Cycling equipment maintenance tool
Cycling equipment manufacturers prescribe maintenance intervals in terms of hours of use. The popular training and exercise tracking app Strava only tracks the distance a unit has been used. This app allows a user to grant access to their Strava account and to track various pieces of equipment by time spent and reset the maintenance clock when a tune up has been performed.
Glycogen & Fat Usage Calculators
These are on device data fields for Garmin bike computers. A user inputs their metabolic burn rate and corresponding wattage data from a lactate and metabolic cart lab test. Then, during a ride, the app uses wattage inputs from a power meter to calculate the amount of glycogen or fat being used by the athlete. By tracking glycogen use the athlete can avoid running out of fuel during training or a race and know how much they need to consume after for recovery. Available on the Garmin IQ app store.

Tip Toeing into Neural Nets
My first foray into Machine Learning. Still at the stage of swimming in this space and simply observing and letting the ideas and knowledge marinate.
Tech Used: Python, Google Cloud Platform, Jupyter Notebook
Helping get PPE to those that needed it most
In the early days of the pandemic there was a massive shortage of personal protective equipment. A group of friends banded together to build a site to rapidly crowd source and deliver to hospitals these necessary items. I built a twitter DM tool that performed automated outreach to journalists in an effort to get knowledge of the site and/or get articles written about it. Highlight: Mark Ruffalo retweeted us to 7 million+ followers.

Communicating with your elected officials can be intimidating, many constituents aren't ever sure where to begin when it comes to chatting with their councilors. These tools help to lower the start hurdle burden by seeding talking points into pre-populated emails and text messages to local elected officials
