PublikDemand allows consumers to post complaints about big companies. We aggregate and organize these complaints by topic and company. Individual complaints are turned into qualified leads for competitors.
I joined PublikDemand in early 2012 as a co-founder and product designer. PublikDemand went through the 500 Startups Summer 2012 accelerator program. During the three months of the program I designed the PublikDemand interface, wrote the frontend code, and crafted the logo and color scheme.
Infochimps is a big data marketplace and infrastructure provider. As the Director of User Experience, I led a revision of the web interface for their data marketplace product, improving the site experience for developers looking to incorporate data into their projects.
Infochimps acquired my previous company, Keepstream, in September 2011. It was Keepstream's first (and only!) TechCrunch post.
Keepstream was a real-time curation tool for organizing social media content. On Keepstream, users collected social media statuses from their Twitter and Facebook streams and placed them into permanent topic collections. These topic collections could then be embedded on a website or blog.
Keepstream evolved from our previous product during our time in the 2010 Capital Factory accelerator program in Austin, Texas. I led the design and frontend efforts on the entire Keepstream application, including a Keepstream Reports beta feature.
