Title: Creative Director, Product Designer, Front-end Developer

In 2012 I moved from Tampa, FL to Cambridge, Mass. to join the Harvard-based startup CommonPlace. Founded by Peter Davis and Max Novendstern, who at the time were students, it was conceived with the intentions of being a more civic-minded community bulletin board. A place for neighbors to connect, share, and help one another based on their professor Robert Putnam's views on 'social capital'.

As of 2018, it is an open source web platform built on React and Ruby on Rails, running on the sweat of volunteer work and general love for improving community engagement :)
