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.
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.
As a UX Designer and Front-End developer for this technology consulting firm, projects include: a global management consulting company, Fandango, ArcLight Cinemas, CAPS Entertainment Payroll, and the Motion Picture Association of America.
UX, design and front-end development for rightsline.com and proprietary micro-licensing application for media rights. In 2014, Rightsline was acquired by Critical Mass Studios Inc
Projects included: The Directors Guild of America, Manatt Health Solutions, and YogaWorks.
Over the years I've freelanced for various tech companies, start-ups, and small businesses. I'm never afraid to try my hand at something new: which means I've done everything from 3d animations to coffee packaging to custom e-commerce software.
I was the designer and front-end developer for this start-up that built career-specific social networking communities. I was part of the development team that brought over a dozen sites into existence. In January of 2008, Affinity Labs was acquired for $61M by Monster Worldwide (Nasdaq:MNST).
I founded my first small-business and trained lifeguards, nurses, police officers and hundreds of others in first aid and CPR.
