Hi, I'm Marc.
I help ship and scale web applications.

I'm a freelance full-stack developer in Seattle. These days, I tend to work with startups, though I have worked with organizations of many different shapes and sizes, including once for NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab.

My experience includes building modern Javascript user interfaces as well as scalable backends in Python. I have also done a fair share of data engineering building out pipelines for analytics and image processing.

I particularly like work where I can bring my Mechanical Engineering background to bear, "talking the talk" with other types of engineers to deliver products, research, and process improvements.

Projects in environment and energy are some of my favorites. I have significant technical experience in energy systems (energy efficiency, biomass combustion, fluid simulation).

I offer my services on a contract basis from my ergonomic home office.

Here is a short "best ofs" timeline:

2016
built product and infrastructure for an energy analytics startup, playing an instrumental role in reaching milestones for a large seed round
2015
scaled an energy IoT startup from scratch to 3M requests / day
2014
transformed a drone startup's image processing shell scripts into an intuitive UI
2013
stealth-mode product development for a startup client that led to an angel round
2012
made it on Vietnamese television for my work in clean energy
2009
wrote a web app to win the Microsoft Imagine Cup
2008
ACM ICPC World Finalist

I'm always interested in hearing about new challenges. Please get in touch to discuss more about working together.
