Current Projects

Echoes – a Python library I wrote for accessing the Amazon Echo API. This project was created before Amazon introduced the Alexa skills API.

Shapephiles – an open data project focused on maps and visualization. The goal is to give people a way to collaborate and share interesting geo data. The name is a play on the GIS standard Shapefile format.


Fastbit – an open source data processing library. Fastbit stores data in columns instead of rows making it ideal for analytic workloads. I worked on testing and fixes, primarily in the IBIS client.

Past Projects

Signal Objects – the goal was to build a modern OLAP interface using PHP and Fastbit. The project was fun to work on and a great learning experience, but ultimately it failed to get the traction it needed to succeed.
