Sir David of Lee

Who I am

My name is Dave Lee. I am currently the Associate Director of Technology at MullenLowe Boston.

At MullenLowe I manage the Boston Development/QA team and help lead projects across all of our clients.

Building quality interactive experiences should always be a group effort, not a competition.

I work constantly to ensure our team is well equipped to meet any problems head-on with confidence. No matter how busy I am on any given day, I make sure I'm always available to help anyone or jump into any meetings.

As the Associate Director of Technology I strive to ensure our team has everything we need to ensure we're deliverint the best experiences across all devices and platforms. I manage Developers and Quality Assurance Specialists. We work directly with Art Directors, Copywriter, and Designers to ensure we both deliver exactly what our clients are looking for. In any experiences we build, the user is the most important part of the experience.

When it comes to solving problems (cross-browser or otherwise), there's not such thing as a blackhole bug to me. If IE isn't showing rendering an image, you might not have saved it with the right color profile. If something works great on Chrome for mobile but not on Android's terrrrrrrrible built in web browsers, it could be something as simple as a malformed meta tag. The key to solving any problem (Internet-related or not) is learning from all your past mistakes and thinking fast on your feet.

I love using jQuery, SASS/CSS and PHP when I build websites, but am always willing to use any language or framework to get the job done.

Have questions about the Internets? Ask my friend, Stack Overflow, I might answer your question!
