Created an Unofficial Bay News 9 mobile app using PhoneGap 1.8 for IOS and Android that aggregates news articles from Bay News 9 via RSS and YQL. Web services for image compression were used to improve mobile performance. This unofficial app was a big success with a combined 40k total downloads, and the source code was purchased a year later from Brighthouse Networks. They had different business requirements and data interfaces, and ended up creating their own versions in the end.

Participated in Hillsborough Counties’ first Hackathon on a team with two co-workers from SOE Software. We created a mobile web application that aggregates location data onto a multi layered Google Map to display all government services for potential home buyers using geo location.
