I'm a Chicago-based software & electronics engineer. After a dozen years designing embedded electronics, I also consult with businesses on digital products, whether it's apps and tools they use to improve the way they operate, or creating customer-facing products and experiences that delight. Leading client technical teams through product architecture phases and application development, primarily using Laravel/Angular/React.Let's Talk!

Paying for goods and services with the power of your palm.
Fintech startup Keyo wants to change the way we pay. Linking a credit/debit card to a Keyo account (think Venmo or Paypal), users can register their unique palm-data at any participating location, and never again need to carry a wallet. With no smartphones required, you wave your palm over Keyo's point-of-sale terminal, are securely identified within a couple seconds and have finished your transaction far quicker than any smartphone app ever could, all while knowing that your personal and financial data is vastly more secure than with a standard fingerprint.
The project started with deep dives into data-architecture and API planning for the POS terminals and user-dashboard app. A Laravel backend and standard frontend tools were used to build out the respective pieces, a unique, multi-step, save-your-progress registration-flow, and internal-use apps for admins and merchants, along with the two-way, secure API used by the POS terminal itself.
