Many projects in .NET with Ektron, PHP Drupal and WordPress sites, and everything in-between. At Corus many sites for different shows and other properties are hosted on a variety of platforms. Maintaining them calls upon a deep understanding of programming in general, creative thinking, and an ability to problem solve.
Created rapid prototypes of new design ideas, working closely with the design team to execute beautiful and functional interfaces for a doctor social media site. Created interfaces for customer portals and user facing web apps which allow doctors to rate and see ratings on drugs, share anonymized case questions, and collaborate on treating patients.
Working on legacy and new .NET platforms I'm responsible for UX and UI work on the Workopolis website.
I was responsible for a custom Wordpress theme for Big Brother Canada 2. This custom theme used Grunt scripts and Jade templates to compile a static site which interfaces with various dynamic components to offer a full, dynamic web experience that scales rapidly using Amazon AWS services to deal with sudden load spikes. I also created a custom theme for YTV's The Next Star.
My .NET knowledge is applied here toward creating beautiful solutions for many of our pharmaceutical and non-pharma clients. I've created back-end systems for internal use by clients and public-facing websites using angular.js, foundation, Twitter Bootstrap and many other technologies and frameworks.
As a web developer I worked on back-end and front-end code for fortune-500 clients in many industries. We made award winning products and while working at Grip I watched the company grow from 85 employees to over 150, with a significant growth in the Interactive department.
As lead programmer at a small marketing firm in Peterborough I enjoyed the best of both worlds. I got to wear many hats, programming some days and designing user interfaces others. The expectation was that I should rise to any occasion and excel at providing the solution that best suits our clients' needs.
While attending Trent University I took on some freelance web development and illustration jobs.
My formal training in Computer Science is from Trent University in Peterborough. An excellent small-city university it provided the opportunity to interact with my professors and to get deep into a subject that I love.
My experience at Trent has been critical to my understanding of Software Project Development & Management. Anyone can code. Not many can organise and code well.
