Portrait of Tom Barrasso

Hello! I'm Tom Barrasso, a Boston-based technologist. I am passionate about and driven by the confluence of science, software, and design.

At 15, I released my first app, StatusBar+. I quickly established a niche for myself: engineering and reverse-engineering user experience control solutions previously thought impossible. I've since successfully designed, developed, and marketed 10 apps. Below are a few that I'm most proud of:

Education: Science & Software

I'm a proud alum of UMASS AMHERST, with a B.S. in chemistry. Why chemistry? As the "central science," chemical models connect the theoretical and translational sciences. Below are some skills I acquired through independent projects and research:

As a self-taught, full-stack developer with an eye for design, I'm familiar with every stage of project development: from defining the user experience to writing and testing code.
I love to bring great ideas to life.

User Experience

Other skills include separations (GC, HPLC, SPE), spectroscopy (UV-Vis, IR, MS, Raman, NMR), synthesis, microbial culture & isolation, etc.
What about "XYZ" technique/ framework/ programming language? I'd love to learn it!

As a chemist, I fell in love with the way silver halides breath life into an image. My collection of film cameras is ever-expanding and I'm always shooting events, road trips, and portraits. Below are some recent photos from my Instagram:

Do you have an interesting product or idea you think I could help with? We should talk.
