I absolutely love learning new things. I spend a lot of my free time staying up-to-date with the latest in technology and the best practices in Agile. I am recently obsessed with learning Vue.js and agree with others that state it could become the new jQuery.

I started a digital marketing company called Digital Dreams in 2016 that helps businesses attract new customers, improve their bottom line, and increase efficiencies. I create websites and marketing materials (brochures/flyers, presentations, ads, etc.). I’ve created apps and tools that allow users to schedule test drives and calculate payments for automotive dealerships, and schedule appointments for hair salons, massage parlors, and mechanics.

I also love Agile and use it not only at work but also for all of my work at Digital Dreams. I write about Agile and how I use Atlassian’s tools at work and in my own personal use on Jirahelper. I attend conferences and webinars for Agile as often as I can and am eager to share what I know with everyone.

Web Design

I’ve designed and built many websites (426 and counting) using a variety of tools and frameworks. My current go-to methodology is to sketch out the site and workflow, create a high-fidelity prototype in Adobe XD, and then create the site using Bootstrap and Vue.js (if needed).


I have created hundreds of websites on WordPress for myself, for clients, and for charities.  I have created sites for automotive dealerships, salons and spas, mechanics, technology companies, pharmacies, and many more.


One of the main features that I provide clients through Digital Dreams is SEO, primarily local SEO and reputation management. I use Unamo and SEOMoz to perform competitor and keyword analysis and monitoring. I use white-hat techniques to help my clients rank on Google and Bing.


I have built applications for clients when needed using the Ionic framework. I also will design mobile apps for companies and other developers for their clients. I find this to be incredibly interesting as it ties into the requirements gathering that I do at work. I love seeing and hearing people’s reactions when they see what I was able to create based on their needs – always deliver more than expected.


I respect how you bring order to the chaos. And of course, the standard of your work is utterly unmatched.

I’ve never worked for someone with such a wide skillset before. Jerry works harder than anybody and does a good job getting requirements that we can turn into code. He understands development and has our backs as developers.

Master Information Systems Management
with distinction

I specialized in Project Management. My Capstone project was the implementation of an Emergency Response System for the city of Loganville. I created the project plan and submitted it for review to the city’s planning commission. I worked with the commission to determine the IT requirements and was granted the responsibility for this area of the project. I identified and scored risks, created a new template for change requests (I reviewed some as well), created status reports, and presented progress reports to the commission.



Bachelor Technical Management
with distinction

I minored in Project Management.  My senior project for this class involved the creation of an Underwriters Portal System for a regional insurance company. I met with senior management and underwriters to determine their needs and created the project requirements and work breakdown structure. I mapped out the user workflow and designed the portal. I conducted a thorough risk assessment and mitigation strategy. I then monitored the project through to completion – handling change requests and creating progress reports and presentations as needed.
