Goal oriented web developer with 15 years of experience with HTML, CSS and JavaScript. I've spent the last year working for the TurboTax marketing team at Intuit, performing a variety of tasks including building an interactive comparison chart, a re-usable alert widget for messaging and a social sharing tool.

Before Intuit, I spent five years working very heavily with JavaScript and jQuery, building an MVC for e-commerce web applications as well as an administrative UI. The eight years prior were spent building conventional e-commerce web sites. Success working with a small group in a task-oriented environment. Skilled designer with an emphasis on user interface/experience. Strengths include communication, problem-solving, multitasking and working well with others.

anyCommerce/Zoovy MVC

Objective: To build a javascript framework capable of powering both the merchant's storefronts as well as our own user interface.
Status: Ongoing.

My responsibilities on the project included building the majority of the client-side library which used a RESTful API to acquire information (product detail, page content, cart, etc) returned as JSON and present that to the user by running it through a proprietary templating engine. I also worked closely with the back-end developer on strategy, naming conventions and testing.

The repository for the entire framework can be found here.

Cart editor Coupon editor Marketplace manager Football Pool

Objective: To build a functional 'weekly pick' based football pool as a web-app.
Status: In development

The primary purpose of the project is to learn backbone and underscore as well as brush up on my PHP and MySQL. I built a non-app version of this several years ago and ran it for 5 seasons. My intent is to re-start this as an invite-only service, allowing for members to create their own 'party' (equivalent to a 'league' in fantasy football) to run separate pools.

The app itself allows each member to choose a winner for each game every week. The pick for a game must submitted before the that game starts or the user takes it as a loss. The user with the most correct picks after the last game of the week is the winner.

Where is it now? As of 4/25/2014, Google authentication is implemented along with an 'account' page where users can enter some personal information such as username. The Ability to create and/or join a party is built. The 'schedule' interface for choosing pics is started. In the process of getting the 2014 schedule in, showing the game and weekly winners on the 'show picks' page.

SerializeJSON Plugin

Objective: To be able to serialize a form or other element containing inputs into a hash.

There were a few plugins out there already that were close to what I wanted, but nothing exactly right. In addition to being able to run this on any element type, I also wanted to be able to pass a selector to get just elements that met a certain criteria, such as having been edited. Plus, I needed the ability to serialize the form with checkboxes as booleans.

A working sample can be found here.

Panel Widget

Objective: Easily build panels that could be opened/closed and maintain state.

This was built for the anyCommerce/Zoovy mvc, though the script below has been modified to work in any environment. It didn't take long after starting the administrative interface to realize I'd need a quick way to build stateful panels. I also wanted the means to be able to add additional buttons to the headers, next to toggle and close.

Sticky Tabs

Objective: To provide the means for users to 'take' lists or tables of data with them as then navigate the app.

This was built for the anyCommerce/Zoovy mvc. This was built for cases where large data sets needed to be edited individually and rather than going back and forth in a list mode, the sticky tab approach saved a few clicks.

A working sample can be found here.

Tab Widget

Objective: To build a non-id based tab script for use in a template environment and to maintain persistence through local storage and not changing the hash.

This was built for the anyCommerce/Zoovy mvc, though the script below has been modified to work in any environment. I found the jQuery UI tab script didn't play well with our app because it was very ID driven and my app would add multiple instances of a given template to the DOM at the same time. I use a lot of the same css as the jQuery UI tabs, however I modified the appearance a bit to have fewer lines (no container/border around the tabs themselves)
