Description: With over 13 years of ecommerce experience, I have been involved in many design and functional projects. I was the lead for web functionality and product development at two companies. I drove changes to primary conversion areas on sites, such as the product page, shop cart, checkout, baby registry and a mobile site. Many of the changes I wrote the functional specifications as well as coded and designed most of the frontend ui elements. Past project examples are, but not limited to: checkout redesign, shopcart redesign, product page redesign, baby registry in-house integration and design, as well as several Magento upgrades and module installations. In addition, I have crafted site category structure and implemented or maintained many third-party systems. Usability testing and user-focused design practices have been something I try to implement at every company I work at and every project I take on. My most recent project was a full site redesign where I took PSD files from a designer and coded the entire implementation.
