USER EXPERIENCE DESIGNER/ARCHITECT
In my time spent serving Allstate via contract I was proud to have developed creative and intricate, yet specified web applications that were cross browser and Section 508 ADA compliant. In order to successfully conquer these projects I conducted usability testing, application analysis, code reviews, and resolved accessibility issues within an Agile environment. This contract served as my formal introduction to Agile and I have been grateful for that introduction ever since.
Always – Forever
My heart and my passion beats with the craving to create. Through such themes as writing, photography, wood working, and even mechanics, I find that my life thrives while I flex my creative muscles and produce “deliverables” that serve myself and those around me. The heart and imagination that is poured into these independent projects make them highly impelling and appreciated by the masses.
