About

History

With nearly 10 years’ agency experience, I’ve developed compelling digital websites, interactives, and display ads for top brands.

My career as a developer began when I joined leading agency Publicis London, part of the well known Publicis Group of companies. As I impressed managers and clients alike with my proficiency creating display ads, my skills in development grew as I was awarded more substantial microsite and interactive projects. Along the way I developed several frameworks and libraries for programmatic animation and display ads that greatly reduced production time. I extended my skillset into front-end development by mastering HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript and was soon promoted to Lead Front-End Developer where I was responsible for creating and overseeing both static and CMS driven websites.

After nearly 7 years with Publicis, I joined Fuel Integrated as the Lead Web Developer. I employed my expertise on web development and animation to delivery visually impressive websites and apps for our clients. I introduced processes to ensure timely delivery and robustness with cross-browser testing. Leading the digital team, I also helped to create a website framework that offered flexible modern layouts for content and reduced production time.

A native of Michigan, USA, I hold Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design from Grand Valley State University and Associate in Arts from Grand Rapids Community College. I moved to England in 2006, and have lived and worked in the London area ever since.
