I am a creative technologist with a hybrid mix of web development expertise, strong writing skills, and management experience essential to guiding a project from concept to execution.

Development

Harnessing the dynamic functionality of ActionScript, Javascript, PHP, MySQL, CSS, WordPress, and HTML, I’ve spent 11 years building content.

In order to show transparency regarding the annual ski tests conducted in Utah, we made a video that explained the practices and methodologies employed to achieve this end.

Project Management

Collaborating across the room or the country, I work seamlessly across departments to guide projects from concept to execution.

Spanning over 1100 products shots, reviews, and test data, this project's goal was to offer the user a better way to find skis and boots on Ski Magazine's website. The project offered a refined user interface that supported new functionality while preserving legacy content, and at the same time, giving the developers a cohesive road map for the application. Collaborating with editors, designers, developers, and testers, we added essential functionality to the website while meeting complementary publishing deadlines. project management | mapped requirementsview project
