. I've recorded 4 LPs and 10
EPs, most which have been released on both vinyl and digitally.
The records have been on a multitude of labels including
Don Giovanni, Salinas and Plan-It-X Records.
