OBJECTIVE: To increase my challenges and allow more creativity in a web based project management position.

BACKGROUND

With 10 years behind me in the senior web group manager’s position at Verity, Inc being acquired by Autonomy, I can bring my web management and hands on skills to take your projects in the right direction. I have been in charge of all the international implementations of www.verity.com and all of the external sites associated with it. Working with Autonomy’s marketing team, I have been involved with many decisions on a higher level than just the website. Also, I have taken part in many CMS implementations to drive the website and intranet, Stellent and TeamSite to note a few. The intranet is also under my management. I work closely with developers and strategy owners in order to make an ideal intranet that allows employees to find the information they are looking for. Autonomy is about enterprise search so we always need to execute properly. Dealing with many different software products, I can make high level decisions on what makes sense in different scenarios.

As for technologies I am quite comfortable with PHP/MySQL infrastructure and have developed many applications with the two. JSP is my second choice for making web apps followed by ASP/.NET. I have dealt with development/staging/production environments and worked quite closely with IT teams for setting up and mapping out site architectures.

I have a strong passion for making websites even more usable by implementing Web Standards and using strong CSS layouts with clean and intuitive navigation, keeping sites friendly and interactive. Less is more in many web scenarios.
