About Me

I have acquired both my Bachelor of Science in Digital Arts & Design and my Associate of Science in Digital Media from Full Sail University. I currently work at SAIC as a System Admin and do freelance work on the side. As an Interactive Developer at Adcetera, I worked on a variety of projects including websites, landing pages, banners, digital signage, emails, and more. Some of my final projects included building websites using Drupal 8 paired with Acquia, Progressive Web Apps, and Electron Apps. While at Disney, my work included email and web banner development, plus working on internal development tools to assist in production.

My specialties include web tools built using HTML5 and JavaScript, websites built using a variety of methods (WordPress, Drupal, hand-coded), AIR application development, and Android app development. I love video games, movies, audiobooks, Star Wars, good storytelling, technology, and, of course, the internet. I am a storyteller at heart, so being succinct is a bit of a challenge. I also donate blood as often as I can to help others in need and have donated over 4 gallons in the past decade.

Summary

Skilled developer with over 10 years' experience. Extensive knowledge of industry standard software and hardware. Experience working in professional office environments. Able to notice small details within large projects. Works well under pressure and deadlines. Stays late if needed in order to complete a project on time. Familiar with morning scrum process and entering daily timesheets.
