My objective is to become the head of a web design and development team that's passionate about the customer experience as well as quality of work. My unique ability to design and develop websites and applications as well as manage a team that does the same gives me an advantage against my competition with only management experience.

Manager, Web Design and Development
Was hired in 1998 as a Web Designer and within a year was promoted to the head of "everything web" at (then) Group 1 Software. Since 1999 I have managed the company's entire web presence including Intranet, Internet and consulting to other internal clients. I have expanded my team to include a dedicated Web Developer/DBA as well as a Front-end Developer. I also manage external contractors when extra workload scalability is required.
In addition to web planning and managing my team, I am also a designer and developer. Unlike most managers that have limited or stale technical experience, I create new designs, code webpages and design CMS features daily. This fresh technical ability gives the team increased scalability as well as efficiencies gained by having a manager who can fully understand what's being requested and how to implement it.
