Allan Kenneth Haggett

Hello! My name is Allan Haggett, and I live on Coast Salish territory, in the city of Victoria.

I used to build websites for many different types of organizations from 1999 to 2011. Now I'm looking to use that skillset to help a progressive organization as a content manager/office admin.

Education

Between 2005 - 2007 I attended Camosun College, studying geography, English, and a smattering of the social sciences. Despite not getting a degree of any sort, the experience was transformative and I have no regrets about signing those loans papers; no regrets at all. I taught myself programming and web design by reading manuals. I consider myself a lifelong learner, who is always reading.

Experience

  • As a key-holder, I opened and closed the shop independently, cashing in/out.

Freelance Website Developer

1999 - 2011

  • Built dozens of websites for myriad organizations across sectors.
  • Worked through agencies and consulted directly with stakeholders, coordinating within diverse groups.
  • Learned many new technologies on the job while adapting to a rapidly-changing industry.

Summary

I learn new technologies fast. I am a patient instructor and capable adviser on many topics. I can program and automate workflows. I am a well read, competent writer and editor with a knack for the simple. I have a wide range of skills to draw upon, and want to contribute those to an organization doing socially responsible work.
