I am an experienced software engineer with strong technical skills, a wide range of knowledge, and proven leadership abilities.
I value collaboration, team-work, efficiency and professionalism. I have lead, architected, and contributed to the successful launch of over a dozen web site and application projects.
A profile a coworker wrote about me when I became Director of Technology at Pixo
I often write little apps to learn a new framework. See my personal projects at github.com/mekane
I was part of the original team that built and launched Wolfram|Alpha. I also helped build and maintain the API and I was lead developer on the interactive widgets product.
As a software consultant for Pixo I worked on many client projects. Some of the bigger ones that I was technical lead or lead developer on were:
- CARLI - a set of three Angular apps and a custom back-end to manage a complex e-resource licensing workflow.
- UIUC Research IT Portal - a custom system to gather IT resources for researchers at the University of Illinois in one central place.
- UIC Red - highly customized WordPress multisite meant to provide a common platform and brand across the entire campus.
I have presented twice at the U of I Web Conference.
