Miami, FL

As a Digital Architect at Hard Rock Stadium, I support our Marketing, Digital, and IT teams at the operational level, in addition to acting as a subject matter expert around mobile apps, websites (primarily front-end), email, digital legal compliance, and digital tools for the broader organization. This role includes a wide range of responsibilities, but is best summarized as follows:

Business Processes

Technology empowers business leaders to execute on their visions. Supporting this journey through education and guidance of technical capabilities has a wide-reaching impact when successful: more reliable software architectures, greater alignment across teams, efficient automation, as well as better customer, client, and employee experiences.

Technical Capabilities

Digital leaders must continually forge paths forward across varied environments, supporting cross-functional concerns to improve, replace, and create the different technologies that underpin modern business. The lines blur between Marketing and IT when it comes to operation and maintenance of new tech, but this unique position allows for defining business pain points to articulate use cases and justify funding necessary to upgrade the technical environment.

Culture Shifts

Executive leadership sets out to establish a positive and engaging culture. Creating an environment for new technology means continually trying new ideas, new platforms, and facing the fear of potential failures, misses, and the unknown. Supporting an innovative culture for new technologies requires a collaborative workplace and the drive towards continuous upskilling or education. New technology is not just about the tech – people matter.

Freelance & Volunteer

8/2012 - 3/2016

MD, GA, & VA

As a freelancer, I assisted small businesses with their marketing and website development needs. This ranged from graphic design and social media marketing to coding and print assets. For some clients, the scope of work even included computer hardware MAC work.

Although I was no stranger to meeting rooms, presentations, and training groups of people, learning to understand how each business owner communicated and learned was critical to the success of these projects. Articulating succinctly what I knew or what was needed at a given step was important to keep the projects on track, and both parties aligned to the end goals. Setting boundaries, establishing deadlines, and learning about the different types of project management, were all skills that I grew from in different ways as a freelancer.

The dozen or so projects I worked on during this entrepreneurial time were unique experiences, and I'm grateful for the different perspectives that working for myself allowed me to experience.
