experience

Senior Digital Developer

Greteman Group

March 2016 - Current

I lead and consult for web projects and IT at Greteman Group. My role is evaluating creative and design deliverables which is followed by rapidly prototyping. I often guide the client through the entire process of choosing a host, setting up accounts, launch, training followed by support. I transform creative into scalable, fluidly responsive, performant and accessible websites. I hone in and tailor skills required to accommodate to a large variety of clients and technical requirements.

Web Developer / Designer

Prime Concepts Group, Inc.

March 2014 - March 2016

At Prime Concepts I started incorporating more marketing efforts, campaigns and strategies into the structure and content in the websites I created. Creating websites and landing pages quickly and efficiently pushed my development process helping me to level up to fully customized solutions for clients. I switched from making adaptive websites to fully responsive websites during this time.

Web Developer

Whistler Media Group

March 2013 - March 2014

During my time at Whistler Media, I became familiar with Wordpress. I created custom themes, customized preexisting themes and designed website elements and UI. I started building my knowledge of the ins and outs of SEO and SEM by strategizing campaigns, optimizing websites and setting up pay per click advertisements.

Graphic Designer / Supervisor

HaysTees & JoeBobOutfitters.com

January 2009 - January 2013

Start ups are a great way to flex the new skills you learned in college and I did just that for Haystees and JoeBobOutfitters. In addition to designing the logo, website and marketing materials I also facilitated the implementation of an ecommerce platform. In addition to creating the creative, I also helped with the logistics and managed the HaysTees shop and employees. I wore many hats and this speaks to my adaptibility and wide range of skills.
