From 1996-2006, I worked as the website designer for the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) as part of a 3-person team of comprising myself, a webmaster, and a web developer. Near the end of my time there, we added a coder, a designer, and a content author.

For about 3 years prior to my position on the web team, I was the managing editor of the NBAA Digest newsletter, and also designed brochures, booklets, and flyers for the association.

I started working at NBAA just out of college and during my tenure had the opportunity to grow up alongside the Internet as it changed from table-based layouts to CSS, as it embraced and then evolved from Flash to better tools, and as it grew from hand-crafted HTML to complex CMS-driven database ecosystems.

As a result, I spent 10 years organizing vast amounts of information in a heavily user-centric focused community—experience that has been foundational to the content strategy work I carry out every day in my current position as a content strategist.
