Web Developer and Executive
As a Philadelphia web development pioneer in the mid-1990s, I remember meeting for drinks every Friday with the dozen or so members of the community. As an entrepreneur, executive and hands-on creator, I’ve been at the center from the beginning with strong technical skills and a marketing focus.
I’m a versatile web developer capable of handling virtually every aspect of the process. And I have executive experience.
I’m a solid manger of people, processes and finances. I hold an MBA with a concentration in marketing.
I’m technically proficient and can do complete websites on my own, including ecommerce and elearning sites. But I love to work in a team, too. People who have worked for me know I value and respect their expertise and I’m there to help provide resources and support as needed. Success is a collaborative process.
I’m comfortable working with people at all levels and love talking with clients—both helping the clients and managing their expectations.
In terms of solid specific skills, I’m a very experienced WordPress web developer, with related skills including some server management. I’m very capable of managing a team of developers and designers, something I did for about a decade.
When it comes to management, I not only love working with people, I’m obsessed about analyzing and improving processes. This happened when I was taking my MBA—I realized that the way things are done can limit—or improve—the results. All too often, processes are ignored because “that’s the way we’ve always done it.” That approach is, to me, a bad one.
WHAT I WOULD EXPECT FROM YOU
I expect to be paid fairly, but environment is more important to me than money.
I want to work with and/or manage people and, ideally, processes as well. I would love client interaction and I feel it’s necessary and beneficial to communicate across departments.
I both offer and expect respect for and from everyone. My focus is always to fix the problem and not the blame.
