Hi! I am a software developer with a sysAdmin background. I like cats, cooking, Trello, and building things both physical and digital. I volunteer time for open source, linux, and bitcoin/cryptocurrency groups. I have moderated bitcoin themed panels, spoken at conferences on the potential for art in crypto, and previously organized one of the oldest and largest bitcoin meetup groups in the world.@travisformayor

Bloom - The Data Driven Flower
Our team explored how Big Data can help improve employee satisfaction. Bloom analyzes collected data from apps like fitbit and social media, and compares it against user defined goals to create a general satisfaction score. An artificial flower then physically displays that score by gradually shifting between full bloom or wilting. This single visual output, matched with zero direct user input outside of setup, was designed with the goal of reducing complexity for the user by instead leveraging Big Data's strengths in collating large sets of already available data.

My First Crypto Wallet
Our team designed a product targeted at first time crypto wallet holders. We based it on similar products created by credit card companies for first time cardholders which are targeted at youths and offer more parental controls. A big concept in cryptocurrency is independence, so our version imagined this user experience as a mentor and mentee relationship, with rewards coming from completing mentor directed goals.
