I'm a R&D Imagineer for Walt Disney Imagineering: Research & Development.
I led the Backend Team for the Disney.com Platforms Team, holding various titles including Manager, Software Engineering, Staff Software Engineer, and Senior Software Engineer.
In October 2012, we launched a completely new, built-from-the-ground-up Disney.com. The platform now powers these sites, amongst others:
Before working at Disney proper, I was a developer for TouringPlans.com, the research arm of the Unofficial Guide series of travel books. We built some sweet web and mobile apps for touring theme parks. While I was there, I took up various side projects, including Instaparks.
Before that, I and another guy built CrunchBase, a structured wiki project for TechCrunch. I worked on all their blog properties and infrastructure, and helped organize Startup2Startup, a monthly dinner event for silicon valley geeks, entrepreneurs, and investors.
For two years before that, I was the team captain for the Northern Bites, Bowdoin College's RoboCup 4-Legged League team. In 2007 in Atlanta, we won the RoboCup World Championship. In 2006, we finished tenth. And we met Drew Carey.
