Hello, my name is George Kilmain. I'm a front-end developer interested in all things internet. Currently, I am working as a contractor for Staples where I am the developer on a redesign project. The website is a major eCommerce site which generates revenues of over $2 billion per year.
Thanks for taking a look at my website!

Website matches consumers with mechanics. I was contracted to work on bugs and implement new features. Worked directly with the CEO on-site. openbay.com

I love all things football - NFL, College - and I thought it would be a good challenge to build a site which combined a mapping service (another interest) with football. This app is built with Ruby on Rails. The map plots 150 high schools in Massachusetts and sliders (jQuery UI) filter results. Its showing data from the 2012 season. It is hosted for free on Heroku. footballmapper.com.
Definitely chess. I've been playing for over 20 years and I'm active on chess.com. I love Fischer style chess because it negates openings and games become tactical very quickly.
Beer too. I like nice ales, especially IPA's from the brewers at Stone and Firestone.
Good food. I'm fortunate there are so many great dining spots in my area. Recently, my wife and I went to Black Sheep Restaurant in Kendall. It was excellent!
