Senior Web Projects Manager

Communications

I am responsible for managing several web and digital media initiatives at The Field Museum. These include The Field Museum website, mobile site/apps, exhibition/science microsites, intranet and other development projects. Schooled in various project management methodologies, nothing excites me more than crafting an agile and executable project plan. I enjoy leading a dedicated, innovative team in developing technical solutions, websites and applications that are both beautiful and intuitive.
