Integrations help you build revenue by building on others' work. I will help you build your software and integrate it with others in a cost-effective, incremental approach.
I stand at the intersection of business goals, customer needs, and technical possibilities.
Working in startups, I gained experience supporting clients through advanced challenges and highly technical problems. I move fast, build consensus, clarify, and get people on the same page.
The Good Stuff
Project Tracking Dashboard. I designed and implemented this dashboard to provide client leadership a place to check in and showcase my team's progress on their project.
Presenting an API Design Initiative. I created this presentation to win teams over to an API-first design with a unified design standard.
API Design Standard. To provide a superior user experience for developers, I assembled and led an ad hoc team of 20 execs, managers, and engineers to develop and promote a standard for a unified API standard. This document resulted from those sessions.
Hypothetical PRD. I wrote this brief product requirements document to show my thoughts on specs. It is for hypothetical customization work for a hypothetical client's requirements for a hypothetical content management system.
Pitch for Product Improvements. I created this slide deck to walk the audience through problems in their web site and web application and how I would prioritize solutions.
Embed in 60 Seconds. (🎬) I created this video while at Zoomdata to show non-technical audiences how easily their tech teams could use our product.
Anatomy of a Good Ticket. In this quick blog post, I describe and give examples for what goes into a good user story or ticket for a modern software development team.
