Role: Creator / Engineer

I open-sourced a web component and Data API, that gives creatives easy access to 50 million Quick, Draw! Doodles with one line of markup.  Some links:

Some Background

Quick, Draw! was initially created by my colleagues here at the Creative Lab, namely Jonas Jongejan, along with the folks on the handwriting recognition team based in Zurich.  As a creative technologist at the Creative Lab, I've been involved in several ideas that have come about in the wake of the initial data set being released. I figured I could combine a few technologies that Google already has (Polymer & WebComponents, Cloud Endpoints) to make myself and others more nimble when playing with this data.
