I'm a web development project lead and front-end web developer with expertise in HTML, CSS, and jQuery. I'm great at collecting bits of tribal knowledge and creating processes and documentation to disseminate that knowledge. I get a kick out of forming teams and watching individuals grow their skills and ultimately their confidence. I'm big on facilitating collaboration between team members and creating opportunities for them to connect.

Projects

 OLL Pack 370

I designed and developed a small ecommerce site for Our Lady of Lourdes Boy Scout Pack 370. OLL Pack 370 needed a way to have online sales for their fall/winter fundraiser selling Christmas greenery. The ecommerce solution I developed for them utilizes PayPal as the payment gateway. Since the Pack uses ScoutManage to host their site, I had to host my solution remotely and use an iFrame on the ScoutManage CMS page. The fundraiser is only available in the fall.

Visit www.ollpack370.com for more information and to view the fundraiser when it is in season.

This project is paid for with the gratitude of seeing all OLL Pack 370's members go to the Boy Scout Jamboree.

 Forest Park Conservancy

Forest Park Conservancy (FPC) approached Portland State University for help redesigning their site and adding new functionality. This project became our capstone project that spanned two quarters.

The first phase of this project was to develop a front-end eCommerce solution. Back-end development of the solution was outsourced to a local developer. As a team, we developed a look and feel for the home page, menu system, and product pages for the new part of the site. As FPC already had new branding, we had to follow the brand guidelines.

The second phase of the project was to help FPC make a smooth transition from Business Catalyst to Drupal. As a team, we identified the information FPC wanted to keep, what new functionality they wanted, and how to reorganize their new site architecture with this data. The actual back-end work was outsourced to the same local developer who worked on the eCommerce solution. However, FPC's funding for the developer ran short and development was halted.

 Powell's Books

Portland State University's Digital Marketing Program always ends with cohort split into two teams and each team getting a marketing project. I was involved in the Christmas holiday marketing program for Powell's Books.

For five weeks, we studied Powell's Books exit numbers, the site itself, and our own first-hand experiences in the bookstore. As a team, we crafted a campaign that was engaging, interesting, and fun. Part of this strategy included Powell's Books taking advantage of an already used but not owned Twitter hashtag, #booklove. On the web site itself, we pitched an idea to have an interactive environment to help users narrow down the kind of person they were book shopping for, and having employees generate the suggestions on what kind of books those people would like. Additionally, we pitched a signature packaging style, wrapping the box in paper and stamping "Imported from Portland, OR" in red stencil ink. Unfortunately, Powell's Books had let go many of their marketing staff that week, so a marketing campaign for Christmas did not happen at all that year.

Team Members:

No hard feelings, I highly recommend a visit to Powell's Books for your own experience. It's a great way to spend a rainy day in the Great Northwest.
