Awards & Achievements
2016 Webby Award Honoree in the Not for Profit category for my work on the Gateway Church Annual Report
I’m the creator and maintainer of the Vuejs WordPress Starter Theme, a VueJS starter for those wishing to develop headless WordPress applications.
I pride myself on being able to accomplish tasks efficiently and faster than the majority of devs I’ve worked with.
I hold an A.S. degree in Computer Graphics Technology from Purdue University. Early in my career I was a “web designer” which means I spent most of my day in Photoshop slicing PSDs and the rest of the day in Dreamweaver.
Back in the early 2000’s I operated one of the first ever horror movie databases on the internet. It was called Living-Dead.com and for a period of time was THE home of horror movies on the web.
Remote work doesn't work for everyone, but I thrive in a distributed team. I've worked remotely for the majority of my career so I've had time to solve the challenges that come along with remote work.
- Oversaw the development of the majority of web development projects.
- Responsible for managing and mentoring other developers.
- Single-handedly developed many projects from conception to launch.
I have a passion for equipping the Church with powerful, state-of-the-art tools to help them serve their congregations and the world. Gateway was the perfect place for me to put that passion to work! Working with an amazing team of developers we produced award-winning work that we were incredibly proud of.
- Responsible for a large majority of web projects, including GatewayPeople.com and most of our conference websites.
- Helped build Gateway Network, our apostolic resource network.
- Helped introduce the development team to a modern dev workflow and current technologies.
- Received a nearly perfect annual review every year.
- Won a Webby award for my work on the Annual Report website.
My position at G2 Technology was one of the more interesting of my career. What started as myself and a product owner (an SEO expert) working to build a robust, SEO-focused custom CMS turned into a team of around 10 people after our product was acquired by G2.
- Leader of a small group of web developers.
- Designed the UI/UX for and architected a state-of-the-art content management platform that helped turn one of our websites into the #1 leading site in the industry and on Google in months, not years.
- Architected a large content delivery platform that housed millions of products and included a custom shopping cart system with complex shopping features such as “Make an Offer” and bulk product data management.
AuctionFloor.com was focused on becoming the standard for real-time online auctions. I worked as part of a small team of two developers to develop the platform that allowed auctioneers (or their assistants) to manage their on-location auction with online bidders. It was a cool project!
- Helped redesign and redevelop a robust web-based online auction management system.
- Assisted with company re-branding.
- Made specific suggestions for ways to solve complex technical problems the company had been facing with their software platform.
- Made use of multiple web technologies to give auctioneers the ability to accept live online bids for their on-site, real-time auctions.
Summersault Website Development
Summersault was my first dev job and I loved it. I learned so many things during my time there working on countless client projects. In those days a “web designer”, as we were called, I was responsible for creating designs comps for each project and iterating on this with client feedback. Once the design was approved I would then begin building out the front end.
- Responsible for the design, development, quality assurance and launch of the majority of projects.
- Responsible for the design of all marketing materials
