Projects

Easy VPN Router

I own a business that manufacturers and sells networking equipment with a VPN stack built into the operating system. A companion mobile app makes configuration super easy.

React Simple Markdown Editor

I needed a markdown editor that could be customized, and not require buy-in to a framework. Lots of projects would display rendered markdown, but there was nothing to easily create it, so I built my own.

Peer to Peer Investment Apps

I discovered a niche investment product that had many thousands of investors but no mobile apps. The investment platforms also had open API's. So I created LendingClub Order and Prosper Invest, sharing much of the code base between them. I'll be creating another app in the same industry soon.

Dijkstra Interactive

I made this on a lazy weekend several years ago, it's a fun demonstration of Dijkstra's shortest path algorithm.
