Employment


Developer, PhotoShelter

2014 -

PhotoShelter is the leader in portfolio websites, ecommerce, marketing, and archiving tools for photographers. Talented coworkers and talented clients make this a neat place to work! I work on everything from bug fixes to launching new features, spanning both front end and back end code bases. Most importantly though, I helped found our homebrew beer club.

Here are some cool things I've worked on.

Client Services Associate, PhotoShelter

2012 - 2013

Provided support via phone and email to our entire client base; worked with helpdesk software to analyze and troubleshoot issues; hosted interactive training webinars; and translated user feedback into feature requests.

Producer, Speedy Spots Inc.

2005 - 2012

SpeedySpots is the nationally leading voiceover company for small and medium markets in the U.S. As a producer I mixed broadcast-ready audio spots; proofread and edited scripts; creatively collaborated with clients from cable companies, broadcast stations, and ad agencies; coached voice talent; trained staff; led the web app development team; and authored the blog.

Milestone: Launch of the web based ordering and processing app, for which I served a role similar to product manager, late in 2011. The devs reported that the efficiency of my communication during the preceding year saved tens of thousands of dollars in developmental costs. 100% of orders are now processed, tracked, and delivered online using this system.
