About Me

I'm a Front-End Engineer with 9 years of experience spanning multiple industries and departments. I have strong communication skills, a entrepreneurship degree, and experience in all aspects of launching and running a business. Always a strong proponent for change, I will help you achieve your goals as you help me achieve mine.

Philosophy

All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

Contract Work

Little Poppy Co

I came into this project late. There were several issues including jQuery incompatibility issues and bootstrap integration problems. I addressed all of the crucial issues as well as updated the UI to make it match the comps and be more responsive.

Bellamoi Boutique

The client was having some problems implementing template changes in Volusion and changing the checkout process. I made the modifications they requested and provided guidance on SEO, SEM and Social Media Marketing.

Bright Water Foundation

I was initially contacted by the Bright Water Foundation to "finish" a site that they were working on. This led to a complete redesign of the site, implementation of the new site in WordPress, and migrating the hosting. All at a discount to help their organization move forward.

Utah State Department of Health - Opioid Campaign

GumCo contacted me about building out the Opidemic website for the Utah State Department of Health. It was an ambitious project with a three week deadline for the initial site but we powered through it in time for them to launch a campaign at a conference. It was built on WordPress and hosted on my Amazon Web Services account.

Code Savvy Consulting

Code Savvy is a new consulting firm looking to build their online presence through a website. I threw the site together for them in a weekend based on a theme they selected.

Utah School and Institutional Trust Funds Office

GumCo contacted me about building out the website for SITFO. They were looking to raise awareness for an upcoming amendment to their charter in the 2016 election. They were looking for a simple site to help convey their message to a broad audience. It was built on WordPress.

GumCo

Having done a considerable amount of work for GumCo's clients they approached me about fixing some of the issues on their site. I fixed the immediate issues and encouraged them to go down the path to a complete rewrite.

Vislevel

VisLevel is a startup looking to revolutionize the way businesses handle task management. I built the website and the application for them as well as their API.

The Sweet Tooth Fairy

GumCo contacted me about this project as a potentially massive project. The Sweet Tooth Fairy was wanting to change their website and switch ecommerce platforms. I built the site on Mura CMS and migrated them from GoDaddy to Temedy for eCommerce.

Temedy

Temedy is an eCommerce platform that needed to be migrated to the cloud. I performed the cloud migration and built the new angular based admin and API for the platform.

Utah State Treasurer - Unclaimed Property Division

GumCo contacted me about building the website. It's built in Sitefinity CMS and hosted on the State's servers.

High Country Adventure

I performed two redesigns of the High Country Adventure website over the past decade. The latest version is built on Mura CMS.

Xcel Fitness

Xcel was hosted on a personal hosting account. I migrated it to a new hosting account and performed some UI updates.

Alliance Probation

The Go Travel Sites

The Go Travel Sites were integrating with a web scraping company but needed a system to automate the process. I designed and built a multi-threaded ColdFusion system to manage those requests and process them.
