Exceptionally focused, organized, hard-working, detail-oriented and dependable. An easy communicator with an uncompromising work ethic. Highly motivated, always intellectually curious and a life-long learner.
There are designers that make it look pretty, coders that make it work, but for a lasting success, you need the two working together. This is exactly what you get when you hire me, you get both sides of the coin. I code. I design. I solve Problems.
February 1, 2019 - For the past 8 months, I was the Drupal Technical Lead and Solutions Architect at a small company working mainly with Pfizer. As part of my role, I provided Enterprise level Drupal solutions and Architecture for large-scale Drupal projects. Guided technical discussions with clients, both technical and non-technical. Involved in pre-sales discussions for new projects. Developed customized technical presentations to High Level Executives. Focused on the web industry's best practices and authored company wide web standards for QA, SEO, Accessibility, best practices, web development and web performance.
Prior to that and for 2 years, I was the Senior Web Developer at Campbell Soup Company, responsible for all aspects of front-end and back-end development of Campbell's public facing websites and API's. Also managing third party providers and contractors and ensuring for their adherence to Campbell's web development standards and processes. I also supported Campbell's digital marketing efforts for the successful achievement of intended business outcomes. I developed Campbell’s web development standards and processes and integrated Accessibility standards into Campbell’s online presence.
As part of my responsibilities at Campbell's, I enforced accessibility standards for new websites, mitigated accessibility violations on existing public facing websites and trained co-workers and vendors on the relevant accessibility standards and authored technical standards documentation and procedures. I am thoroughly familiar with the use of assistive technologies across multiple platforms, including screen readers, magnification, read aloud tools and eye-gaze tracking. In addition, I am personally committed to digital accessibility since a family member depends on such accessibility tools and web accessibility.
Prior to that, I was the IT Application/Web Developer for the Office of Creative Services department at Rutgers University, responsible for programming and maintaining the department's multi-site Drupal Content Management System (60+ Websites). Collaborated with and provided technical support to peers and other staff members and project managers. Fixed technical issues and integrated new features as they arise through the department's Web Support ticketing system.
Prior to that, I was the Web Developer & Web Designer for the Princeton Neuroscience Institute and for the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics.
I wear multiple hats: Web Programmer, Web designer, Content Editor, User-Friendly Website Architect, SEO, Web Accessibility Specialist, and Web performance optimizer. I consider myself to be intellectually very curious and a "life-long" learner.
