Who Am I?

My name is Tudor Whiteley and I view myself as a jack of all trades when it comes to digital media. Originally trained as a fine artist at McMaster Univeristy I made the leap to Digital through a post-graduate degree in New Media from Sheridan College. My first job out after Sheridan was a five year stint as a web developer at then RIM (BlackBerry). Here I was trained as a usability expert and received my Usability Analyst Certification through Human Factors. I have sinced worked as a design lead for 14 other designers, created nation wide, data driven websites for the likes of Mazda and Leave the Pack Behind, worked as the solo designer within a mobile apps company bent on creating the next Pandora for mobile video, created 3D videos for industry leaders such as Lockheed Martin, lead a team in the generation of a wide range of HTML5 based widgets and a supporting SDK for a mobile, HTML5 based app on iOS, Android and BlackBerry.

I have worked on both sides of the fence. As a front-end developer amongst back-end developers as well as a full blown designer. One of my true strengths is that I can communicate with both and translate for the other. I am a strong team leader but also work well within a team to get projects done on time and on spec.
