In past positions, I have designed and built online reservations systems, video websites and online video magazines including the first women’s online video surf magazine, She Rips. At Rawswell, I launched the first automated online content management system that published and indexed a weekly newspaper in SEO-friendly format before CMS was a widely-known term. It won the New England Publishing Association Best Newspaper Website for a Combined Weekly Newspaper two years in a row.
I'm easy to talk to and approachable, in groups I'm appreciated for bridging technical and non-technical ability levels to ensure that all stakeholders are on the same page. As a visual thinker who is familiar with technology frameworks, I refine, test and prove concepts to fit business objectives within specifications and budgets to produce work that people love to use. I'm also known for saving money and months of development time for clients with concise technical project specifications and ROI roadmaps for custom software development projects.
I am passionate about enjoyable, usable technology, culture, art, media, pop-culture, fashion, color theory and surfing. At work, I create new, authentic ways for brands to communicate. Beyond work, I enjoy painting, surfing, photography and writing. I have been a San Diego Ad Club member and has volunteered on the Ad Club Ad Auction committee and Special Olympics fundraising.
My specialties are: Brand design, design and development for e-commerce and online business, user experience design, online marketing, research and writing for technical specifications and brand communications.
