As the web team lead, I coordinate designers, developers, and data entry specialists to produce the most accurate website tracking COVID-19 in the United States. My team has 15-30 members at any time, within a project of over 300 volunteers.
I built and maintained custom web applications for the university, including Customer Relationship Management, Content Management Systems, business proecess mapping, and crazy organizational hierarchy widgets drawn with D3.
As a long-term member of the web team, I hired two of the first User Experience professionals in the entire California State University system. They direct all my development work. We are responsible for the entire campus website across all departments.
I maintained and integrated with old legacy systems. SOAP and CSV files are my frenemies. I've also built modern message queued or PubSubHub integration broker solutions for real-time integration.
My current development work is GatsbyJS, NodeJS, and React.
During my tenure at Cal State Monterey Bay, I developed a tool for students to register for placements in Service Learning and internship programs. The CSU Chancellor's office picked up the project, and I developed a single tool for all 24 campuses. After the project gained enough momentum, we hired a position to take it up full time.
Lived in an eight-foot-by-eight-foot shack on the Big Island of Hawaii. Grew jackfruit and lychee.
Built and maintained websites for the entire school district. Wrote scripts in Lasso for WebStar. None of these skills are at all useful anymore.
Converted legal documents from the state of California into a custom Post Script language.
I lead a rag-tag group of volunteers who are passionate about protecting the coastline and beaches. I write grants, manage communications, and build new programs for a growing conservation movement.
While I no longer do exhibits, I still practice printmaking, paper-cutting, and watercolors.
