The Web Services team is made up of individuals devoted to unique specialties within website design, application development, web content, and social media. Combined, the team provides the level of expertise and experience necessary to successfully design, develop, and manage your website.


Carlos MoralesCarlos Morales

Director of Web Services

Carlos began designing websites in the mid-90s while being completely enamored by the Hot Dog HTML editing software and the seemingly endless supply of MIDI files that needed to be posted on the web. Soon the shiny and welcoming exterior of HTML wore off and Carlos was lost for several generations. Lured in by the appeal of FPS and MMORPG worlds, many nights were lost to these deviant technologies. Desperate to clean up his act, he found himself at the footsteps of UF. The kind souls brought him in and cleaned him up, providing shelter and nourishment. He hasn’t left since. He can sometimes be found wandering the halls still searching for red armor.

When he’s not busy fixing current websites, he acts as director for the UF Health Web Services team, attempting to lead his troupe of gifted technicians to the land of semantically correct code, beautiful and usable websites, and satisfied customers.

If he’s not online you can find him on the water.

Bill has been making things for the web since he was fifteen. He holds a B.A. in Web Design from the University of Central Florida, where he also worked designing and building web stuff for large student organizations.

Holly Marie GibbsHolly Marie Gibbs

Senior Web Designer

Holly is a designer who finds joy in creating pixel-perfect screens that users interact with on a daily basis. She has worked in many fields — alumni communications, magazine design, book publishing, educational travel, web and app design — and digital is where she feels most at home.

She’s originally from Key Largo, Florida, where she grew up sailing, swimming, boating and kayaking through the mangroves. Her first computer was a Packard Bell with no mouse that ran on MS DOS, and she got excited every time she heard the electronic chorus of her modem when she signed in to AOL.

She came to Gainesville in 2003 for college at UF and fell in love with the uniqueness of the town and has been here ever since. She has a degree in communications, and focused on education, design and computer science while she was studying.

When she’s not experimenting with ideas in her sketchbook or on her computer, she loves dipping her toes in the ocean, reading, dabbling in Olympic weightlifting, being outside with her three dogs, and doing geeky things with her friends (like cosplaying at Dragon*Con and playing Dungeons & Dragons).

Sean JengSean Jeng

Senior Web Developer

Sean got his first taste of web development when he saw his friend building an HTML web page to display Dungeons & Dragons character statistics. Since then he has determined that HTML is decidedly not dorky enough, and picked up a couple of programming languages.

Thanks to his stubborn refusal to give up, which is the decades-long result of being really bad at video games, Sean has become proficient at developing and debugging complex solutions. In addition, Sean has learned to be flexible enough to work with various 3rd party software solutions to meet clients’ needs.

Jeff StevensJeff Stevens

Assistant Web Manager

Jeff studied history and advertising account management before deciding that the creative side was more where his heart belonged and he became a graphic and web designer, working freelance and in a variety of small jobs. Eventually this led back to higher ed and webmaster positions with Student Financial Affairs and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, where he worked in communications, marketing, design, and web development, not to mention honing his skills as a meddlesome do-gooder.

As Assistant Web Manager, Jeff is the Web Services go-to person for questions on analytics, SEO, social media, information architecture, usability, Star Trek, and the latest internet memes.

 

 


Nina TrombiNina Trombi

Support and Training

Nina first learned how to code in HTML in 2000 as a way to build her own websites to alleviate the boredom of living far from her home and friends. Her first website was a gallery of Sailor Moon manga scans on Angelfire.com. She continued to work on her own personal websites and interests for the next few years, and eventually transferred those skills into the workplace where she managed websites for various offices, groups, and projects at Santa Fe College.

As she continued to develop her skills in web design, she branched into graphic design, and eventually instructional design.  While Nina is self-taught in many ways, she’s a proud graduate of the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration.

Kyle TuckerKyle Tucker

Web Developer

Kyle started learning HTML at the ripe age of 12, back when Microsoft FrontPage was the best thing that had ever happened to the Internet. Not long after, he met and fell in love with PHP, learning the language by building and breaking phpBB forum sites. Kyle entered professional life as a graphic designer in 2011, but couldn’t seem to shake his affection for Web development—so two years later, he left graphic design behind, ran away with Web development and hasn’t looked back since.

Outside the office, Kyle is an amateur barbecue smoker, practicing his craft with a hand-built UDS—which is short for “ugly drum smoker” and definitely lives up to its name. He also enjoys being really, really bad at golf.

Greg Turner, Web developerGreg Turner

Senior Web Developer

Greg scored a 790/800 on the GRE’s logic portion, then turned around and earned an MFA in fiction. Since that time he has been employed as a resume writer (don’t ask, he will not look at your resume), advertising copy writer, help-files developer, project manager, college instructor,  and Web designer and developer.  His most interesting jobs have been in warehouses.

Greg excels at application design and process logic, navigating murky waters, and finding practical solutions to esoteric problems.  He dreams only in color, and his hair has always been like that.
