Other Projects

Base Template

Base is a starting point for quick, static web design and is built on top of the Gumby Framework grid, and utitlizes both SASS and Compass mixins and functions. It also has support for REM values and other awesome CSS3 tools.

Just clone it, add it to a folder or your new project, then fire compass watch within that directory from Terminal (given that you have Compass installed).

Moving Food

In November 2012, Moving Food took home runner-up in the Angel Hack DC competition, for being an innovative solution to help food truck drivers/owners better manage schedules while utilizing real-time data and social feeds.

Currently, development has halted as we all live busy lives with full-time jobs, but if you are interested in working on this project with my team, email me.

More work can be made available upon request. I want more!
