Ohio Christian University, Circleville Ohio February 2014 – Present
Most of my time at OCU involves devising and integrating SONIS (School Information Management System) with our web properties, building API’s via ColdFusion and PHP as well as automated reporting/marketing systems with standard PHP or Drupal. Most of our off site properties interact with Sonis via simple Ajax calls and XML/JSON Objects. Using the open source application OsTicket, we heavily modified the application to interface with SONIS and launched the Answer Center’s Ticketing System. Other projects include a redesigned student portal, a Personalized URL system/website for prospects/lead generation, Analytics & Social Media dashboards and a Drupal 7 Landing Page framework for rapid page deployment. With these systems in place, our team of three went from spending $500 per month on Pay Per Click advertising generating less than 10 leads to spending $184,000/monthly generating 3200 leads each month.

Proprietary Applications, PHP, Html5, Css3, WordPress
The three years spent with Battelle involved as much hardware as it did software. Mostly we would modify Proprietary systems to pull additional functionality not included off the shelf. The Edstrom automation system was adjusted to send a of round robin phone call on alert. We also engineered the equipment tracking and ticketing system and a WordPress/SharePoint syncing plugin for internal documentation management.
