my beautiful face


hi, i'm jd! i am an entrepreneur, engineering manager, and web developer

i live in rainy portland, oregon. let's be friends!

i am the vp of engineering at project admission, where we are building better tools for ticket buyers, sellers, and users.

i'm the webmaster of RACER TRASH, a freeform collective of artists that broadcasts reinterpreted media for charitable causes and your viewing pleasure. check out select clips on the website, or tune into the next stream on twitch.

in 2010 i co-founded StageBloc, a WORLD CLASS direct-to-fan platform that powered web experiences, fan clubs, and ecommerce for the world's top tier brands/creators. we were acquired by Fullscreen in 2015, and i led our front-end engineering team there as Senior Director until 2019.

i've worked with a ton of really awesome bands, artists, and creators... here's a partial list: metallica, red hot chili peppers, eric church, bon iver, kenny chesney, linkin park, justin timberlake, kid rock, keith urban, styx, lady gaga, giada de laurentis' GIADZY, florence and the machine, three days grace, steve aoki, awolnation, maroon 5, megadeth & slipknot.

i co-founded stargirl sounds in 2019. we are focusing on unique and disruptive strategies in developing, distributing, and monetizing segmented content for the millennial and gen z markets. i'll tell you more later.

i used to use twitter a lot. i still do, but i used to too. @jdhartley. my twitter bot @jd_ebooks gets more likes than me, and it's been a constant struggle to get over that. w/e.
