Have a look at some of my

projects

Below is a selection of my past work. 


Prototype: Snackable video mobile app

Tagasauris

Design and prototype build of a mobile app focused on video consumption in a "snackable" format. Users are presented with a selection of categorized videos and dropped directly into viewing the most interesting portion of that video (as defined by user actions within the app). This project utilizes a mobile variation of the Hypermedia Video Player. 


Hypermedia Video Player

Tagasauris

The web we're all used is built on hypertext. The linking of webpages (documents) online allows us to fall down the rabbit hole that is the internet and powers the search engines that we know and love today. Search engines hunt for contextual text snippets, helping you find relevant documents. Not so with video... As the internet of text has given way to the socially connected internet of video, search simply hasn't caught up.


The TV Genome

Tagasauris for Disney/ABC

Early-on, Tagasauris built a best-in-class analysis platform for image content — a computer that could look at, and interpret, photos. When we were contacted by Disney's R&D team, they had a question: Could we do the same for video?


Demo: Search within video

Tagasauris

A simple proof of concept focused on demonstrating our ability to search within the context of a video driven by a proprietary computer vision algorithm. We used this work as the basis to create one of the most robust A.I. models for cars, trucks, and other automobiles. After training, our model was capable of identifying any make/model of vehicle produced in the last ~40 years.  


ShopYoutube

Tagasauris

I designed this proof of concept to explore what might happen if we connect the world's largest content library (YouTube) to the world's largest marketplace (Amazon) to surface shoppable moments within any video. Could we turn YouTube into the millennial version of the Home Shopping Network? 

 

I went to Moma and...

The Museum of Modern Art, NYC

What began as an impromptu experiment to see what would happen if MoMA visitors were given an opportunity to share their experiences at the Museum — whatever those might be — was given new life through these experiences designed to live on even after visitors have left the museum.

 

If I can Dream

A joint venture between 19 Entertainment and Hulu

One house in Hollywood. Five people aspiring for fame. Sixty HD cameras, rolling 24/7. All feeding an always-on, virtual-meets-reality experience. If I Can Dream was reality TV, reinvented for a digital-first world.

 

Date night is...

I founded this company and led a small team in creating an application to recommend location-specific, personalized date ideas for couples in established relationships. In spite of the rampant growth of online dating as a means to meet new people, there are few technologies that exist to serve couples who are solidly in the "we" stages of a relationship. 

 

Tomorrow Lab

The American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science

Though relatively unknown in the US, the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel is responsible for some of the most noteworthy scientific breakthroughs of the last half-century. We worked with their US-based philanthropic office to build Tomorrow Lab as a means to make science personal and bring philanthropy to the masses. 

 

imagebrief

Imagebrief is a startup with the goal of disrupting the world of stock photography for both buyers and photographers by building a two-sided marketplace in which photo buyers solicit and license previously unsold images from photographers. I spent 3 months working with the ImageBrief team to redesign nearly every touch-point of their product/application.

 

Slack

Every day, human beings create new Slack teams. These people are not officially tasked with finding new enterprise software in their day-to-day role, but they have a problem that they think Slack can solve. The most successful Slack team creators are able to get several people to create accounts on their team and have a meaningful conversation within the product in the first day or so. 

What issues and missed opportunities exist that hold people back from having meaningful conversation in Slack?

 

Snapchat

When the world’s fastest-growing social platform decides to tackle “content” — how do you open the flood gates to include something for everyone while still maintaining a high caliber of content that upholds the standards you’ve defined for your brand?
