Purpose:

To work for a fast-paced company where I can build on my web design and development skills, while also contributing from my vast background in copy writing, SEO, analytics, and social media.

About me:

I'm an ambitious self-learner that has experience in most - if not all - areas of web design, inbound marketing, and community management. To say I'm used to wearing many hats in the workplace is an understatement.

I got my start in 2011 doing search engine optimization and reputation management with industry juggernaut Reputation.com. From there I went on to work at several silicon valley startups, most notably NetworkedBlogs.com, where I was responsible for copywriting, customer acquisition, social media management, and PPC advertising. I then spent 2 years in community management with Fortune 500 Hitachi Data Systems, where I learned how to fit into the workflow of a 5,000+ person company and mastered the JIVE community platform. Finally, I spent 2 years as a freelance copywriter and SEO, before accepting my current full-time position at the SEO firm L2T Media.

Most recently, I spent hundreds of hours on nights and weekends learning the ins and outs of computer programming and web development. I am proficient in web design using HTML5, CSS3, PHP, Wordpress, and Bootstrap. I'm also skilled at JavaScript programming, including some of the most popular frameworks such as jQuery, Node.js, Express, React.js, and Angular.js. I'm also familiar with traditional SQL databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL, along with NoSQL databases like MongoDB. In the offline world, I have an intermediate level understanding of C++, Java, and Python for writing simple applications to streamline workflows and automate large or repetitive tasks.
