I lead a development team, comprised of highly talented individuals who design, prototype and develop a wide variety of templates, websites and applications for use at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Some of my daily activities include...

  • Working closely with the User Experience team on interfaces, designs, and best practices
  • Detailed work with Section 508 and WCAG 2.0 (aXe, WebAIM, etc...)
  • Keeping the team up-to-date with current industry practices and standards
  • Evaluation of tools and technologies for use in development and security
  • Automated testing and evaluation of production code
  • Code and peer reviews
  • Interviews and on-boarding of new team members
  • Creating new tools for team members to work with
    • Grunt and Gulp build systems
    • Tools for prototyping, inspecting or editing new and existing content

When the time permits, I also manage to write some code. Currently leading work on a new Template for the CDC.gov website.
