ESPN.com – (2007-present)
I joined ESPN.com shortly after graduation as a web developer. My role includes supporting and maintaining existing pages, writing specs and proposals for new features, and writing scripts to build the front-end of the Web site. As a member of the site development/editorial team, I work working with editors, designers, and software engineers to create editorial packages and pages with automated scores and statistics. Some of the projects I worked on since joining ESPN.com are the ESPN blog network (including TrueHoop), the 2007 College Bowls package, the 2008 NCAA Tournament package, and the 2008 Beijing Olympics package.
The Daily Collegian Online – (2005-2007)
Throughout my college career I worked for The Daily Collegian as a reporter, editor, and Web developer. In my senior year I redesigned The Daily Collegian Online home page and helped install a new content management system using MovableType and ASP.net. As Web chief I helped promote original online content, including breaking news updates and staff blogs. During this time I helped produce online packages for the mid-term elections, the Outback Bowl, the 2007 Dance Marathon, and the Virginia Tech shootings. Many of these improvements were spurred by a report I co-wrote outlining a strategy for newspaper’s future online. As a freshman I completed the Collegian candidate training program and spent a semester reporting on the women’s tennis team. The Daily Collegian has a print circulation of 20,000 and The Daily Collegian Online reaches more than 10,000 visitors daily.

IST Learning Initiatives – (2005-2007)
In my sophomore year I began working with the Learning Initiatives Web site team. The Web site is a tool for students and faculty to help them work in a problem based learning environment and facilitate team-based projects. In my junior year I took a lead role in the group and redesigned the Web site using a CSS table-less design and PHP includes to make site maintinence easier. Other projects included installing WikkaWiki and WordPress blogs. In addition to my technical responsibilities, I helped conduct focus groups and worked on publicity for the Web site.
Karakung Swim Club – (2005-2006)
Karakung Swim Club was my summer employment for five years and gave me an opportunity to use my computer skills to develop a Web site for the club. In addition to serving as head lifeguard, I developed a website for the swim club to help communicate better with members. The site was built using PHP and mySQL to keep the site easy to maintain. I ialso integrated a WordPress blog and PHP iCalendar into the site to help automate the news and calendar sections.
Brookline Civic – (2001-2003)
Three years ago I saw an announcement in the Brookline Civic Association’s newsletter asking for someone to build a website for their baseball leagues. I volunteered and have kept the site updated for them ever since. It lets parents print out a web page version of the registration form instead of attending an in-person registration session. When I went off to college a parent with web experience volunteered to take over the site.
Quiet Kid (Personal Website) – (1998-2006)
Since seventh grade I taught myself HTML with this my personal home page. The site changed a lot since the beginning with a variety of designs and hosts over the years. In March of 2003, I received a Verizon’s Site of the Month Award for a version of Steve Online I created with their SiteBuilder tool.
