About Tom

I'm into my motorcycle, playing board/video games, music, movies, podcasts, stand up comedy, EDM, and vintage electronics. Rarely, I add things to I live in Brooklyn, NY.


From ten thousand feet: I've been making websites and web apps for about 10 years. I enjoy building exciting visual experiences, both on the web and via novel displays (projection, arduino controlled LED arrays, & billboards so far).

Currently: I'm a Software Engineer at eBay. I primarily work on the desktop and mobile homepages. I'm typically writing JS in Node with Marko, a reactive, isomorphic Javascript UI framework.

2014 to 2016: I was a principal member and senior developer at PHHHOTO (now HYPNOCAM), a booth and social media app invented by the HYPERHYPER crew. I wore a lot of hats but mostly did backend work in Ruby on Rails, Node, a wee bit of Go, and a healthy dose of devops on AWS mixed in.

2012 to 2014: Full stack development for HYPERHYPER. There's far too many projects to list here, but some of my highlights are below:

2008 to 2012: Bundle (now Capital One Labs), Finetune (a Pandora competitor), digital agencies such as Razorfish, and as a mobile web developer at MLB Advanced Media.

I earned my BA in Computer Science at Boston University.
