1. Front-end Web Developer at Mindstream Interactive

    Simply put, I'm building websites most days. Typically I use Gulp (build tool), Jade (HTML preprocessor) and Sass (CSS preprocessor). JS libraries, frameworks and design patterns change frequently between projects as appropriate. Some examples include: Surescripts, WhatIsA529 and DiggitalAddix.

    Between projects, I started building an HTML email automation tool. So far it has reduced development time by roughly 80% but it's got further to go. It's currently being rebuilt in node-webkit with a full GUI.

  2. Web Master at RIT NTID DAS

    The original project scope was a Drupal site with a blog, some static pages and a simple event registration system. After lots of work with the client, it evolved into a custom solution built with a much more powerful registration system. I was primarily responsible for the front-end which was built in Jade and Sass. Python and PHP powered the views and various API calls.

    Other parts of the job included a lot of meeting with and presenting to stakeholders and some auxiliary web work (mostly in Drupal, mostly on ntid.rit.edu). Three months of this project were remote work.

    RIT NTID DAS stands for Rochester Institute of Technology National Technical Institute for the Deaf Department of Access Services. And the PDP logo to the side stands for Professional Development Program, with which I worked the most.


  3. Web Master for Computer Science House

    A partner and I created and maintained the website for Computer Science House, a technical learning community I was an active participant of.

    The majority of this site was created in a 48 hour "project work weekend."


  4. App Dev and Web Experience Intern at Progressive Insurance

    Starting as a software development intern, the project I was assigned to elevated early so I switched to the web experience team working on progressive.com.

    The project I was assigned to in the beginning was ensuring tablet compatibility for some aging insurance-agent web apps. All that was remaining to do when I joined was a handful of cross-browser JavaScript problems. After elevating the project, I spent some time in flux which I filled with creating a web-app. Through the process of creating it, I put heavy emphasis on writing test-driven C#.NET and behavior driven JS. Following that, I switched to the web experience team where I spent much of my time fixing responsive issues across progressive.com as well as researching and prototyping different responsive image solutions.


  5. Student at Rochester Institute of Technology

    Graduating with a B.S. in Management Information Systems and a minor in Computer Science in 2 and a half years was tough, but the amount of money that I saved made everything worth it.

    For whatever it's worth, my GPA was a 3.32.
