Hello, call me KD

I am a project manager who can also create web applications.

Check out some of my work and feel free to get in touch.


About

Your digital projects deserve to be made whole - visual, compelling, and useful.

As a project manager and web developer with years of experience in complex multimedia projects, interdisciplinary task management, and a technology-first approach - I am eager to take your concepts from the whiteboard to the world wide web.

Originally from Portland, Oregon, I've spent the last decade criss-crossing the continent from New York City to Los Angeles to Mexico City, learning the entertainment industry, large scale event production, good design practice, and modern computer programming.

Art, justice, movies, journalism, and the future are all things we can talk about. 🚀🎷🌎

Brio Mobile

An anti-doldrum motivator - a mobile app that will intake new users and suggest actionable goals and remove roadblocks that can get in the way of ever starting good habits. Using various API's to integrate with the apps you already love like Spotify, the app combines an array of microservices into a gamified cycle of inventive to-do's and habit tracking. ‘Brio’ was developed during an 8 week full time agile internship at EyeCue Lab and was built with React Native, Node.js, Redux Saga, Expo, and Styled Components.

dotGain

dotGain aims to be a reliable place to gather and view art that has been made around social justice movements and then provide those who wish to support those artists and independent print shops with their business rather than FedEx or other corporate outlets. Bootstrapped with Gatsby and created to take advantage of a content mesh using microservices from various APIs and GraphQL to show a number of concepts including agile development, modern content management, and eCommerce solutions.
