Below is an overview of my employment opportunities in this industry, past and present. This does not include side-projects or self-employment, only experience gained while working at other companies (again, not including my own.)
For a complete listing of my actual working experiences at each company, please visit my resumé.
Employment Dates: August 2000 - Present
Senior Web / Application Developer & Network Administrator
My role in the company has grown well beyond the initial position I was hired for. It has helped me to achieve a deeper understanding of the skills I currently possess. What I believe to be "taking it to the next level" by understanding how my code / scripts interacts with the other intricacies that comprise and complete a web site / application, system, network, etc.
I am responsible for implementing and maintaining company and client web sites / applications, networks, and providing support. Common daily functions include:
- Database creation and maintenance
- Network administration such as Exchange, Active Directory, DNS, managing firewalls, maintaining backups, and installing new software and hardware
- Audio and video editing
- Design and information architecture
Company: Third Eye Media Production Co.
Employment Dates: January 1999 - August 2000
Web Site Developer & Senior Flash Animator
My primary role in the company was to translate designs for the Internet (i.e. make web sites), while acting as a liaison and implementer between middleware and back-end teams. I worked closely (sometimes directly) with clients to help evaluate and achieve the project goals while providing a realistic assessment of the efforts and technologies required to complete the project.
I was responsible for implementing and maintaining company and client web sites, researching and learning newly emerging technologies and applications, helping to provide a new branding image for the company, and creating interactive CD-ROMS. Common daily functions included:
- Designing and scripting new Flash animations including a puzzle game I created
- Audio and video editing
- Creating interactive and self-installing CD-ROM projects
My other work experiences have all been side-projects or self-employed.
