I began my journey thirteen years ago as a junior front-end engineer for a small design company building ColdFusion websites for construction companies. Today, I lead the front-end efforts for one of America's largest insurance companies, working with technologies such as React and Node.js.
Throughout my career, I've seen the Web grow from simple static HTML websites into complex data-driven Progressive Web Apps. Over the years, I've invested countless hours honing my skills to stay on top of the next emerging technology trend. I'm not an expert at everything out there, but I'd be confident building just about anything UI related.
I've had the opportunity to work with some great companies. Check out my full resumé to learn more about my career journey.
With a group of other talented front-end engineers, I led the development of UI standards for enterprise wide initiatives. This included the production of several React component libraries, collaboration with designers to ensure the consistency of accessibility standards, as well as mentoring and onboarding junior developers.
As Lead Front-End Engineer for RealPage's LeaseStar division, I led a team that built a unified user interface for all of RealPage's LeaseStar products. The new service-driven user interface was built with Node.js, Angular, MongoDB, Express, HTML5 and CSS3.
As a Senior Front-End Developer for Restaurant.com, I had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects including implementing the site's city and cuisine landing pages, setting up A/B and multivariate tests, and collaborated with software engineers to rearchitect the site's user interface using MVC3, CSS3 and HTML5.
During my tenure at optionsXpress (Now Charles Schwab), I was responsible for the design and development of site pages including the commissions and broker comparison pages, educational resources such as the XpressMethod video library, and the webinars and workshops listing pages. I also worked with the marketing department to design and build numerous promotional landing pages, email newsletters and Flash banner ads.
At this small versatile design shop, I was involved with many facets of its design operations. My day-to-day tasks included designing and coding website templates, updating client websites with new content, and performing code audits to ensure code quality.
