Experience:

I help build tools that help organizations and companies maintain their brand identity across their outfit and across the world. My work has included projects for clients including Lincoln Financial Group, Vallen, State Farm, Xerox, and Genesse & Wyoming.

Lincoln Financial Group Logo Request Tool

A web application designed to replace a tedious email process to approve requests for logo usage. The tool was designed and built so users can request specific branding for specific purposes, while administrators would have a central website from which to approve, deny, or correct said requests.

Conduent Brand Ensemble Style System and Layout

A brand management website built with Tenet Partners' propreitary Brand Ensemble digital asset management (DAM) system. With a weekend turnaround, I built out the style patterns and layouts, and troubleshot cross-browser formatting issues.

Tenet Partners' proprietary digital asset management system, designed as an end-to-end brand management solution. I help to maintain and update functionality of the core system, as well as work to improve its development tools.


Web Developer

Freelance, Miami, Florida
February 2014 to Present

I developed standards-compliant, responsive websites based on design compositions and wireframes. I worked to minimize cross-browser and mobile-responsiveness issues to ensure support for major browsers at a minimum.

Floating Lotus Recovery Massage

A single-page static site to promote a massage recovery service. Prototyped in HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript, I later rebuilt it as a mobile-responsive website using Boostrap and jQuery, making use of Formkeep for information capture.

A & G Creates' New Agency Website

A WordPress website with a fresh new look and responsive front-end for a local mom-and-pop design agency. I worked with the art director and designer to make sure their vision for the site's various interactions was technically viable, and that it wouldn't be lost in translation from desktop to mobile.

Coleman's Original Moonshine Cakes

A responsive Wordpress ecommerce site for a purveyor of moonshine-infused baked goods. I worked on all aspects of this website including building reusable styles, creating product taxonomies, and integrating payment processing and shipping cost calculation.
