Was tasked with and completed the revamping of Whitehat's entire Order Entry System OES . The OES system had been designed by a former employee who was sound in programming but lacked design experience, so I, in coordination with the marketing director, enhanced the entire look of the site. The site also had functional problems that prevented it from working in various browsers due to the requirement of Flash I replaced all elements of Flash and re-worked these functions thus making the app cross-browser compatible. For this work I was given high praise by my colleagues superiors.

Platform Engineer / Database Administrator
As the Platform Engineer of IWS, I was responsible for operating, maintaining, enhancing documenting the company's marketing email delivery system, internal report applications and its auxiliary maintenance processes. The Platform consisted of: Lyris List Manager as the web-based email delivery application Microsoft SQL 2008 R2 as the backed end repository Amazon S3 as the backup cloud storage system Equal Logic SAN consisting of 4 servers that host the platform several custom C web applications.
Apart of a two man team who were the go-to-guys for an organization of about two dozen employees when it came to the email delivery portion of the IWS marketing campaign. IWS' clients were mostly political entities, so quick responses to the ever-changing political landscape especially during election season , were commonplace requiring quality campaign content delivery.
Solely responsible for creating and optimizing dozens of SQL scripts processes used for the import export of email lists received from clients consisting of name, email and sometimes other demographic data such as political party which came often in random formats. The creation and refining of these scripts gave IWS the ability to increase delivery rates and improve the delivery process overall.

Worked with a team that included three separate entities to develop a web-based surveillance application for monitoring and tracking cases involving the outbreak of H1N1, better known as Swine Flu .

As a member of the client staff, I took the technical lead in completing the first phase of the Flu Management System , which required a great deal of coordination especially in regards to modifying and utilizing a very complex third normal form multi-database SQL back-end in a very short amount of time, dealing with the time-sensitive H1N1 outbreak, which was at the time at record numbers world-wide.
Also in the spring of 2009 during the first wave of Swine Flu, I created an application that allowed Public Health to track swine flu in all county public and charter schools allowing the Director of Public Health the ability to make a decision to close a school where an outbreak got out of hand. This application was written in C .NET and Ajax with a SQL database back end.
Developed, tested and deployed to production a reporting application for the Office of Vital Records dealing with highly sensitive confidential information in the VB.NET programming language. The purpose of this application was for quality assurance and Managing For Results or MFRs. This involved migrating data daily from the state which is in oracle to the county which is in SQL.
