I am a Boston-based, Senior UX Developer with over 15 years of Internet industry experience. Over the years, I've worked at many different types of companies, both as a contractor/consultant as well as an employee. I've worked on both corporate and client sites, survived the Dotcom era, and seen many things change.
I've worn many hats in my career. I like getting my hands dirty in the front-end side of things (HTML, CSS code) but I really enjoy working with creative folks on layout, design concepts, user interactions, and usability. In addition, I like to work with (and learn from) back-end technology types to round out my full product development lifecycle experience. (Basically, I like to use both sides of my brain... and enjoy a career that allows me to utilize both sides.) I also enjoy working on marketing and client strategies as well as being a leader and mentor to others.
In short, I enjoy coding (and will continue to code) but, I have a lot more to offer than just solid code. :)
In 1998, as I was leaving my first "real world" job, one of the account directors that I worked with advised me that I should do something besides HTML; that HTML was going away and I needed to pick a direction that was purely creative, technology, or management. Well, I can safely say that HTML is still around (albeit, with a slightly different flavor) and I'm still coding it in this ever-evolving industry. I guess the more things change, the more things stay the same.
