I am enamored with anything technology. I have dabbled with everything from corporate websites and AngularJS applications to mySQL databases and Android applications to PHP mail campaigns and even Visual Basic macros. I have published numerous jQuery plugins; one of my most popular creations, TableExport.js – “The simple, easy-to-implement plugin to export HTML tables to xlsx, xls, csv, and txt files” – receives, on average, 250 downloads a week.

Management Development Program
Thos. Somervile Co., Full-Time
As a new recruit for TSCO, the second largest plumbing/HVAC distributor in Virginia, I began my tenure as a Receiving Manager. My primary role was to track, verify, and inventory all incoming product to the Richmond branch. Within three months, I had demonstrated proficiency in both the knowledge of the product line and logistics structure of the branch and was promoted to Inside Sales Manager. In my new role I was directly responsible for all Inside Sales functions (~25% of branch revenue) in addition to all inter-branch transfers (outgoing material to other regional branches). My colloquial responsibilities were predominantly account management (bidding, quoting, and order fulfillment) but there was also a strong emphasis on technical plumbing design. Ancillary to account management, day-to-day function required that I was knowledgeable and certified in VA plumbing code/standards, and that I had the technical expertise to size water heaters and other commercial equipment, as well as understand pipe/tubing flow dynamics to a fundamental science to properly calculate piping/tubing diameter and pressure requirements for residential plumbing clients.
