I’m currently pursuing new opportunities. Hybrid or remote is preferred, but I'm open to on-site for the right position. Feel free to email me, or contact me through my profile on LinkedIn.
I craft clean, user-focused front-ends, and develop robust back-ends for enterprise applications. I am known for increasing the accessibility, performance, and quality of every project.
I made technical proposals to improve the architecture of the front-end and back-end of the application, and oversaw their implementation. I built a library of reusable components and collaborated with the product designer to ensure accessible designs. I developed complex data tables and visualization charts to support the product. I implemented processes around branching, testing, and deployment and brought the front-end test coverage from 0 to 75%. I introduced end to end test coverage to the project to ensure the API and front-end logic stayed in sync with each other. I developed the back-end API's for most of the new features, as well as complex back-end logic to support it. I performed expansive code reviews, and mentored junior engineers on problem solving and front-end development.
I worked on both ends of the stack to develop features for internal tools to improve efficiency for all employees, reduce risk, and decrease losses to the company. I was architect for a complete overhaul of the role based access control system for the internal tools site. I doubled the amount of test coverage on my team and performed extensive code reviews. I coached the engineering team on front-end accessibility, and developed a plan for improvement in this area.
As a leader for the front-end architecture, I developed a framework for client-side validations which utilized best practices, and provided better error handling. I added missing validations to server-side classes and improved security and privacy by reducing the data provided in the API. I implemented responsive mobile-first designs. I updated all the email templates to be cross-client friendly which led to increased click-throughs. I solved photo caching issues with Amazon S3 and Cloudfront CDN, and built a rake task that would rename thousands of preexisting files. As a result users could then crop/edit their profile pictures and see immediate results. I set up build tools to improve developer efficiency and code quality. I led the team in cross-browser testing and making the application cross-browser compatible. I also converted applicable tests from feature specs to view specs, cutting down the runtime of test suite. I mentored the team on improving front-end performance and accessibility.
I worked on a large enterprise application developing features around Procurement, Invoicing, and Expenses. I developed components used app-wide by 5 different teams. I drove many features to completion from concept to technical designs, and finally the shipped products. I increased front-end performance for one of our largest customers by cleaning up HTML, refactoring where the CSS/JS was loaded, and updating old libraries to more modern technology. I improved test coverage and reduced the rate of bugs merged by writing unit/integration tests for every code change. I performed hundreds of code reviewers as one of the most reliable reviewers at the company. I worked on tools to increase developer productivity. I received recognition with an award for "Striving for Excellence".
Worked as a teaching assistant for a 2-Day workshop on Front-End Development and Back-End Development.
Handled all the graphic design, print design, and multimedia needs of my clients, administered websites in a CMS, built new front-end sites, and developed and managed social media presence.
Designed all graphics, print pieces, and multimedia for the foundation, as well as overseeing the website.
Designed and built multiple websites for the company, developed their branding, designed posters, invitations, official letterhead, and business cards.
Focused on graphic design, multimedia, video editing, and other computer generated artistic endeavors.
Worked on 3 major web projects, including a Rails app that crowdsources road hazards for bicyclists, a Backbone app that helps flow debate rounds, and a Rails app that helps find beaches nearby.
