    With over 12 years working at Portrait Innovations, I directed advertising creative, cultivated partner relationships, built design-tech departments, designed software platforms, and worked with engineers to build and maintain an entire e-commerce system from ground up.

    Perhaps most importantly, I offer a history of proven results as evidenced by my online portfolio as well as the following accomplishments through my latest employment:
    • Led multi-channel, national marketing campaign integrations (comprised of digital, social, email and print media).
    • Personally designed all high-fidelity interactive UI visuals accompanied by technical specifications.
    • Built an internal department to support monthly programming assets (technical specifications, JavaScript and XML updates, and all customer-facing copy and graphics).
    • Integrated 200+ custom products across executable software and online e-commerce platforms.
    • And More: Sourced and maintained vendor relationships; performed product photography; designed custom UI and product graphics; created and sourced product artwork; created client & server-side XML and JavaScript files for UI and backend product renderings; developed quality assurance program.
