I am a web developer, if you need some explination on that please click here. I freelance, consult and generally love the web. My specialty is front-end programming, UI/UX, mobile and multimedia.
For a better feel of my design experience, I have a powerpoint Design Portfolio as well.
If you can't take my word that I'm a top-teir web developer, here's some examples of my work.
To advance my career as a User Interface Specialist both professionally and personally by expanding my experience, education, skill set and conquering new challenges.
Bachelor's degree Heidelberg College Tiffin, Ohio Bachelor of Science – Computer Science and Business Administration; Graduated 1999.
Primarily helped in the development of interaction and animation of content made for iPad apps. This content was developed in HTML4/5 and CSS 3. Animations and interactions were built using jQuery.
Built an online receiving tool for the national network of pharmaceutical distribution centers. This standardized the process of scheduling product deliveries. Created a mechanism for quantifying the quality of delivered product. Provided reporting for management. Saved the time of dock workers and schedulers.
This application featured an easy-to-use interface. The layout was kept consistent, logical and simple, while still appealing to the eye.
Later versions of this application connected with other enterprise systems to provide live information on delivery status, content and other information.
Built an online communication system for off-cycle ordering. This application provided users for a way to communicate between the corporate office and the main distribution center about any non-standard orders. The application was fast, user-friendly and provided real-time communication, while reducing labor costs of performing the same tasks manually
Built and maintained a supplier scorecard. This was a key report, bringing together data from many different sources regarding supplier performance. The scorecard was built with a logical layout, and was easy to read. Virtually any supplier could look at the scorecard and know what it meant with little explanation.
Various other web-based online reporting. These featured a basic list, expandable for more information such as alternative items using jQuery.
Redesigned the Xcelerate Media Learning management system (LMS). Upon my arrival the LMS had very limited capability. After my first major revision the system received the following enhancements:
A third revision was completed with a teammate. This update included even more enhancements:
Designed and developed a client website from user requirements. This Data-driven AJAX site allowed for the sales staff to set up a sales call with a potential customer. They would then display examples of Xcelerate Media products online. The examples were chosen from a list for the specific audience of the potential client.
Aided in the development of Flash-based e-learning courses. These online courses were much like very high-end PowerPoint slides with animation and narration. Each course involved editing Action Script, Recording and editing audio files and sometimes video integration.
Built the corporate website for Hull & Associates (www.hullinc.com). Built from client requirements and a home-page design by another artist, this corporate website was developed with HTML, CSS AJAX and VBScript.
Served at webmaster for the public website. This included the development of new web content and maintaining existing pages. One problem that existed was posting news to the website in a timely fashion. This process could take up to forty-five minutes. I developed a system that used our intranet to produce the content, and write it to the public web-server taking the time to publish down to five minutes, thus building a small CMS.
Set a goal of increasing searchability of the website. This included researching, adopting and putting into action early SEO best practices
Prior to the rebranding of Cardinal Health, several subsidiary companies went to market under their own name. It was my responsibility to take all of their localized content and create one Cardinal Health branded website.
During and after the rebranding of Cardinal Health, I was constantly pushing for a return to best-practices on the web to better service the audience viewing our sites.
Developed and maintained an intranet for the PTS Business segment. This intranet included an interactive phone directory, later copied by the corporate intranet. Document sharing, updated news and events and a content management system.
Developed intranet applications for departments such as HR. These data-driven applications provided users with the ability to collaborate on hiring executive level employees.
Developed and maintained the corporate intranet. This is where I learned the meaning of the “killer app”. While this dotcom was growing rapidly, it was the photo gallery of all employees that gained the most interest. People wanted to see who the new employees were. Upon revisions of the intranet new applications were built to aid in job performance.
Aided in the development and maintained the corporate website. In one year the website went through three iterations. Through this process I worked with both independent designers and large marketing firms such as Resource Interactive to collaborate on how the site should work.
Aided in the development of a low-end customer product. While the enterprise edition of LogiKeep’s product was an Outlook-style desktop application, I was very involved in a web-based offering of the same solution.
