My Stuff

Blurt

2018

Blurt helps you write. Use it to smartly capture your thoughts and improve your writing.

Interviews with entrepreneurs and creatives sharing the importance of writing to their craft.

A tool for brain health and mental well-being.

Edit your tweets, sort of. Covfefe is a Chrome web extension that let's you edit and undo your tweets.

Typing in virtual reality is tough when you can't see your hands or keyboard. So how do you do it?

The VBoard was a quick exploration into seeing what it would take to bring the traditional keyboard into VR using a custom 3D printed mount, a Leap Motion and Vive Tracker all mounted on the physical keyboard and recreating an exact replica 3D model of the keyboard.

Epic

2017

Epic lets you create titled collections of photos and videos that never disappear—"epics". It's like Snapchat and Instagram stories except they're permanent and you can have multiple. iOS app collaboration with Bryan Sleiter.

Poof

2016

Upload a file. Share its link. Once accessed, it's gone.

BlindWrite is a writing tool to help jumpstart writing by blurring what you type as you write so you can get your ideas out without self-editing them.

Pokki

2012

Pokki is a free extension I helped build at SweetLabs, Inc. that provides a mobile app-like interface for Windows-based computers. Has generated $60MM+ in revenue and grown to 60MM+ users worldwide enabling SweetLabs to attain partnerships with the world’s top mobile and PC device manufacturers (Lenovo, Huawei, Acer, HP, and Toshiba).

Buskly

2011

Buskly is an online stage for talented people to broadcast and connect with their audience in realtime. I pitched the idea at Startup Weekend San Diego where it went on to win second place.

Video chronicling my first prototype of a vibrotactile feedback sensing system I call Touchsee. Touchsee utilizes Micrsoft's Kinect, an Arduino, and Daniel Shiffman's Kinect library for Processing. The aim of a VFSS is to enhance an agent's perception of body schema in tool use where the agent's own senses are occluded by use of the tool itself.
