About me

I am a builder and I love to build teams and systems that deliver solutions.
Most recently I have been focused on Agile production in a continuous integration and delivery agency environment. Delivering native apps and responsive web experiences for companies like Christie's, Mercer, Nutrisystem, Discovery, Playtex and many others. I work across the entire digital production lifecycle: ideation, strategy, planning, UI/UX, design, front-end & back-end engineering, up through to launch; and afterward. Converting Product Roadmaps into milestones, sprints, daily stand-ups, while keeping everyone on the same page can be a thrill. Especially when working with a team that is passionate about solving problems and making the hottest products possible. I strive to keep it Agile, although the digital landscape does not allow for a one-size-fits-all production solution. Using the right tool for the right job is imperative as each business and their challenges are unique, and this is what I focus on to foster success.

Great design is making something memorable and meaningful.

My Skills

You kind of have to be a jack-of-all-trades as a digital producer; it allows you to contribute to a project however needed. Sometimes I am strategizing or designing, other times I am making some code, although mostly it's keeping all parties on the same page. Ultimately, its always about making it to the finish line:
by any means necessary.
