Hello! My name is Stephen, I live in Littleton, Colorado and currently work full-time as Data Visualization
on the business intelligence team with Denver travel startup FareHarbor. I was born in France, grew up in
Washington DC, moved to Colorado in 2007, and I've
been building websites since I moved from Boulder to Denver in 2011. Previously working in sales for nearly
a decade, I've
been exposed to number of industries, including real-estate, education, and fitness. While the original
focus of this portfolio site was to showcase my work as a freelance web designer/developer from around 2012
- 2018, after completing
the Full Stack Web Developer program through University of Denver I've gone full time, and begun to shift my
focuse towards Data Visualization,
Analytics, and on the track to becoming a full-stack developer and data scientist.
Throughout 2020 I'll be back at DU for the Data Visualization and Analytics program to deepen my skills in the back-end and learn more tricks with Python, AI, and Machine Learning. While I started out building websites for side ventures and helping out friends, artists, musicians, and yoga & fitness instructors as you will see in my portfolio, I continue to support non-profits and local businesses in the Denver Metro area with organizing and wrangling data. I won't be taking on any new private clients until my cohort at DU wraps up this fall, but feel free to Contact Me with questions or to setup a consultation.
Since completing my full stack developer training with University of Denver, I have moved on to working full time in the business. I now do most front-end work in React, and while I occasionally use bootstrap or material UI I often prefer building my own user interface from scratch with CSS or CSS-in-JS. I've worked with a lot of 'live data' to query a database (usually PostgreSQL), and run a function to fetch the latest dataset on a time interval to keep multiple dashboards running around the clock. I've also worked with a lot of maps, from Mapbox and the Uber Visualization suite, as well as GeoJSON and TopoJSON processng with D3.js.

Have you ever had a bad experience with an app and thought to yourself "I can build a
better app than this!" You can! At least, I can, and did!
While it's now easier than ever to build your own website using a pre-built template, if you want something
custom, bespoke, and made especiallyfor you without
spending thousands of dollars, you may need some help learning the ropes! Maybe you're like me and want to
learn on your own? Or have an idea for the next disruptive
app that's going to change the world? Contact me and let's talk about it!
I've made many stops along the way to becoming a developer and data analyst. I caught the tail-end of the real estate boom in 2006 and worked as mortgage broker in DC before moving West, and have worked in Academic Recruiting and as a French speaking account Manager for Crocs Footwear in Boulder. When the economy was at a low in 2011 I shifted gears and started working with non-profit organizations, and started teaching youth and adults. I taught languages (French, English), tutored High School students, and eventually becoming a yoga teacher, building websites all the while. Contact me for more info or to download my full resume.
Using Tableau and the Microsoft Bing COVID-Tracker Dataset I've put together several data visualizations and maps to track the spread of Covid-19 in the USA as well as globally. While the data set is updated nightly, these dashboards (on Tableau's public servers) are updated manually while I work on building a Web Connecter to automate the data updates. The tabs at the top of the visualizations let you navigate each one, and the first storyboard explains the objectives, data source, and offers a more detailed Analysis.

You can also toggle which ones are visible using the links below. Note that some marked as 'FareHarbor' are secure production web applications - only screenshots are included, but sensitive data is blurred out. Feel free to contact me for code samples.
For posterity, you can see images of some of the websites I built as a freelancer from 2011 - 2017(ish). These are images only as these sites are no longer active.
