Current Status

Currently, I'm looking for my next position.

I've spent the last 20 years as a Web Developer working with JavaScript, HTML (5), CSS, ActionScript, Flash, along with many 3rd party libraries. I've managed teams (both local and remote), built applications, created games, ported Flash to iOS, created pharmaceutical presentations, build Facebook applications & contests, and created lean engaging ads to run on a multitude of platforms.

I've also spent a significant amount of my career teaching at a local community college, developing and updating my own curriculum, as well as for a corporate training facility. In my former position with Flashtalking I conducted training sessions showing their API as well as writing documentation and creating functional prototypes for clients.

Ideally, I'd love to find a position that allowed me to write documentation, create engaging examples, train clients, make video tutorials, and build functional examples for training purposes. I really believe that finding and sharing the story in documentation and tutorials is critically important to driving adoption with clients, creating advocates for your product in the process.

Let's find your story!

First Draft - my first non-fiction book

With my time off this year, I wanted to spend time writing a book. It's been something I've thought about doing for quite a long time. It's surprising how many details are involved with such a project, writing the book is really only half the job. Currently, the book is ... read more

One Semester Down - Straight A's in all my classes so far!

I've toyed with the idea of going back to school to get a more formal programming degree for years. I've found much success with being self-taught, asking myself good questions to drive my research and learning intentions, and speedily ingesting new material to learn the process of things. With being ... read more

Attending Okta’s Iterate conference - Fantastic!

Toward the end of last year, I had been burning out. Being laid off from Flashtalking wasn't a great feeling, it never is. Having this time off has been invaluable to replenish my creative reserves. I had fallen into a rut, that I hadn't realized I was in. Today I ... read more
