Picture of Caleb.

Hi there!

I'm Caleb.

I'm a Software Engineer, and I enjoy helping people solve problems by coming up with creative solutions. I'm also a freelancer and am always ready for a new adventure.

I love space, traveling, and enjoy a lot of outdoor activities like kayaking, hiking, and lawn care to name a few (what can I say, mowing the lawn helps me attain a certain meditative state).

If you're interested in working together or just want to say hi, drop me a line.

Just For Fun

Space Dashboard

I always loved the International Space Station live streams and wanted to find a site that displayed fun and current space related data, but I found none. So I made one! Space Dashboard uses a lot of free and publicly available APIs from NASA to NOAA and back to NASA again (they have so many great APIs). I've enjoyed sharing this passion project with the world and have over 900,000 page views and counting since it went live back in 2016.

Weather Curve

Just a simple weather app to help you plan your week. This uses the Dark Sky API (for now) for a lookup of weather based on either your current location or locations you enter. I was inspired by an iOS app I loved, Fresh Air, which has since been abandoned.
