Medical Records Database

St. James Infirmary makes use of a custom python web application based on the Django admin interface. Using a custom web application for tracking participant care as opposed to using the cities electronic medical records system allows the organization to further protect it's participants from law enforcement surveillance. The application replicates paper forms that make up a participant chart. My contribution to the application involved upgrading the system to a modern python and Django version, migration from sqlite to MySQL, managing releases and development environments, fixing bugs, and adding features. The organization is planning on migrating the system to OpenEMR.


bellancora.com was a site that facilitated the re-selling of designer wedding dresses. Working closely with the web designer, Derek Durivage of xlcrdesigns.com, using common software development best practices and design patterns, an object oriented database abstraction library was written in php. The classes written for this project model the database schema using a "Data Mapper" or "Integrated Mapper" design pattern to provide a DAO interface, and provides an interface for object creation through factory methods.


morganhowland.com was a portfolio site for Moragn Howland's photography. Morgan is a professional photographer who was looking for a very simple site layout that would allow him to easily update his photo galleries on a website and provide a slick way for users to browse his work. He didn't want a whole lot of bells and whistles.


blomstdesign.com is a portfolio site for Kristen Hanson's floral arrangement company. She came to me looking for a simple site where she could have a small online presence explaining her services, and upload images of her floral arrangements. I told her I would do it in exchange for a plane ticket to San Francisco, then ended up fixing her home network in exchange for lunch. Its nice having a skill you can trade.

Her company never got off the ground, and the live site has been taken down. You can find some screen shots and discussion on the techniques I used below.


Wacypaa.org is a small not for profit organization that I contributed my time to as a technical point of contact, web application developer, and database administrator. While working with them I developed a content management system to support their website and conference registration database.
