A brief overview of my experience and offerings.

Web Development

I am a full-stack web developer with seven years of experience in web development and design. I work in HTML5, CSS3, Sass, JavaScript, AJAX, and mobile/responsive technologies like Bootstrap, FlexBox, and media queries.

I also work with templating engines like Handlebars.js, and develop full stack with MVC, Node.js, Express.js, MongoDB, and Mongoose.

I have competency in RESTful APIs, WAI-ARIA (accessibility), Git, security, WordPress, Adobe Muse, and Business Catalyst.

I am passionate about the free and open source software movement, and am an expert in Linux. I have used Linux as my sole Kernel for the past five years, but on-and-off since 2007.

In my career, I helped code and maintain Notre Dame College’s websites for five years while earning my BA. Since my BA, I implemented a website for a multi-national corporation, and developed a JavaScript UserScript file for ADP, one of the largest payroll companies in the world. I also completed a web design and development contract with a leading automotive company, and am completing a shopping cart application for a business analysis client, with Paypal REST API integration.

Business Consulting

What started as an extra-credit project for my 2009 Business Intelligence class grew into my own small business!

For the project, I offered to write a SWOT report - which analyzes a business' Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats - for a local goat milk soap business. What began as a kitchen operation has now expanded to four stores, with operations in two states, with orders coming from across the USA!

I've worked with other businesses as well - ranging from jewelry makers to organic tea blenders.

Research and Analysis

In 2012, I graduated with my BA in History and Intelligence Studies from Notre Dame College's Center for Intelligence Studies.

Making the Dean's list more times than not, I completed courses in Arabic (four semesters), Middle Eastern studies, geo-politics, national security studies, counterterrorism, international law, advanced structured analytics, writing for the Intelligence Community, methods of financial investigation, statistics, sociology, and a long list of history courses.

My Senior Research Project covered "Operation Fortitude South," the deception operation that protected the Normandy invasions. I also completed my first seminar of Norwich University's Master of Arts in Military History program.
