I am passionate about building things that people can use and will make their lives better.
Currently, I work for Indiana University as a part-time web developer and I attend IUPUI as a part-time student.
Previously, I was a web developer at MediaSauce in Carmel, Indiana. I spent most of my time there building sites with WordPress and ExpressionEngine and enhancing usability and presentation with jQuery and CSS. My position at MediaSauce required exceptional levels of communication and continuous professional development. I went from being a fresh college graduate, who had very little practical experience, to a professional with nearly two years of experience in a fast-paced, high-pressure environment.
Through college and beyond, my work experience has taken me to many places. I have gone from doing pro bono work for a non-profit to assisting people in IUPUI's computer labs to full-blown development at an advertising, design, and development shop.
