Nov. 2012 - Mar. 2013

After reinvigorating my interest in personal finance I wanted to create a set of simple tools to help put people's spending habits in perspective. The primary savings calculator is percentage-based and tiered toward different income levels, along with a special tier for high volume savers.

While working for CSNW, I integrated the final stages of their e-commerce site redesign and launch. With a product catalog of over 100,000 items, product data needed to be loaded dynamically from local sources or third-party vendors. In addition, I developed multiple back-end administration tools to aid management in controlling content easily and efficiently.
