Zimride is a growing, innovative carpooling service. I took a year off from my undergraduate time at Brown University
to take a full-time application developer position at Zimride. I started at Zimride living and developing out of an apartment
in Palo Alto. The company has since grown, continued to innovate, and moved to a schnazzy office in San Francisco.
At Zimride, I helped to build the initial site, working collaboratively in a team of 3 developers. We all cut up pages,
I was one of the original developers at Fanium, a Twitter-based sports startup. I helped to architecture the Fanium system,
building it out on a team of three developers. Collaborating with a RISD graduate, we designed intuitive user experiences
and playful designs.

LEARNING TO PLAY
Show: Granoff Center for the Creative Arts Opening Show
Media: Digital/Musical Installation
Statement: Learning to Play interrogates the idea of emergent
intelligence by playing music along with whoever plays the keyboard.
As the person plays Learning to Play becomes better. By basing the
melody off of the unique actions taken by the person, Learning to Play
creates a unique musical intelligence with each interaction.

HANGING BEER MUSIC
Media: Musical Sculpture
Statement: Hanging Beer Music is an exploration of the music in our everyday
lives. Constructed from materials scavenged from my dormitory while at Brown,
the sculpture consists of a wooden structure as tall as a person, a flanged
chicken wire and kabob stick player, beer bottles with variable amounts of water
hanging, and a cannibalized fan to drive it all.
