Philosophy

I am drawn to web development because of the unique combination of technology, design, art, and communication. My approach privileges web standards, notably the separation of content, presentation, and behavior layers, with an attention to simplicity, accessibility, and forward-compatibility.

Languages & Tools

X/HTML, CSS, Microformats, XML, JavaScript/jQuery, PHP/MySQL, WordPress, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Flash (working knowledge)

Experience

Web Developer, Manning Agency

June 2007 to June 2009, NJ

Managed scheduled updates and client requests amongst a 5-person technical/design staff supporting over 25 sites. Initiated and directed the adoption of framework, semantic coding, and documentation standards and practices. Improved user experience by revising content, presentation, and behavior layers to simplify user interactions, speed development, and mitigate errors. Streamlined site support by creating WordPress plugin(s) to handle content, media, release/expiration, and sorting of site assets.

Web Editor, Duke Law School

August 2005 to June 2007, Durham, NC

Contributed to 2007 redesign involving information architecture, identity, re-branding, usability improvements, content migration, and frontend recoding. Improved user experience through semantic and usability updates to high-trafficked pages. Coordinated publishing of online course materials between faculty and support staff. Recognized for increasing Law School’s visibility with promotional materials for Bound By Law?, a comic about documentary film and copyright law.

Freelance

The World Council of Churches (coming soon!)

Addressed the needs of the WCC’s diverse international audience by designing/developing a clean, friendly, culturally non-specific, standards-based series of templates. Coordinated technical guidelines and design approval with IT and Communications departments based in Geneva, Switzerland.

Vineyard Community Church of Morristown

Increased sense of community by incorporating social networking tools such as Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr. Revised permalink structure to preexisting WordPress plugins to increase search engine exposure. Reduced costs and simplified maintenance by migrating 3rd-party Podcasting service into WordPress admin.

After years with a crown on my head, I’ve grown overfed, unconcerned and comfortably numb. Kept busy indulging in the pleasures of the wealthy.

…Someone make me afraid of what I’ve become.
