Working at a fast growing ad agency, you have to learn how to be nimble and jump from project to project on a moments notice. Sometimes, this means switching between 6, 7 or more projects a day. As a web developer, this means opening the project on my preferred code editor, opening a terminal for git, grunt and all other terminal commands as well as sometimes opening the folder in finder when we’re working on front end. Enter Kitty Launcher!
Who am I? I am someone who loves art and innovation. Since I was very young, I loved games, toys, stories, animation, and computers so naturally I went to the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale and received my Bachelor’s in Media Arts and Animation. I got a job as a graphic designer that eventually led to a position as a Web Designer and then Web Developer. I began expanding my knowledge-base to include web and application development, server configurations, information architecture, multifaceted campaign strategy and everything in between.
I have worked on a variety of digital executions, including web sites, applications, and rich-media campaigns, for iconic brands such as Burger King, Boehringer Ingelheim, Miami Dolphins, Google, Pernod Ricard, Shutterfly, NBCUniversal and others.
