Things I've worked on

This is a small sample of the projects I’ve been involved in and the part I played in bringing them to life.

Recent projects

  • A document management system for the Australian legal profession that’s helping to bring courtrooms into the digital age. Barristers and their legal teams can annotate and share briefs, and perform full-text searches on their uploaded documents through the use of a custom solution that utilises the Tesseract OCR engine, Elasticsearch, and PDFTron Webviewer.

  • A B2B marketplace for businesses in Australia and New Zealand. A Rails backend drives a web frontend to facilitate direct sales, and provides an API for an iOS app that enables reps to place orders from the field.

  • A marketplace for the hospitality industry in Australia that enables businesses to connect with industry professionals for short-term (or potentially longer) gigs. The Rails backend provides an API for both iOS and Android applications that enable workers to respond to shift offers from venue managers at a moment’s notice.
