    NIC, Inc. (Subsidiary: Pennsylvania Interactive / PAI)

    March 18, 2013 - Present

    Title: Web and Mobile Designer

    While working at PAI I designed and developed several responsive web sites and applications running in either the .NET environment or MS Sharepoint 2010. All of the applications that we developed were ADA (508) compliant as per the requirement of the government. In order to reduce development time we used a responsive web framework to allow web sites to display across multiple devices without the need for large amounts of recoding. In order to quickly build mobile applications acroos multiple platforms, I used Cordova with various plugins to achieve native functionality and Adobe's AIR mobile packager, along with HTML 5, CSS3, JavaScript, and JQuery.

    I worked with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to design and build several state agency web sites - including:

    • (The resource portal that links to all other Pennsylvania agency resources)
    • (The site of PA Governor, Tom Wolf)
    • (A resource for business owners in Pennsylvania)

    and several others...

    My part in the previously mentioned web sites was design and front-end work, though I also developed several mobile applications for various departments within Pennsylvania government; including:
