Front-end engineer with almost ten years of professional software development experience. I am passionate about creating polished web experiences, with a focus on responsive, accessible, and performant UX, and writing testable, readable, and maintainable code.
At the end of 2020 I left the relative comfort of Dropbox to join Common Room. Our mission is to empower companies to deepen relationships across their community, anywhere people are. I have been mostly working on building out the frontend of the product, with some occasional full stack efforts.
In September 2020 I was promoted to Senior Software Engineer in response to my years of hard work and leadership.
I work on a team responsible for the search and browse experiences on the web and desktop. As the senior front-end engineer on the team, I have worked on many projects, from a complete rewrite of the search UI, to improvements in accessibility and performance.
I have mentored an intern and many of the new hires on the team, empowering them to do their best work and become incredible productive members of the team.
I was one of the organizers of an internal JS conference, given presentations to the wider company on my work, and conducted over 50 interviews.
After Pebble was acquired by Fitbit I was responsible for planning and overseeing the end of life process for the existing Pebble web services. I also worked on designing the architecture for the new Fitbit appstore.
During my 2.5 years at Pebble, I worked on a variety of projects, including rebuilding the developer website from the ground up, designing and writing new features for the app store and developer portal, and architecting a brand new new analytics pipeline to build the foundation for new health data based products.
I designed, built, maintained, and supported an internal web application, which was responsible for all project management, evidence tracking and billing of clients. I participated in the collection, extraction and investigation of multiple forensic cases, and built custom applications for extracting email fragments from hard drives.
I learned the fundamentals of digital forensics and network security, including taking a forensic images of a variety of data sources, and the processes and methodologies of forensic analysis.
This course provided me with an extensive understanding of a wide range of topics in computer science, from digital electronics through to operating system design.
