Posso

CMS Developer | User Experience Engineer | Technology Educator

A JavaScript full-stack developer with over 10 years of expertise in creating enterprise on-line experiences. My methodology of development is based on writing maintainable code with a DevOps first mindset. My formal art & design training taught me to carefully consider my audience and create designs and applications that bring value to the user. In addition to web development, the advent of virtual reality has opened new frontiers in the areas of coding and user interfaces for immersive applications. Moreover, as an avid learner, I have taught workshops and courses in person and on-line at colleges and universities.
