I am a front-end web developer and digital content strategist. Having benefitted from a diverse work history, I am fortunate to have developed a unique set of skills that has led me to where I am now. Majoring in business at the University of Georgia, I graduated with a degree in real estate and went to work on the financial side of real estate development as an acquisition underwriter in Atlanta, Georgia.
After this I moved to Barcelona, Spain, for about 7 months and enjoyed life to the fullest. During this time I grew to speak Spanish at an advanced conversational level and was able to learn some traditional Catalan cooking techniques. I also saw my first professional game of soccer in Barcelona’s Camp Nou stadium.
Returning from Spain I spent a few months in Atlanta with my family and then packed up my car and moved west. I had a layover in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for about 8 months prior to moving to Los Angeles. After my arrival in Los Angeles, I found steady work in the entertainment industry and worked my way up to line producing a daily news and variety show on PBS.
Immediately following my work in TV, I acted on my interests and transitioned into graphic design and web development. I was able to learn a great deal about the clothing industry from my time creating graphics and tech packs for several Los Angeles based clothing companies. It was during this time that I was able to design and produce cycling uniforms for the Audi America cycling team.
I’ve recently completed a long-term contract at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management where I created and managed multiple websites within the Anderson school. It was right around this time that I began working with WritingCommons.org again as CTO and Head of Digital Content.
I live in downtown Los Angeles, I’ve adopted two wonderful street cats named Lavert and Baldr McQueen, and recently got my motorcycle license.
