Profile: I’m an engineer/designer at heart and enjoy designing and building things, be they applications, user interfaces, or systems. I understand how systems work, and can envision improvements easily. I’m technically advanced, and also able to translate complex concepts into simpler descriptions to discuss with the broader team and stakeholders. I enjoy a challenge, and I strive for beauty in design and function.

Clipper Magazine, 1997 - July 2014


During my employment at Clipper, I contributed to the company in a number of roles:

  • Application Development
  • Prepress Expert
  • Workflow Improvement/Process Engineering
  • Training and Communication

Application Development

I took initiative to create applications to streamline the PrePress department, in order to reduce human workload and reduce errors, and reducing the need for additional staff. My programming skills grew to create applications to enable output of files with various automated tools, reducing manual input and saving time and money.

I developed applications completely tailored to the business needs and user needs. Applications were created with scale and efficiency in mind, leveraging mutliple computers to ramp up with weekly work loads.

See the application pages for detailed descriptions of their goals and execution:

Ad Template Maker, Flipper Exporter, Coupon Exporter


Workflow Improvement/Process Engineering

Over the span over several years I helped transform many manual processes into fully or semi-automated processes or applications. I also looked for ways to improve efficiency, increase access to assets, and make it easy for new team members to understand processes by creating easy-to-understand standards in the department.

  • Mac OS X expert
  • Automation systems to output PDF/ images/ text; file transmission, database automation, file conversions, xml output
  • Applescript automation
  • File organization, archiving, and search of multiple TB of data
  • Systems-level analysis of workflow; efficiency recommendations to department managers


Training & Communication

When new processes were implemented or I created a new application, I also developed training material across multiple media. My training has made users productive and efficient on Day 1 of new procedures. As the lead expert in Prepress, I communicate with my department and other department managers. I have excellent communication skills and am able to work with many types of personalities.

  • Live training seminars for new systems/processes
  • Typed documentation with images (PDFs, printouts)
  • Narrated videos/screencasts
  • Follow up or post-session files/practice material
  • Purchasing recommendations to managers
