Freelance Projects


Screenslate is a site devoted to finding the best movie screenings in New York City. For the site redesign funded by a Kickstarter campaign, I developed the backend CMS and API. I also managed the deployed application on Heroku and used add-ons such as New Relic, Papertrail, and Scout to tune performance and detect issues.
