Huge Inc.

Sr. UI Engineer

I was hired within the division of Huge Inc. called StudioXL, which services all digital marketing needs for Google. My time was divided into three core practices.

Rapid prototyping.
To help the client get a clear vision of what was being offered, I would work directly with the Creative team and create workable prototypes that the client could not only see, but interact with.

Production Code.
In order to get some of my prototypes into production ready code, I would take responsibility in creating production ready code that checks through validation systems as well as peer reviews.

Mentor & Educate.
During my first months at Huge Inc. I was tasked with creating a Journeyship for animation. I organized two semesters with classes of a dozen+ students (employees). The classes ranged on all aspects of animation: from using libraries like GSAP or only CSS.

Proof of concepts to A/B testing – experienced in rapid versioned outputs. Ability to increase the feasibility of integrating prototypes into your systems (reducing throwaway code).

Pitch Collaborator

Ability to transform concepts into working examples quickly. A time crunch is one of my favorite types of challenges.
