Sir David of Lee

Who I am

My name is Dave Lee. I am currently the VP, Head of Technology at MullenLowe US.

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 Head of Technology I strive to ensure our team has everything we need to ensure we're delivering the best experiences across all devices and platforms. We work directly with Art Directors, Copywriters, and UX/UI Designers to ensure we all deliver exactly what our clients are looking for. In any digital projects 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 Edge 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.
