I work for an internal agency at NBCUniversal that provides technology services to the company's many networks, studios, and brands.

As Software Architect, I've planned and built an open source, NodeJS-based Pattern Library System (pattern-library.github.io), which creates stackable and reusable component libraries, bundled with a GulpJS-based development environment. It was a cool thing.

During my years as Senior Dev Lead, I spearheaded NBC's Wordpress program, NBCUPress. We built and maintained a re-usable, share-able Wordpress deployment system to keep site styling and building away from CMS maintenance. Then we built a gazillion sites on it.
