Background

Summary

What excites me about technology is solving the puzzle: taking a huge set of complicated business objectives and often-competing priorities, and working with clients to come up with something that is beautiful, functional, and easy for customers to use.

While I have a thorough understanding of best-practices and current technologies, I'm able to challenge those limits when trying to solve complex problems. With both design and front-end development capabilities, I’m able to ensure that design and business priorities are carried through to the final product.

*Technical Skills*
Advanced skills in HTML5 / CSS3, jQuery, AJAX, & JSON. Extensive mobile and responsive experience. 10+ years experience with a variety of creative & technical software and CMS including Adobe Creative Suite, Visual Studio, Sitecore, SharePoint, and Wordpress.
