I've implemented many best practices throughout my tenure, starting with a single-page app built with the first REST-based APIs.
I orchestrated large rewrites from JSPs to jQuery to AngularJS to Angular. I also built out continuous integraton for the front-end, migrating from Ant to Grunt then Webpack/Angular CLI.
I created a shared UI library (hosted on our private npm repo), to help provide consitency across all apps and development teams. The library has a live styleguide with code snippets and documentation.
I spend most of my time now training developers and creating new features in our UI library,
I focused primarily on auto insurance quoting applications. The first product I worked on was a web app to replace the mainframe "green screen" product the agents used. The second was an all new application for the general public to get quotes, which was a first for the company. Both these apps were Java/JSP/jQueryUI.
I'm an avid runner. I enjoy running wherever I go, my favorite place has been the Mackinac Bridge.
I love music and play guitar in a band. Pearl Jam, Stone Temple Pilots, and the Beatles are always in heavy rotation.
Like many developers, I love video games. If I'm holding a controller, there's a good chance I'm playing a Legend of Zelda game.
