Howdy! I'm a software developer at GitHub, working out of Nashville, Tennessee. I love black tea and electropop, puns and hot chicken. When I'm not writing code, I'm playing video games like Overwatch, Skyrim, and Civilization VI. I sometimes blog about video games and tech.

Some of the features I've worked on in my time at GitHub include pinned repositories, private graph contributions, user profile timelines, and repository topics.

Projects

Overwatch Counter Picker web app December 2016

In Blizzard’s game Overwatch, the heroes that people pick on your team and on the enemy team can really affect how effective you are playing a given hero. This is a web app that lets you upload a screenshot you take in-game that shows who is on each team. The app uses OpenCV to determine which heroes are present on which team, then determines the best hero for you to play based on that composition.

GitHub Notifications Snoozer desktop app July 2016

This is a desktop app written in Electron that lets you manage issues and pull requests on GitHub. You can define filters for which issues/PRs you’re interested in, such as those that are still open and mention you, and then view a list of the ones that match. It offers a flow akin to the Mailbox app where you can dismiss an issue/PR for a day before it resurfaces in the app, ignore it forever, or archive it until there is new activity in that thread. The goal is to let you ignore email and web notifications from GitHub and instead triage issues and PRs entirely in the app.

HuxleyFM desktop app May 2016

This is a desktop application for Windows, OS X, and Linux, built using Electron. It lets you play SomaFM Internet radio stations as well as Chromecast them to either a regular Chromecast or a Chromecast Audio. It displays desktop notifications when the song changes. It shows a list of the recent tracks that have played on the current station, as well as the listener count and DJ name. Includes both a dark and a light theme.

Steam Palettes web app May 2016

A rewrite of my old Steamy Screenshots project, this is a React web app that lets you get color palettes from your Steam video game screenshots.

You can create color palettes on COLOURlovers from each screenshot.

Steamfit web app December 2015

Correlate your Steam activity with your Fitbit activity. Look at your last two weeks’ worth of activity on both Steam and Fitbit, including which games you’ve played for how long and how many steps you’ve taken. If you didn’t meet your personal Fitbit step goal for the two weeks and you played games on Steam, it chastises you for not walking enough.

BlicblockJS web game September 2014

A JavaScript implementation of the game Blicblock from The Sims 4. This tries to recreate the same look and feel of the game that your Sims play.
