Currently I am an application architect at Dow Jones & Co., the parent company of The Wall Street Journal where I focus on front-end engineering, systems integration and performance optimization. Besides my regular work at Dow Jones, I have introduced and implemented tools and technologies like internal blogging, Subversion, WordPress as a CMS, issues/bug tracking with JIRA, and the Jitterbit integration platform. I have also participated in a corporate-wide effort to reorganize vertical functions into shared global services and more recently have started to promote standards-based design and programming styles.
Since 1995 I have worked for clients large and small, including my own consulting business as well as donated work to a number of non-profit organizations, so I tend to thrive when I get to wear many hats. I have telecommuted at companies like Merck and Lucent Technologies and interfaced with geographically dispersed team members.
When you speak to one of my clients or coworkers you will definitely hear that I am meticulous about my work, that I care about the quality of the final product and that I have a passion for innovation and early adoption of technologies.
