Hands-on technology leader that played the lead role in defining, designing, and developing an cutting-edge and robust line-of-business system.
I designed and developed a Website for a new laundry valet company. This involved designing, prototyping, and developing a highly usable registration wizard, a customer control panel, and a robust administrative backend. The company is no longer active, so the website has since been taken down (see my portfolio for screen shots). This is a good example of my wide range of abilities: database modeling, visual design, prototyping, content development, client-side interactivity, and the ASP.NET middle tier. I was literally a one-man show on this project.
