Selected Projects


Woah- you're here now. sebri.ng is a serverless and responsive portfolio website- fitted with SSL certification and cached at an edge node in a CDN near you. I wanted a place to host various things, and my top priority was to be low maintenance and low cost. It's all hosted on AWS and costs about $1 a month to run. I'm working on some more documentation- so check back shortly for info on how you can have your own (I do, however, call dibs on the name.)

OneRoof: Unified Group Housing

As someone who lived for all of college in houses with 8-10, well, college students, choosing a project to cap off my Informatics degree was simple. Make group housing easier! The solution for that? Much more difficult. My team analyzed the experiences of students in group housing situations and proposed, designed, and implemented a solution. OneRoof- a web and mobile application that allowed residents to create a "house" and add their roommates, then organize task tracking, shopping, and communication. Unfortunately, we never could get any funding to bring it off the group and to group houses around the world, and now it just remains an artifact from a time with more dirty dishes than I care to remember.

Informatics Capstone Project

Wild Wing Studios Information Processing Redesign

Perhaps my favorite project of all time- a group effort to work with a local web development business to evaluate their process for onboarding customers and processing payments. The organization had a stated goal to reduce time and effort in customer acquisition. Myself and a team of great friends worked to review strategic goals and combined employee interviews, market research, and process analysis to propose a new tool and onboarding procedure to reduce high-touch processes early in the customer lifecycle.
