Sharepoint Developer and Architect

CONSULTING WITH CNL FINANCIAL GROUP, INC UNIVERSITY OF TENNESSEE
LPGA, DAYTONA BEACH, FL SharePoint Developer and Architect Designed and architected a new“ Online Media Center” for the LPGA, working closely with business stakeholders. LPGA business users who are on-site at tournaments are responsible for providing statistics, quick facts, and other basic reports about players, tournaments, courses, and pairings. Before this new Online Media Center project, each of these queries literally required their Director of Tour Media to manually search through historical PDF documents, and often times request the raw data directly from the Database Administrator. It was a terrible mess and a costly waste of time. The design for the new Online Media Center had two high-level objectives: To provide basic SharePoint intranet and extranet capabilities: Press Releases management; content approval; provisioning of permissions as new media members were granted access to the extranet; and all the workflows associated with those activities. To provide a flexible reporting environment that allowed both internal LPGA staff and extranet users to consume“ canned” reports, and have a level of self-service for authoring reports on their own. —

Sr. Technical Consultant

THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY
ORLANDO, FL Sr. Technical Consultant Provided executive-level consulting services as Disney's IT organization was going through a massive reorganization. Specifically, brought in to save a strategic IT objective that was failing. IT leadership was tasked with re-writing a line-of-business application suite that managed roller coasters and other rides at their theme parks.

The end result was a successful deployment delivered on time.: Completely re-organized the way the project was managed.
