About Me

I'm a web developer living in NYC that enjoys a fun mix of programming, golf, & fitness. I especially love playing around with JavaScript & PHP and building cool stuff with it, and am always tinkering with my swing and fitness regimen's to get better. Plus I love helping people with their ideas "for an app" or "website" and find ways to rapidly develop prototypes that can grow into more. I believe that just as in golf where no 2 shots are the same, there are no 2 projects that are exactly the same. This gives me a better perspective in getting to understand the value of the product and the mindset of the end user, and engineer a best fit solution over a cookie cutter template. I love chatting and learning, so Contact me to discuss a project or just to have a fun discussion!

    Built By Larry

    Freelance Web Developer

    2016 - Present

    I help startups and agencies bring their products to market, gain traction, and hit their next milestone, whether it be fundraising or revenue. Unlike other developers, I have product management and founder experience as well as knowledge of the entire stack from frontend to backend to cloud infrastructure, which helps ensure what I build meets your business goals. Rather than hiding behind a curtain, I enjoy engaging with my clients and making sure their needs are discussed and met upfront so we're always on the same page.

    Eat In Chef

    Co-Founder | CTO

    2014 - 2016

    I co-founded Eat In Chef with my partner in order to bring personal chefs and food lovers together and create experiences that would help develop social relationships and lead to a better quality of life. I developed the platform from scratch using modern technologies such as Laravel, ReactJS, & ES6. and engineered a custom matching algorithm that allowed food lovers to view how well they matched with Chefs.

    Bond

    Web Developer

    2014 - 2015

    I worked as a web developer at Bond to create digital tools that allowed easier and more thoughtful communication, primarly in the form of handwritten notes that were written by robots. I primarily worked with our consumer facing site and internal business web products using Laravel, Backbone, heavy amounts of custom JavaScript, Gulp, Browserify, and Babelify.

  • 2011

    Resolute Digital

    Web Developer

    2011 - 2014

    I worked my way from junior web developer to a full stack developer at Resolute working on multiple projects ranging from large magazine and social media sites, ecommerce sites, and contest sites to custom finance and analytics tools, mobile payment apps, and custom API's for scavenger hunt apps.
