Past / Sunsetted Projects
⛅️ PatriotPostal (2007-2009): A postal storage and scanning service that allowed Marines the ability to view their postal mail while deployed or stationed abroad (Never launched publicly, due to exorbitant equipment costs and privacy issues. These days, this service is commonplace) .
⛅️ PatriotLaundry (2007): A laundry Pickup/Drop-off service for Marines living aboard Camp Pendleton (washers/dryers in the barracks were either bogarted or broken. I got tired of it, so I did something about it).
⛅️ MyMilitaryClassifieds (2006): Think Craigslist with a military twist or as TechCrunch founder, Michael Arrington, describe it, "Craigslist for the military." (born from my frustration with being unable to search Craigslist by military base instead of city).
