I am an aspiring Renaissance man. I believe that a diversity of interests and endeavors creates opportunities to do great things. I strive to constantly challenge myself and learn, and bring those experiences to whatever I do. As a technologist moving into the unknown territory of our future, I am here to provide an enthusiastic, reasoned voice that is backed by a wide range of perspectives and a desire to solve real human problems with technology. I am most inspired by a work environment that requires a diverse set of skills. As a manager, I endeavor to inspire individual responsibility, while providing the context and tools for success.
In November 2014, I moved from front-end development to business development, a brand-new department for &yet. I diversified our client portfolio and developed a product strategy for the company, clarifying and solidifying our position as a product development consultancy.
Seeing a large gap in Richland’s nightlife, I founded MUX, an indie rock venue that creates big-city musical experiences once a month in a restored 1950s cinema. I envisioned our “sound” and experience, booked bands, managed logistics, and created an operational board that continues to operate the venue today.
I worked for Columbia Gorge Community College migrating their website from an Adobe Cold Fusion/Contribute based system to Drupal. I assembled a team of driven people from across the campus, and together with an outside contractor, we planned out and implemented a two-year conversion that included over thirty individual development projects, thousands of web documents, and a complete design and brand overhaul for the college.
I freelanced my own Wordpress agency, building and designing blogs and portfolio sites for local business and individuals.
I am an autodidact. After graduating high school, I designed my own college program out of various available resources including CLEP testing, an extensive reading program, and MOOCs from Stanford and MIT. I am dedicated to continuing this practice throughout my life.
