Professional Summary:

I am a software developer who specializes in making websites easy to develop, merchandise, and manage.

Software Development Engineer Sep 2011Present Amazon Inc. Seattle, WA I was a member of high visibility team that owned the front page of and several of the site's widgets. While there, I worked heavily a framework that facilitated the monitoring, troubleshooting, creating, skinning, caching, and merchandising of widgets.

The framework greatly reduced the time it took developers to make a new widget. Widgets that would have usually taken 4 or 5 months to make from scratch took less than three weeks to make with the framework. Because the MVC framework decoupled service, business, and display logic from one another, creating a widget that was desktop, mobile, and cross page compatible was straight forward. Lastly, the framework had built in monitoring and troubleshooting that made it possible to debug widgets in emergency situations.

The framework is currently in use on the desktop gateway and Amazon mobile pages worldwide.
Software Development Intern Jun 2010Sep 2010 Amazon Inc. Seattle, WA

During my second internship at Amazon I added extra features to an existing widget known as the Automated Top Center Graphic or Auto TCG. The widget gave site merchandisers without designer resources or expertise the ability to create promotional graphics.

The largest feature I added to the widget was 'stretchy goodness'. This feature allowed the widget to display more products on wide screens and fewer products on narrow screens. To accomplish this task I had to learn JavaScript and Amazon internal platforms on the job in a matter of a couple of months. I also had to work with design and work with limited mentorship.

A second incarnation of the Auto TCG is used on several Amazon pages worldwide.
