Lake Washington High School

2002-2004

In High School I kind of kicked off my interest in web development with an Adobe Flash class, which was actually a cool technology at the time. I did some e-Commerce marketing stuff in the DECA program as well.

Flash: basic web design concepts, animation keyframing, that sort of thing e-Com Marketing: learned how to fill out a job application without making a grammatical error

University of Washington

2005-2009

I was a European Studies major at UW, so my web dev EXP in college consisted of adding the HTML for a Top 16 to my MySpace account. The concepts were valuable, and so was my minor: French.

European Studies: learned about organizational super-structures, inheriting properties (laws) French: language-learning techniques ended up being pretty useful later on

GoSkateShop, Super-Fit, JHSurgery

2009-2013

Worked for a guy that had a thing for starting e-Commerce stores. I ran everything for all of them, from answering customer service phone calls to helping with two site re-designs.

GoSkateShop: hands-on work with Flash, Adobe Creative Suite, e-Commerce management, and lots of customer service Super-Fit: first work with HTML and CSS, and minor development work WordPress

CrystalCommerce

2014-2017

Started as a customer service rep. Worked hard, moved into web design and UX, and then into product management.

Customer Service: refined that ever-important ability to explain technical subject matter to non-technical persons Design/Development: went from 4th-grade reading level to fluent in HTML/SCSS and can do work with JS as well Product Management: learned to build consensus, to adapt to uncertainty, and a lot about agile process

Outside Work

I get pretty bored if I'm not challenging myself with something new and difficult to focus on. The things I am proudest of all follow that mold.

Snowboarding:In 2009 I moved to Jackson, WY just to snowboard. Inadvertently, the jobs that I had there laid the groundwork for pursuing web develoment. Halo Suit:I think armor costumes are cool. Like a true DIY enthusiast, I watched about 2 minutes of a YouTube video and figured
I could make one too. It went better than expected.
Web Develoment:The world of webdev is basically endless, and it can be self-taught. It may seem strange because web development is just work for so many people, but for me it's a fun world to explore. If you read all of that,It's probably time to look at my portfolio.
