A long career of rising to challenges that find me means I am the guy that gets better under pressure.
Results come from leadership and using focusing on outcomes over tools.
Developers take direction, engineers give directions. If you are looking for a code monkey, look elsewhere, 25 years of experience means I'll see the problems before you do, so don't second guess when my hair stands on end and I call something out for being stupid.
Contractors don't buy informercial tools to build your house, so you should not choose your technology on buzzwords, fear of missiong out, or some dubious claim that some tech giant is making it the standard.
Knowing what you have helps you plan your way forward.
I am always building testing tools and processes to lessen blowback from QA.
When's the last time your project worked cleanly across all viewports.
I was tasked with building functional prototypes for crucial revenue generating products for testing before engineers took them "the last mile" in to production.
I took a full development cycle from auditing users, writing user stories, building pagaes and helping discover the whole suite of applications for a major film distribtor and theater chain. I became the stakeholder between the dev team and the business.
As part of a two person team, I built the front end to test mobile devices (phones, tablets) for quality of service of DirecTV video apps on iOS/Android. This included screen mirrorng of devices in remote locations and reporting dropped connections, video quality and reliability.
I lead the front end practice for the world's largest legal portal. I created a template engine and style guide that generated reliable pages with full test coverage.
Consulting on multiple end-clients in multiple states, I introduced accessibility requirements and responsive design for several public utilities. The end result being fewer fines, and a massive reduction in casll center volume from users that required assistive technologies being able to finally self-serve.
As part of a consulting team, my partner and I worked to redesign gift lists and registries for the retailer. We built based on a new style guide we contributed to, and connected to physical devices like scanners for retail use.
I worked on a new CMS and created standards for use by all 32 professional football clubs.
The credit services provider tasked me with absorbing all of the 70 foreign franchise sites, absorbing them in to the new CMS, then documenting and training users world wide in the use of the content tools.
