March 2013 - November 2015
In the first year and a half I worked at Dealer.com, I formed a small team that developed tooling and advocated best practices for front-end developers working on our customer facing management system. I was the primary developer for our Bootstrap-based UI framework and style guide, and I designed and wrote the framework integration for an asset management and deployment system designed for performance and cacheability.
November 2008 - December 2012
I helped manage the day-to-day operations of this small but growing web shop. I was instrumental in business development, project management and building client relationships. I headed the development side of the business, overseeing all aspects of strategy and implementation.
October 2007 - November 2008
In the year before I started Bearded, I was building my freelance business designing and developing custom web sites for small businesses and nonprofits. I participated in the launch of Debtsy.com as the lead developer.
October 2005 - October 2007
I designed application interfaces and user interaction patterns (for UX), developed web sites and applications. I was responsible for setting project budgets and timelines, and coordinating with a team of four overseas developers.
January 2002 - May 2005
I received a BA in Nonfiction Writing (minor, Computer Science).
