I'm a web developer by trade and a retail obsessed geek by nature. I've been making websites since 1998 and am extremely passionate about crafting great user experiences on the web in an effort to increase retail sales and connect with customers. I have seen the development and maturity of social media first hand. I get it and I understand it because I live it.
These days I find myself combining my love of web development with the nuances of the retail industry by working with several top name retailers on their e-commerce storefronts, on the ATG commerce platform, in a front-end development and strategy role. I was part of the team that developed the Tommy Hilfiger for iPhone application which was a bronze finalist for Best Mobile Application in the 2010 NRF/Shop.org RACIE Awards [warning: Flash content].
In addition to e-commerce web development, I also have over three years of retail visual merchandising and store-level operations experience. This experience, interacting with customers and driving sales, is the basis for the passion I have for e-commerce sales and forging better customer relationship.
