Pangaea360 (now Leafcutter) is an all-in-one online app that helps a small business manage itself. (modular JavaScript, jQuery, BackboneJS, Bootstrap)

In the latter I built the display and core functionality for the websites of such clients as Nikon and Pfizer. I helped to build the website for CallBS, an anti-bullying / mental health enterprise, and was responsible for creating the iPhone and Android native mobile app counterparts using Xcode, Eclipse and PhoneGap.
