Dumont Security Website
Dumont Security website redesign involving Drupal 7 web design & development, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and a responsive design using a Bootstrap sub-theme.
Future Access Inc. hired me to consult at the City of Hamilton (and remotely) with their new web development team migrating their website and numerous web services to the Drupal 7 content management system.
I worked closely with the product owner and project manager in high-level discussions regarding web development best practices, procedures, goals and objectives for the project.
Day-by-day I worked with the other analysts on the team under the Agile development methodology: designing, developing, and implementing Drupal 7 software solutions. My daily work consisted of research and analysis, discussions, development, implementation, documentation, integration scheduling and testing, ticketing with remote resources, one-on-one and group Drupal 7 training and debug sessions. On the team I contributed to daily stand-up meetings and biweekly project reviews: presenting, discussing and reflecting on the past and future two weeks.
Sport On The Go iOS App and Website
Sport On The Go is an iOS app and website for finding and following local sporting events. It connects users and event organizers who share live updates from sporting events.
Working closely with the project manager and marketing department, I led a team of iOS developers to produce the iOS app Sport On The Go, released in January 2013. It has gone through several iterations since.
During this time I have had a chance to natively code in Xcode using Objective-C programming language. I also created and maintained a web service for the website and apps to communicate through, with common API to access the database. For this I coded extensively in MySQL, PHP and HTML.

Simbotics Chairman's Video
Simbotics is celebrating our 10th season in FIRST and our submission looks back on all that we’ve accomplished on our team, within our community, and throughout the world. We're proud to showcase to the FIRST community a side to our team that may not always be seen, but is crucial to our success on and off the field. Our students and mentors share a special relationship through our Big Simbot, Little Simbot program and we’re humbled to be able to share that with the FIRST community.
As the director and editor of the video, I was in charge of the vision of the project. I conducted hours of interviews and meticulously edited it down to an exciting 3-minute video. The work paid off when it was played in front of 2,343 robotics teams from 12 countries at the FIRST Robotics World Championship in St. Louis, IL in April of 2012.
