Lead Full Stack Software Engineer

“Professional depth, or the mastery of a skill, is a necessity for any leader. Kelly runs most Adobe products as if they were an extension of his hand. But a leader with depth is just a one-trick pony. Kelly is a leader who possesses both depth and breadth.

I have worked with Kelly for more than a year and he demonstrates mastery across multiple disciplines. From creative strategy to corporate branding and building websites to visual design, Kelly is that rare individual who can offer the proof of a portfolio as opposed to the promise of a resumé. I am proud to offer my highest recommendation of Kelly.”

“Through Kelly’s creative and technical acumen, he has contributed to many projects as both a team member and a team lead. He has fostered great relationships between co-workers and vendors and builds on those relationships to help ensure success throughout project completion.

Kelly has a fantastically diverse background which has enabled his involvement in many projects including website design and development, promotions for international car shows, numerous video productions and of course UX/UI for future in-vehicle infotainment systems for Jaguar Land Rover.”

In the short time that I’ve worked with Kelly, He’s demonstrated great leadership and work ethic. Kelly provided the team with ample UX collateral and animations that drove feature proposals home with stakeholders at JLR. He was always willing to take on projects that benefit projects and the team.

Kelly is also a team player and has built great relationships across the Portland site. I truly enjoyed working with him at JLR.
