What I’m up to
I recently became responsible for software quality at Quidel. And before that, I was in charge of web development for a few years. I also built and maintain a key system (MyQuidel.com) delivering software updates to tens of thousands of medical device instruments.
From 2007-2015 I co-founded and ran Best Rank, Inc. (SEO + Web Design). My team and I helped people grow their businesses through improved online visibility. I created Best Rank’s original SEO service offering + built over 100 web/e-commerce sites during my tenure.
From 2005-2007 while working on my MBA at SDSU (Information Systems) I built the original software platform powering ESQ Sites and after grad school spent time developing Web Applications at Adicio.
From 2000-2004 while working on my Computer Science undergrad degree, I served as Web Master for the Athletics and Campus Police Departments at Cal State San Marcos.
