My main squeeze for the past couple of years. The development team (i.e. people actually writing code) has varied from 2 to 4 people over time. Some of my major contributions include writing the REST API (twice; once in PHP, then again in Python), most of the mongoengine models, the authentication system, and a comprehensive test suite. Plus whatever else needed to be done.

Legal Ipsum

A silly little toy I threw together on a lark.  For those times when you need some legal-sounding gibberish but don't have the budget to hire a lawyer at $400/hr.  A good example of an MVP, for extremely small values of M.

Harlem Yacht Club

A small website I maintain for the Harlem Yacht Club, of which I am a member.  Nothing terribliy exciting here.  A mostly static collection of pages built with django-cms.  In case it wasn't obvious from this site, graphic design is not my strong point.  The only thing more dangerous than a software guy with a screwdriver is a back-end server guy doing layout and writing CSS.
