About

Shawn Waite

I'm a goal driven individual that likes to be creative and always wants to be producing something: photographs, videos, wooden craft, websites, etc. As a private pilot I enjoy flying and seeing things from a different perspective. As I carry this method over to the working world, I'm able to solve problems and come up with solutions that others may not see.

 

 

 

MY LIFE

WILD LIFE PHOTOGRAPHY

I love to be outdoors shooting landscapes and wildlife. This photo was taken at Baxter State Park. See more on Flickr.

A BOY AND HIS TOYS

In 2010 I earned my Private Pilot's License. I've been blessed to have access to two airplanes in Dexter (1B0) and love to ride my motorcycle at every chance I get.

PADDLING

I've built two wooden boats, a canoe and a kayak, and love to paddle flat water when the weather is perfect for it.

R&R

I love to take long walks on the beach. It's nice to be close to the ocean and the beautiful and rugged Maine coast. Everyone needs to take a break once in a while and I enjoy being around the water, it's the most relaxing place for me.

MY BEAUTIFUL WIFE

There's not enough space here to describe my wife. I'm so thankful for her and she means the world to me.

MY SON, MY CO-PILOT

My son loves to fly with me and I could not find a better co-pilot. He'll no doubt have a pilot's license of his own soon enough.

CHURCH

Church is and always has been a big part of my life. I thank God and country for the freedoms we still have in this country.

BASEBALL

Baseball is a big part of my son's life, so it's a big part of our lives. He loves the game and enjoys playing in just about any position on the field. (But he mostly pitches and catches)

HARLEY DAVIDSON

This is a new chapter in my life. I've rode on motorcycles since I was thirteen, but in 2013 we bought our first Harley Davidson. We have enjoyed being part of the Harley Family and riding with a large group.

FLYING

I absolutely love flying. It was real challenge for me to earn my wings in 2010 but it has been so rewarding to share aviation with so many people.

MY WORK

Programmer Analyst

I've worked for a Fortune 500 company for the past 15 years and have been a Programmer Analyst for the past twelve years. I primarily code in ColdFusion using JavaScript and jQuery to enhance the user experience. Though I'm not a designer, I enjoy stretching myself and increasing my skill-set with challenging projects that allow me to design front end sites.

The latest project I am most proud of is a Content Management System (CMS) that publishes news for the entire company to consume. We developed it quickly and cleanly using the Agile Method. The tool allows image upload and cropping, includes tags and topics for each story and uses an approval process to publish news. The story page is previewed and if accepted, organized on the front page with a drag and drop interface. The page is then published with a click of a button for all to read. Other features on the site include polls and video clips.

As I find myself at a crossroad in life, I am looking for other opportunities that will allow me to use the skills I've developed over the years and challenge me with new concepts and processes.

If your company is looking for a creative, enthusiastic, technical developer that wants to continually improve themselves and others, please read my resume and consider contacting me.
