I am a certified Optimizely (formerly Episerver) Developer and an Most Valued Professional (EMVP). Here is some info about my history with Episerver. You can find links to more of my Epi work below. Feel free to contact me about working together on any Episerver projects.

May 2013

In 2013 I started my career in web development at Adage Technologies. While there, I worked with multiple content management systems. The primary one being Episerver. I worked on building both CMS and Commerce sites.

December 2014

At the end of 2014, I switched companies to my current agency, Nansen. At Nansen I continued developing CMS and Commerce sites.

From 2015 to 2019, I continued working on the maintenance and architecture of Episerver sites. In 2015, 2017, and 2019, I earned Episerver certifications.

March 2018

In 2018, I was one of the architects of our digital innovation project, that won an award at Episerver's Ascend conference. You can view more info about the overall project on the Nansen website. I also did a writeup of some of the technical aspects of the project.

July 2019

In July, I was chosen to be an EMVP. This was in recognition of my contributions to the Episerver community. Everything from the projects I work on with my company, to blog posts, and forum comments.

October 2019

In October, I was chosen to speak at Episerver's Ascend conference in Miami. I did a presentation on machine learning and the future of Episerver that you can find on my blog. I also ran a lab that walked through how to setup a progressive web app (PWA) on the Mosey demo site.

April 2020

In April, I worked through several certifications provided by Episerver. I received certificates for completing their courses in Episerver Campaign for Editors as well as Episerver Personalization Development Fundamentals. These courses, as well as having developed several implementations leveraging those technologies, help Nansen as an organization be considered specialists in those areas.
