As an interesting change of pace from a more corporate type environment, I ventured into my first NPO for an environmental organization. It was an interesting experience in the challenges applied to these charity based organizations.

During my time, I introduced methods which were highly successful in the business environment. Namely allowing a small group of individuals with varied backgrounds to collaborate better and achieve more as an organization.

My migration into a marketing role effectively brought me full circle and back to doing more of the type of work I did nearly a decade prior when I started at the company. With the PhotonMaster project in full production under Operations and the software aspect of the 'Analytics' department divided into a separate software division, the overall focus was shifting into procedural manufacturing and software development.

I was teamed up with two awesome marketing professionals and we created an excellent internal creative team. Managed directly by the CEO, we carried out various marketing endeavours.

My roles included;

Back in the role of designer, I created marketing materials under the direction of the CEO

Director of Analytics

I headed the development of what would become a new division of the company and the most important addition to the product line since the ATP kits were developed. The products included keystone hardware (PhotonMaster Luminometer) and software (LumiCalc and its derivatives).

The PhotonMaster luminometer is a photon detecting laboratory and portable field use device, capable of operating via USB - first of its kind. I managed, designed and developed the product from the ground up. It was done to solve the problem of needing a reliable and proprietary metering device for the assay test products.


Main Skills:

The PhotonMaster product exceeded projections upon release.

The PhotonMaster luminometer was designed from the ground up to correct issues with the Kikkoman C-110 luminometer. Most of the design was done at home, late a night using an early edition iPhone. CAD work was accomplished using what was avaialble, Google Sketchup. Software UI designs were art directed by the CEO.

As my role expanded to include IT Manager, my roles in design, marketing, and website management continued. With the added responsibility of overseeing the company's IT infrastructure, software, security and providing employee training and technical support.

'Do more with less' was my primary task. As such, I learned (on-short-order) to find ways to provide support and capabilities to the startup's employees, often without an available budget.

Technologies and platforms included;

When I attended the initial interview, it was not for a salary position, I went to sell my services as a graphic designer. However the charismatic, later to be CEO, convinced me to come on board full-time.

Initially hired to overhaul the website, my areas of responsibility quickly evolved to include;
