Technical Lead C3 Presents, LLC Austin, TX
November 2017 — April 2020
I leaped at an opportunity to work on mobile apps when the business decided to bring mobile app development in house and apply a similar white label pattern that had proven successful for websites. I architected and built a content management system (CMS) in React and the mobile apps in React Native. The server architecture of the mobile app was also built on AWS. Using Lambda, Cognito, AppSync, DynamoDB, S3, and CloudFront, I built a highly scalable, serverless architecture to handle the application load. This effort was hugely successful as C3 quickly scaled the system to support approximately 40 apps with 900,000 active users.

  • Lead a team of contracted developers to define direction, maintain code quality, and set expectations
  • React, React Native, Apollo, Redux
  • TypeScript, Java, Objective-C
DevOps Engineer and Systems Administrator C3 Presents, LLC Austin, TX
April 2015 — November 2017
After finishing development on the WordPress platform , I pivoted to DevOps and Systems Administration. I worked entirely within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) ecosystem to move C3’s hosting from a single large RackSpace server to a scalable, distributed system using CloudFormation, CloudFront, S3, EC2, RDS, and ELB. Eventually, C3 hosted approximately 40 websites on this architecture capable of handling spiked server loads from hundreds of thousands of users per minute and serving a total 32.7 million users in 2019.

August 2012 — April 2015
During the first phase of my time at C3 Presents, I built a custom white label WordPress platform that enabled the marketing department to easily manage festival data and scale to support dozens of festivals. This platform was integrated with multiple third party services including Shopify, MailChimp, and Spotify. It also contained many custom components and features to fit the festival business. It was crucial to make all of the data easily administrable so that a small number of marketers could manage the content for many festivals.
