I’m a UI/UX focused development manager based in Reston, Virginia. For the last eight years, I have helped companies in the DC area design, launch, and maintain modern user interfaces. My most recent work has focused on design systems, component libraries, and web applications built with modern Typescript and React.

I build and maintain applications for querying and visualizing AWS service health across regions. Due to the massive amounts of data our customers view and interact with, I spend most of my development time focusing on our applications’ performance, accuracy, and UX. I’ve planned, designed, and architected many core features of the UI in close collaboration with our customers and backend engineering team.

I lead a UI development team within Cvent R&D, focusing on our internal design system, React component libraries, and new web applications. My time was split between people managing, project planning, writing/reviewing code, interviewing, and mentoring. My team worked closely with UX from early ideation and prototyping to maintenance and support for consuming product teams.

As the UI lead, I designed, developed, and launched our flagship web application suite in less than a year. Our product was Google Docs for enterprise ID cards. Our customers were manually editing and printing unique ID cards via a desktop app and attached printer. Our solution was a cloud-based printer and template management system with an in-browser WYSIWYG template designer and a mobile capture app. The web app and card designer are built with Angular/Typescript and the mobile capture app in React/Node/Express.

Lead UX/UI Developer

React, Redux, Angular, Bootstrap, SASS, Wordpress, PHP, Laravel

As the sole UI developer, I developed and launched our marketing site, video-on-demand streaming application, and media CMS dashboard within six months. I lead the effort with our digital marketing firm to optimize our marketing funnel by setting up analytics, tag management, SEO, and A/B testing.

I worked on updating and redesigning the UI for three large web applications. Additionally, I worked with the marketing team to design and code mobile landing pages, build and optimize email campaigns, set up A/B tests, and create channel-specific landing pages for social media and SEM.
