In 2012, I graduated from University of Illinois at Chicago with a Bachelor's in Marketing. During my academics, I consulted to several firms on social media marketing and market research. Upon completion of my degree, I hopped on-board at InnerWorkings as an eCommerce Implementation Specialist with primary roles in web-design and front-end development.
Right now, I'm the Front-End .NET Web Developer for CraftJack, Inc. I implement designs spanning our business operations including high traffic landing pages, a popular home improvement blog & a web app.
On the weekends, I operate and develop Club Circuit DJ, my professional wedding DJ business. Recently, CBS featured my business as (one of the) "Best DJs For Your Event In Chicago". Club Circuit Wedding DJ maintains a 5-star average rating on yelpYelp.
I live and work out of my home office in Evanston, IL. I am entertained with beer games, people-watching and unboxing Amazon Prime packages.
In my experience, I've seen "new" web practices become obsolete rather quickly, so I've taken a meta approach to self-development. I'm adapted to learn new systems at an accelerated rate as opposed to relying on one particular method.
I like driving my committed projects all the way to completion. I'm inclined to step out of my "assigned duties" to ensure an amazing client experience.
