Created custom wordpress sites for a variety of USC departments using HTML5, CSS3, JS and PHP that were responsive and met accessibility standards. I worked directly with clients, project managers and designers throughout the entire project life cycle. Attended client meetings to understand the user’s needs and provide guidance on how to meet those needs from a technical perspective. Provided input on wireframes, built the full site including customizable pages and widgets, and taught clients how they can maintain the site themselves from within Wordpress. Implemented numerous third party APIs, including Google Maps and feeds from Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and USC’s event calendar. Worked alongside designers to create the internal tools UI for the web services group and its clients including a calendar event submission form and front-end / UI standards that would be used across all school sites. Responsive design expert for all sites to be viewed on multiple platforms and devices.
