Resume

I have been solving problems on the web for a decade. I’ve designed and built websites using front end code, and expanded functionality by writing plugins and contributing to the WordPress codebase.

In the last three years I’ve been focused on user experience practices, usability research, and data, and how together they lead to better websites.

Skills

I am a UX practitioner with experience leading tests, experiments, and analyzing and communicating the raw data afterward. I am most comfortable when working with a team to evaluate goals, identify key user findings, and develop the final product. While launching new features and websites are always great, I’m equally excited optimizing and improving upon existing work.

On the implementation side of things, I have a mastery of front end languages like HTML, CSS, and Javasscript. On the backend I am most comfortable with PHP and building websites on the WordPress platform.
