Experience show all
Front-End Engineer, PageOnce
May 2012 - Current
I am a frontend engineer for the web application of PageOnce.
Front-End Engineer/Developer, LYLIF
March 2011 - June 2012
I was responsible for taking Photoshop (and Illustrator) mockups and building them into a Magento interface for LYLIF.com - A women's fashion e-commerce. Daily tasks involve anything from routine design updates to new features (written myself, or purchased extensions). I document bugs with bugzilla, and manage all backups. In addition, I photograph and edit product images, along with mocking up UI screenshots for new features. Other tasks include making coffee, cracking bad jokes, and 18 hours of fun for days at a time.
Front-End Designer/Developer, CPO Commerce
July 2010 - September 2011
My projects included migrating eBay and Amazon stores to their newly acquired Demandware platform. I would begin by drafting a mockup or two for the homepage. Once reviewed, and approved by the team I entered it into a staging environment. This was a great opportunity for me to work with a commercial CMS.
I designed and implemented each website on three week deadlines. This included homepages, banners, custom CMS pages, email newsletters and more.
Front-End Designer/Developer, DNA Couture
January 2009 - July 2011
DNA Couture needed a wholesale site for customers-only to promote new product, and liquidate excess stock. I designed, and developed a lightweight-easy to maintain magento site that they could select their featured products for the week, and show custom prices for logged in customers. The website continues to be a valuable resource for not only sales, but a catalog for international prospects.
Graphic Designer, 4over Inc
2006 - 2008
I was hired here as a job processor, and was later hired as a graphic designer. I created everything from web banners to trade-show banners. I used laser-cutting machines, prepared work for print on our offset-presses, and for magazines. This was my greatest learning experience as a young designer.

Advertising, Art Center of Pasadena
2007 - 2010
Art Center is where I matured as a designer. Although I never took a web-related class, I learned countless core lessons.
This school really kicked my ass, and showed me what it takes.
Later earned online recognition for advertising competition entry piece.

2004 - 2006
I studied graphic design at this school, and learned the ins-and-outs of several commercial applications.
