Thank you for visiting my interactive resume and portfolio. Over the years I've refined and expanded my skill set in many technologies, coding languages, frameworks and libraries which supported delivering competitive and compelling websites or applications. My creative background enhances execution on front end code and UI/UX work I perform. With the technology and creative skills combined, I feel my eclectic experience is comprehensive for a full beginning to end site and application development.
Website and application planning is important for any scale project. Proper planning from wireframes, flowcharts, styleguides, and architectural processes will result in successful applications and websites.
More than just a web developer, my experience in software engineering will prove vital in any enterprise level team. The ability to efficiently debug and unit test code for better reliability.
Understanding the marketing and search engine optimization aspect of a project allows me to integrate such into the planning and development stages. Tools used like HubSpot, ExactTarget and Sales Force along with SEO tools like the MOZ and Google Webmaster can deliver impressive results.
The following languages, frameworks, or libraries are my current focal points in building my skill set
Although I still work traditionally with Linux systems to host sites and applications, Node environments are ideal along with NPM for rapid development solutions.
My current role as a software engineer developing software for our Salesforce application enabled me to work with proprietary technologies like Lightning Web Components & Apex
In working with AWS solutions and services, I've firsthand found how robust solutions like Lambda, Cloudfront, GraphQL/AppSync integrate into our projects.

— Skills, Technologies, Frameworks —
Below are the top most popular skills used in current or recent projects. There are many more not listed and many facets of web development where my experience would apply.
My primary forte in software and web development is in the FrontEnd realm. My focus is on the popular or necessary frameworks depending on my role. Currently that entails Lightning Web Components (Salesforce version of Angular or React). Other projects and positions I've held called for React or more traditional front end work. Most of the libraries and frameworks I've worked with were ES6+ syntax or TypeScript.
I've worked and integrated with multiple CMS and CRM platforms. Salesforce, Contentful, and WordPress are of late and other open source CMS like Concrete5 in the past. Salesforce I've worked with front and backend custom development.
In most software roles, some type of CI/CD integration and experience is expected. Multiple roles I've held employed different flavors of integration. Some with online solutions like CircleCI whereas others utilized pipeline integrations with Gitlab.
Understanding online marketing helps with my development. SEO and many marketing and development tools. Google Tag Manager and many more integrations help with marketing (and other development functions). Optimizing a site knowing the code and page efficiency will play a big role in SEO.
Before my engineer days, I held design roles in which I was able to design websites, branding, and print assets. Strong Adobe Suite experience and even some 3D animation. My design experience has played a large role in my UI/UX development. Using tools like Zeplin.io and other applications to deliver my page mockups allows for a full perspective on web development.
