I am a web developer working in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have spent most of the past twenty years as a lead or sole tech within marketing departments. I enjoy bringing order to chaos. Much of my work has been client facing, interacting directly with stakeholders and other producers. Together we have turned business needs and brand identities into successful websites and web applications. I am experienced at working in high stress, clutch situations; I have participated in global product launches, run multiple camera live video shoots, and been with several startups as they have scaled into large companies.

2K Games is a video game publisher of titles such as Borderlands, Civilization, and NBA 2K. I was the first full time web developer in 2K's marketing department. Previous to my arrival, sites were built through managed agencies. After implementing basic processes, source control, and tightening security, I was promoted and my team got a second developer. Together, we modified a centralized CMS, set it up as a REST API, and built a continuous deploy process using Amazon's AWS services. We were then able to consolidate our content editing and localization efforts and the content machine became much more robust. The system we built is still in use today and has expanded to support many other features in the 2K ecosystem.
