Designer / Developer

July 2016 - present

I designed and developed new UX features with a focus on funnel optimization. I worked closely with stakeholders to develop information architecture, visual design and development strategies for a number marketing initiatives. I helped standardize workflow, estimation and deploy processes. Using adobe creative suite plus tools like uxpin, git, gulp, sass, and jquery I helped to make these projects not only brand focused, but compelling.

Skills

Developing people, process and products are my passion. I love working closer to the top of the stack. I've lead enterprise UI teams with a lean startup mentality. I've spent some time in the creative salt mines of an agency environment. I've had a couple years of leadership and UI architecture under my belt. I like what those things have done to my brain.
I know my way around UX design principles, information architecture, and front end performance tuning. Using tools like Angular, Wordpress, CraftCMS, Grunt, Powershell, Sublime text; I've designed and built everything from marketing & ecommerce sites to mobile apps that consume Restful Api's. Most of all, I like solving problems.
