Grizzard's New Site

September 2000 - January 2001

Site Specialist, Content
EzGov
Contract
Achievements
Hand-Coded EzGov's new portal website. The new design includes mouseovers, drop-down menus and overall easier navigability. The site uses cross-platform and cross-browser HTML, JavaScript, and DHTML. The images on the site have been made sure to be web "color-safe," as well as compressed. To ensure version control, ClearCase software was used religiously, as well as was Rational ClearQuest - for implementing changes.
After creating "walk-through" Demos of various functioning applications that EzGov offers to Government Agencies for marketing to use as presentation pieces, I then created templates so the process would be less complicated in the future.
During the Government Elections during the later part of 2000, I implemented changes on some of our customized sites, in order to accurately represent the status of the candidates that were also our clients.
Created EzGov's Bi-Weekly Bulletin Newsletter in HTML format, using HomeSite 4.0, in combination with Netscape's Composer and Messenger.
Coded Company Press Releases weekly, implementing the basics of NotePad & Word with proprietary software, "Article Builder."

OTHER SKILLS

Communication Skills

My writing skills are very much above average, and I am a clear speaker. I am more than comfortable speaking in front of an audience, and can facilitate meetings and brainstorming sessions, if need be. I enjoy communicating with others.
I have been maintaining this website since June of 1999:

Interpersonal Skills

I am a friendly, polite person, with a positive attitude. I work well with others, as I am very much a "people-person" and am able to deal with difficult situations in a careful, considerate manner.

Learning Skills

I have a high capacity for learning, pick up new skills and ideas quickly, and thrive on challenges. Enthusiasm and creativity give me an edge on tough projects. Many consider me to be an "out of the box" thinker.

Problem Solving Skills

My analytical skills help me troubleshoot problems and uncover root causes. I am creative and tenacious -- not to mention I like to "work until the job gets done."
