As the Lead Designer at Mediaphormedia I expanded my work in front-end development and design while overseeing and managing our design team before moving into the role of Lead Developer/Designer at The World Company (the company that created, then open sourced the Django web-framework). At the World Company, I have done a little bit of everything. From building and designing a Django‐based apartment search app to creating various frontend interfaces to troubleshooting slow database queries and improving fragile site performance. I provide direction on all of our design/development projects and review all of our other developers' work to ensure that it reaches our expectations and standards. I meet with the leadership of our company as well as other stakeholders to communicate our vision of design and web strategy. I have an important role in not only leading our design/development efforts, but also shaping the strategy and direction of our organizatinon as a whole. I am consulted on every significant design/development decision at The World Company, which is a testament to the organization's belief in my ability to make definitive decisions that support the overall strategy and direction of our company.
