Experience

Seasoned and creative web developer, marketing director and born to shine.

2012 / April - Present

Auburn Pharmaceutical

Lead Web Developer

I get work and play at Auburn Pharmaceutical as the Lead Web Developer. Working within this environment has given me many opportunities to keep up with web trends within the medical industry and clash them with 100% creative freedom.

We've launched a new brand, GenericBid as another veture. The branding and design was something I got the chance to play with along with some really cool concepts for an auction website controlled by desktops and mobile phones.

1998 / Nov - 2012 / April

Waddell & Reed/Reid Associates/National Life of Vermont

Marketing Director & IT Admin

I became the Marketing Director because of my strong understanding of brand recognition and development. With 15 years with the same company, I got the chance to help grow and learn many facets of marketing and research even though my heart has always been focused on Web Development.

Freelance Developer

I started with IMT Studios in 1998 and branced off the following year to chase my own ideas.

No project is impossible with the right team.
