I am a web & ux designer and front end web developer for the world's largest medical device manufacturer, Medtronic. At this grandios company, I work my magic/wizardry on the Minimally Invasive Therapies website, formerly known as Covidien. The magic, etc. that I work on this beast includes designing its functionality and aesthetic quality.
(For normal english speaking technical folk, I create wireframes and color mock ups, do some prototyping, and sometimes I even get my hands dirty with some front end web development.)
I hail from the east coast, but now I live in the mountains. I love sports, quoting movies, and staying active. long walks on the beach aren't too bad either. I also love traveling to new places, exploring the outdoors, eating lots of carbs, and not capitalizing properly because sometimes you have to break the rules.
I completed my undergrad in massachusetts and earned my masters degree in maryland. I am a former college football player and cats and dogs rock....hard.
Also...I like professional wrestling.
