I am a self-motivated, hands on, pragmatic software architect with over 20 years experience. I am a full stack developer with a current focus on Youth Digital Video and Web Front-End Technologies. I am an expert in mashups and integrating systems. I value solved problems, collaboration and launched applications over theory.
I thrive in an environment with moderate oversight and with creative freedoms to be innovative while iterating quickly on customer feedback. I have a proven track record of innovation and "crushing" expectations. I was recognized for my achievements at Constant Contact for building the first versions of EventSpot, SaveLocal and a Customer Loyalty application. I was awarded prizes for Tweet My Event, Custom Theme Picker, and QR Scan-to-Join which can all be seen in the products today along with Early Bird Special, Galileo Editors, and an online Organization Chart.
I am a very effective communitor and can bridge the gap between techincal and non-technical people. Early in my career, I architected and coded the IBM Virtual Help Desk in English and Japanese. I was flown to Japan to train the sales, marketing and support teams on the product. More recently, I have taught classes and done lightening talks at Constant Contact on internationalization, the bootstrap library, debugging in Chrome and geocoding with Bing.
