I am a vegan UI Engineer with over 13 years of demonstrated expertise in producing mobile-first, consumer-facing web applications as well as internal data-analysis and user-management tools using Javascript, CSS, HTML5, Java Technologies (Struts, Tiles, JSP, Spring), PHP (Symfony and Laravel), XML, and SQL. I enjoy a good technical challenge and truly delight in building tools that will be useful to others. I started this site to connect with other vegan web professionals who are also in search of collaborative project opportunities.

My professional background includes working at the groundbreaking start-up, LightSurf (later acquired by VeriSign and then by Syniverse Technologies), where I contributed to the development of one of the first mobile picture sharing applications in the world. I have also worked on projects at organizations both large and small, including providing and designing data analysis tools within Human Resources at University of California, Santa Cruz; developing online content for Fatbrain.com; enhancing Calendar functionality and programmatically building dynamic Travel channel content at AoL; designing and building a secure, electronic gift card exchange at Plastic Jungle; modernizing and simplifying the UI for large-file sharing at Hightail (formerly YouSendIt); building a query/reporting interface for SunSpec Alliance; and most recently, developing in-house tools and Facebook integration for GPS and health management apps at Fullpower/MotionX. I have also done volunteer web work for Santa Cruz Children’s Museum of Discovery, assisting them in their initial launch phase, with both server and client-side tasks.

I would love to collaborate on a project with you! Contact me to get started.
