Projects

HTML5 Banners

Working for various advertizing agencies such as PB & Seattle, Cole & Weber and Hammerquist, I've taken Adobe graphic files and created lightweight HTML5 banners. End clients have included WA State Convention Center, the Chulluly exhibit, Pride Seattle, Hawaiian airlines, The olympic Partnership and more. Using "vanilla" JavaScript, I am able to keep file sizes at industry standards (150kb usually) for fast loading. My prefrence is to create from code up for better cross-browser compatibility and easier updates. I'm able to clearly explain any technical issues and the cost benifits of different solutions.

Budweiser.com

Working for PB & Seattle on a freelance basis, I created a new version of the Budweiser.com site with pure HTML | JS | CSS. This was simple, but pretty fun to get the design just right. I worked with a few non-technical people and made several changes throughout the development.

Azure.com

I worked for Microsoft on mainly on the front end of the Azure.com, Stream.com, Flow.com, PowerApps.com and PowerBi.com. Very skilled developers gave me guidence every day and I improved my ability as a developer immensely. I worked in a .NET environment with custom LESS libraries and Xhtml with C# and RESX injection. Several project managers worked with me to deliver solutions to the code quickly and effectivly. We participated in daily standup using a Kanban method due to the high churn of development reqs and daily site deployment.

Data Reporting System

Working with the Sr. Data architect at Cole and Weber, I created data intake, deduplication, business logic implementation and publishing procedures. Working closely with the marketing department to get the correct requirements, we worked carefully to create a reporting system pulling from nearly 100,000 rows of data.

Blue Cloud Hosting

There is no one place on the internet that features a plurality of expedition vehicles for sale. Overland It aggrigates expedition vehicles for sale from a variety of sites and hosts them on a mongoDB database using Node.js and Express.js as the app backend. The origional concept was to data scrape expedition vehicles from a few sources and aggrigate them on the site. However, the problem was a bit too big for the solution. There were no sites with more than two expedition vehicles on them so the data was manually added to the database.

PrepperPrepper

This moble responsive web app was created to help people be better prepared for emergencies. Users input where they live and are given a snyopsis of earthquake, civil unrest and flood danger for that area. They are given reccomendations for food, water and gun storage and can log in and get their prep score by inputing the number of meals, gallons of water, and guns they have. I'd like to improve the load time and number of cities available to select from.
