I am highly experienced in the following areas:
- Information Architecture and User Interface design and development for the web.
- Project Management for web and web-related projects, in terms of leading development, leading projects overall, and dealing with version control, usability, web standards, and quality assurance issues.
I have excellent organizational and knowledge management skills—Metaweb’s core mission involves the organization of knowledge; I created and maintained internal knowledge bases at Nimblefish and previous companies; and in college, I helped found the UCD Internet Society (to provide undergraduate students with Internet access) and ran the UCD English Literary Society.
I have excellent reading, proofreading, editing, and compositional skills.
Wrote How to Cheat in the Leaving Certificate, a full-length, commercially-released, critically-acclaimed Irish feature film.
