After earning an Associates Degree at Hussian School of Arts in Philadelphia, my art career began at an advertising specialties company in Lansdowne PA. Designing T-shirts, logos, art for everything from coffee mugs to road cases for seven years. During my time there I used tradition screen-printing preparations like a stat camera, press-type and rubylith. A co-worker, Richard Mahon, introduced me to my first PC when the company bought a Packard Bell with a 4MB hard drive, with CorelDRAW 1.2 on it. I never looked back after that.
After that I spent the next several years at various agencies, newspapers and magazine companies.
In 1994 I went to work for Community Professional Loudspeakers in Chester. I worked with some of the nicest, most professional people I've ever met there. I learned all about web technology as well as digital photography, cd authoring, QuarkXPress, and my bread-and-butter - Adobe Photoshop.
I reluctantly left Community in June of 1999 for employment at Comcast Spectacor in South Philadelphia. I worked for 6 years in the bowels of the legendary Spectrum as the designer for the Philadelphia Flyers Hockey Club. I redesigned the complex website and launched phantomshockey.com, the first website for the minor league hockey team, the Philadelphia Phantoms. I them designed and launched initial websites for several entities within Spectacor for instance Flyers SkateZone, SniderHockey.org, Global Spectrum and our corporate site comcast-spectacor.com.
After a few years I was made the Web Manager and managed a group of 2 full-timers, a contractor and different interns each semester. During that time my team developed a simple CMS that I sold to more than 20 of our corporate clients at arenas and convention centers around the country. In the first year I brought $180,000 worth of revenue into the company from the websites. Some of these are the Duke Energy Center in Cincinnati, the Clovis Civic Center in New Mexico and the Enid Event Center in Oklahoma. I was also responsible for designing front-end interfaces for a kiosk system that served video clips and stats throughout suites and club boxes in the Wells Fargo Center during games, as well as all print and advertising specialties for the I.T. Department.
My team was also responsible for building and designing a mobile application for the Wells Fargo Center patrons. I gave users locations of any food or drink within the building as well as restrooms and security locations.
In 2007 I was asked to Manage the network Team at Spectacor. This involved managing a group of 3, incredibly brilliant Network Engineers that I was proud to associate with. This team is responsible for the well-being of over 600 servers that gave access to buisiness systems for over 12,000 users throughout the country.
After leaving in 2014 I have served as an IT Tech for StrathHaven High School, Digital Marketing Manager at Elwyn, Digital Marketing Specialist at Franklin Mint Credit Union and most recently Marketing Manager for Hoffman's Exterminating.
I live in Media, Pennsylvania with my wonderful family and am very fortunate to have been blessed with what I am and have.
