Senior Web Application Developer, Information Technology Services

About Me

I joined the Web Services Group at Carleton in 2016 after returning to Carleton through a position at the Science Education Resource Center. I have built websites for large and small businesses, and public and private institutions, and with over seven years of university-level teaching experience, I bring a wide variety of experiences back to Carleton.

In 2017, the web team began migrating all of Carleton’s websites from the Reason CMS to WordPress, starting with the award-winning Admissions website. In my role, I have worked from all the way in the back-end, integrating data sources from various campus systems, to the front-end display code, and wiring it all together in between. We have used an alphabet soup of technologies, including PHP, JavaScript, CSS (and Less, SASS, and PCSS), WebPack, Twig, Docker, Composer, Kubernetes, Node.js, GraphQL, and a variety of database servers and flavors, including MySQL, MSSQL, and Oracle. There is a lot to do in the project, but it has been immensely satisfying work to modernize Carleton’s websites.
