I’ve worked for a long time with a close-knit group of guys in a small town just north of Chattanooga, TN. But over the years we’ve all found our own ways to new and exciting opportunities all over the country and now I’m searching for mine. I, along with my young family, am excited to find a new city and company with a team of people who are passionate about their work and take pride in their product. As a family man, I look forward to making a difference, even if only small, in order to make a better world for my daughter. I feel a great way I can do that is to be an example of a diligent worker who looks forward to every day because I get to do what I love most with people I’m proud to work with.

  • MyBryan's goal is to provide a unified portal experience for the students, faculty, and staff of Bryan College. Prior to its implementation, Bryan College used three different sites (and thus codebases) to manage the many facets of faculty, student, and staff needs. It was created to be responsive and usable on mobile devices, as well as on a desktop. It harnesses a custom RESTful API to interface with our central database. We also used several existing libraries/frameworks. These choices allowed us to develop this portal with two developers and a web designer.

    Its features include: Online directory, online resources, parking registration, grades, transcripts, attendance, emergency contact info, news, and much more.

  • Creative Commons pictures are great, but they take extra time to deal with since you need to attribute each picture you use. Finding free pictures that are legal to use and embedding them with attribution should be easier.

    A time saving service for using Creative Commons pictures. Tagline: "Get Pictures. Give Credit."

    Wylio makes it easy to find pictures, re-size them, and embed them on your website. Wylio was developed in conjunction with two other developers and contains many interesting facets. We've chosen to use the frameworks, libraries, and technology that allow for very rapid development. We've made choices that reduce our overhead, while at the same time delivering a great user experience.

  • The Cams API was created to provide a unified, simple, and abstracted way to interface with the CAMS Enterprise Database by Three Rivers Systems. It is a centralized database that provides an end to end way to administer all the different facets of a higher education institution. However, to write custom solutions to interface with it, is a somewhat troublesome experience. That, combined with our older codebases, a new unified portal, and the possibilties of having to interface with third party vendors allowed us to develop a RESTful API system. With that, all of our systems (and third parties) could easily and sanely access and modify data for the school.

    The ServiceStack framework provides an excellent and fast way to provide a RESTful API. We were able to harness our existing C# models within ServiceStack to provide the needed data models.

  • The Apply portal for Bryan College was created to replace the older ASP.NET-based site. It was created to make it as easy and friendly as possible for prospective students to submit their application to Bryan College. Apply was designed to allow students to enter the minimal amount of data needed to complete their application to any of the programs offered by Bryan College. The site was designed so that new programs could be added without having to interfere with other already existing programs. It interfaced with the CAMS Enterprise database via the Object Relational Mapper included with Django. The front-end is powered by jQuery and functions as a single page application. This allows for a very streamlined experience.
