☎️ Say Hello
Team Lead, No-Code Infrastructure @On Deck
On Deck - November 2020 - Present
One of the first full-time engineers at On Deck. I lead the team that makes it easy for everyone at On Deck to build reliably with no-code at scale.
My work at On Deck is split between code, no-code, and managing the team. Our tech stack is Next.js + Prisma with a Node.js API. My no-code work is mostly with Retool, Integromat, Zapier, and Airtable. I also manage the Enterprise Slack that hosts all 8000+ On Deck fellows. I have spent way too much time working on and around the Slack API.
Our ecosystem is an interwoven web of programs, each one designed to strengthen the others. Everything we do stems from our obsession with creating the strongest ecosystem for ambitious people to come and change the world. Each program we launch creates strong flywheels that make the whole greater than the sum of its parts.

Technical co-founder with Sharath Kuruganty. I built the entire product in Next.js with a Feathers.js API. Currently at $2k MRR.

Liist helps you turn your Google Spreadsheet into a listing site. Launching requires no code and takes a few minutes. After that, updating your listings is as easy as editing your spreadsheet.
Accessible Audio Maps Application
Aquil.io – 2020
Built the React frontend for a research project that allowed businesses to create audio-enabled maps for visually impaired users and embed them on their own websites.
The maps could have multiple GeoJSON layers that would play sounds when you collided with objects or got near to them.
Pharmaceutical Drug Launch Platform
Aquil.io – 2020
Responsible for architecting and developing a platform to track the multi-year process of taking a pharmaceutical drug to market.
The frontend was built in React and utilized React hooks heavily. The dashboard rendered a directed graph using SigmaJS with bindings to React that updated in real-time in response to WebSocket events.
Hybrid PWA for booking Movers
Aquil.io – 2019
Developed a PWA using GatsbyJS and Apollo that allowed users to arrange local and cross-country moves between houses.
Half of the site was a static marketing site that pulled its content from a CMS. The other half was a dynamic application that walked the user through a series of steps to determine a price and date for the move.
The multi-step wizard allowed deep linking to any step, saved progress in localStorage, and involved complex async validations that changed the step a user was taken to next.
Document Collaboration Platform
Aquil.io – 2018-2019
Responsible for architecting and developing a secure document collaboration platform for a pharmaceutical company.
The frontend was built in React with deep integration with Box UI Elements. We were one of the first projects to use Box's OpenWith feature and routinely helped the Box team debug issues.
The API was built in FeathersJS and used Auth0 for authentication. The API had to communicate with Box to store and update files. RabbitMQ was used to offload batch processing.
Apple Online Store
Apple via Bitovi – 2013-2015
As a consultant with deep knowledge of CanJS, I was responsible for guiding the technical design and training the other engineering teams. Over a period of a year, we fully migrated the entire store. The code I designed and wrote is still in use today! So if you've bought anything from Apple online in the last 7 years, you have used my code.
