Sir David of Lee

A Gentleman Website Maker and Purveyor of Awesome

Who I am

My name is Dave Lee. I am currently a Senior Creative Technologist at Mullen in downtown Boston.

At Mullen I lead projects across several clients including Jet Blue, Ernst & Young, The Department of Defense, U.S. Cellular, and Mass Mutual.

Building 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 a Senior Creative Technologist I strive to ensure our sites keep their perfectly designed integrity while also looking just as perfect across all browsers and devices. I work directly with Art Directors, Copywriter, and Designers to ensure we both deliver exactly what our clients are looking for. In any experiences I 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, 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!
