My name is TJ Kelly and I’m an independent user experience designer, developer, and strategist. I work out of my home in North Andover, Massachusetts.
My name is TJ Kelly. I’m in my twenties and I have a beautiful wife and daughter. I live in sunny North Andover, MA. As of April 2013, I am the Technical Director for Fishnet Media, a marketing and design agency in Portsmouth, NH.
I began consulting and working independently in August, 2012. I’ve worked for clients in marketing, application development, travel, financial services, construction management, and multiple small businesses. I frequently visit clients in their offices—nothing beats face-to-face.
In October of 2011, I began work as Director of User Experience at McDougall Interactive, an internet marketing company in Danvers, MA. I oversaw day-to-day technical operations for 30+ client websites and web marketing efforts. I managed a small overseas team and directed all experience, design, and programming/development strategy for all 30+ clients. I worked alongside several SEO, PPC, content strategy, and analytics “propellor-head” technical managers in a small, dynamic team.
Before Danvers, I worked from 2007-2011 as the lead designer and front-end developer for a StudentCity, a youth travel company in Peabody, MA. During my time at StudentCity, I was responsible for the company’s web presence and identity. I oversaw all public-facing web projects and directed the brand identity on the web. I guided the company’s voice in social media and personally managed many of our various social profiles.
I got my start at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, MA, where I worked as a junior developer for the dot-edu Advancement Communication office. I gained invaluable experience working with a talented team at UMass. I’ve been creating simple, beautiful websites for more than ten years and I focus on user experience and usability in all my websites and designs.
I graduated from UMass Amherst in 2007, with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Communication and Information Technology and I’ve been working full-time in the web design and development industry ever since.
