Roles & Responsibilities:
My main role is developing the higher-level internal processes for our company and the systems needed to implement them, including CRM and software development. I also oversee all of the web development with our team of engineers and take care of our IT department (you could say I am the go to “the internet isn’t working” guy).
iCareSafely was a project where we needed to integrate an e-learning management system into the company’s marketing site. I custom-built the functionality required for it and had tremendous success for the client.
At OCG, most proud of:
We have such a collaborative and creative environment here. Our in-house development team gives us an edge that other agencies don’t have. It’s because of this that we have the capability to tackle any project, whether basic web design or full-on web application development. We’re quite literally a one-stop shop.
Describe favorite client:
To me, a good client has a solid vision of the services and products they’re offering. They know their audience and are willing to work closely to collaborate on the projects they’ve hired us for.
Describe the “agency of the future”:
An agency of the future isn’t afraid of change. It’s a group of people that will embrace and incorporate new technologies and new approaches that provide solutions for our clients, whether they are readily available or we have to build them ourselves.
I have 25 years of experience in computer programming, that means I can write in anything from Assembly, all the way to C++ and Java.
I enjoy music and the outdoors. I play drums in the band, Alias Smith, with my wife on lead vocals.
Education & Certification:
Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Nevada, Reno.
