Testimonials

I've worked with Neene the past two years at SiriusXM Radio. I was introduced to her by a co-worker that worked with Neene in a former job. My co-worker had been using Neene as a freelancer for years ... which alone speaks volumes of her abilities. Her coding skills and design skills are well-suited for a high volume, fast-paced business-to-consumer environment. She has the ability to receive a project and turn it around quickly. She easily translates marketing speak into great creative or email. I could always count on Neene to do things quickly, accurately, and without error. Add to that a professional demeanor and fantastic attitude. I recommend Neene for any project-level work needed.

– Marty Moore
   Marketing Manager, SiriusXM

I have had the pleasure to work with Neene during my tenure at SiriusXM. She was a fantastic freelance web/email designer/coder. She is extremely creative, always on time and delivered fantastic work. I would certainly recommend her to anyone and use her again.

– Adam Posner
   Associate Director, Marketing Strategy at Erwin Penland

I never have to worry with Neene--the work is always stellar, and done in less time than most graphic artists I've worked with. She is accurate, fast and extremely responsible--all the qualities you need to get a project done!

– Pablo Mannino
   Senior Project Manager, Sirius XM Radio Inc.

Neene is one of those rare breeds who is incredibly creative and conceptual, yet also has the left-brain goods to meet technical and organizational requirements in a design workflow. As my partner at Lasso Design, she handled all our business challenges with gusto, and her ability to stay calm under pressure is enviable. Neene would be a great member to any team — just keep her busy!

OCT 2008 - PRESENT:  SiriusXM Radio, Inc.  New York  NY
WEB DESIGNER/CODER

Involved in 2 major redesigns of the Sirius and XM shop sites ; now consolidated into one shop.siriusxm.com. In 2011, a new branding was launched. I had to take the approved look and feel and integrate it into the shop sites. I created comps of each web page based on the functionality specs provided by the developers. These comps were accompanied by a detailed description of every element of the page. This was followed by an extensive Q & A process. Both projects lasted approximately 7-9 months. Simultaneously, the live shop sites were being maintained and updated regularly. In January 2013, the shop sites were consolidated into one.
