I am a user experience driven developer living in Charlotte, NC. I've spent the last few years bumping shoulders with talented folk at SunGard, Ally, Beer Exchange, and Blu Cigs, among other places. When I'm not in front of a computer, I'm probably out hiking with the pups, enjoying a local beer and some new records, or catching up on my favorite TV shows.
Brought on to help build a new User Experience team from the ground up, responsible for designing and developing modern, user-friendly financial applications.
Worked with brand executives to architect solutions and deliver enhancements and fixes to the customer facing website as well as internal tools.
Part of a small team that created and maintained data collection utilities to power interactive data applications and charts.
Worked with the customer service department to analyze and identify website bugs, develop use cases, and deliver fixes to an e-commerce store.
Spent far too many years working in various retail management positions, managing teams from 5 to 40 people in clothing and printshop settings. All the while, web dev was still a hobby and provided occassional freelance projects.
Took an accelerated path while working full time. Focused on semantic web development, PHP, and MySQL. Graduated with a 3.75 GPA.
