Experience

Catalyst Inc. (Rochester, NY)

UX Developer | January 2007 – Present

When I started out at Catalyst I was part of a digital creative team doing both design and code. My skills in front-end coding led me to take on more of a development role and this has molded me into who I am today. I am constantly looking for better ways of solving problems and I’m seen as an innovator. This has led to Catalyst’s implementation of various technologies over the years: SMS, jQuery, CSS3 and responsive design, to name a few.

REDCOM Laboratories (Victor, NY)

Web Developer/Web Master | October 2006 – January 2007

When I worked for REDCOM I did more than just the web-master position. I worked as a web-master, an Apple computer administrator, a software developer and even a Flash animator. I needed to efficiently manage my time and I learned that by planning out my projects from the beginning I would save more time in the end. I applied this idea to some of the projects I worked on, which included: a bug-tracker for our software development team, a job board for our human resources department, and an interactive directory with employee info, photos and maps.

Nimble Design Group (Rochester, NY)

Co-owner/Web Developer | January 2006 – January 2012

One of my college friends and I decided that we wanted to go into work for ourselves. We created an LLC and started getting clients. The work that I did was an amalgamation of design, development, and strategy for various small business clients in the Rochester area.

Vendmore Systems LLC (Stamford, CT)

Web Developer | June 2005 – January 2006

This was my first full-time position out of school. The job was to develop an inventory management front-end for network-enabled vending machines. Because this was a startup, I learned that I needed to work quickly and efficiently. This was my first foray into AJAX and SOAP calls from Javascript and XML parsing with PHP. Needless to say, though I was only here a short time, I learned a lot.
