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 e-commerce store management and front-end development.
Right now, I am a 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, marketing e-mails & a web app.
On the weekends, I operate Club Circuit DJ, my professional wedding DJ business. 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.
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 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 role" to make sure everything is handled.
